Lots of snow, just starting to melt. Way too many people go to Silver Lake these days. At least by continuing on you rid of the masses.

Fair warning, USFS advises road access to the trail head will not open until "The 2nd week of June, or so."

The road is closed as part of the reservoir and camp site repairs on the section of road you have to drive through to access Silver Lake. Your alternative is to hike an additional 4 miles or so to reach the trail head from the reservoir parking area.

If you're uncertain, phone first.
