BackpackingGreat!

The day from Edna to Alice was challenging for a 74 year old flat lander from Houston. Great hike in spite of lots of smoke from west fires.

This is an amazing route. Alice Lake is stunning and it is complemented by many other lakes and peaks that make the whole route well worth it. We started at Pettit with our first night at Alice, and our second night at Upper Cramer. When we finished we took the boat taxi across and got ice cream. Great experience. The shuttle has set times to pick you up, but when the taxi comes across to drop people off you can waive them down and head back early. We got to dock at 11 right when a group was being dropped off so it was perfect for us. Mosquitos was the only down side. If you stop for a breather you get swarmed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoZAj5K4Cow

First to Review

Hiked the reverse of this route (Pettit to Redfish) over a 4-night trek with 7 friends. June 30 - July 4. Day tripped to Saddleback Lakes instead of the Alpine Lake detour. Snow was more persistent than expected but very navigable with moderate GPS usage. Higher altitudes frosted our gear over night but continually warming throughout the week. Mosquitoes were a huge inconvenience at Toxaway and below the Cramer chain. More manageable at higher altitudes. Crossed a mess of an avalanche field between Pettit and Toxaway but doable. River crossing between Cramer and Redfish was roughly 3-4 feet of freezing rushing snow melt but everyone managed to cross.

The road is closed in the winter, so we walked to the lake. This is part of that walk.
