This trail is also accessible from the trial lake trailhead parking lot. (Gps photo attached) Perfect hike for an overcast and cool day. Rarely see anyone. You'll hike past multiple lakes before climbing to the top of the mountains. Then hike over the mountain tops before dropping down to Big Elk Lake. Hiking the last stretch on a hot and sunny day is exhausting.
