Make sure you have your all trails app. We kept going off course, especially because so many spots were so washed out!

the six mile pot- hole filled road is worth the effort, this is a good hike. there is a couple larger mud pits to get through on the trail.

Very deep pothole going up this road. We ended up turning around because we got nervous. Stars do not reflect my rating, I did not do the hike.

This trail was super muddy in many places, and it was that swamp mud. Those of you who only hike in the sandal, you have been warned: my boots sank almost to my ankle in places, and I was doing my best to go around the mud. This trail is only called a trail by the loosest if definitions. It is more fitting to call this a dryish river bed that you follow to a lake. My dog and I did fine up to Pinnacle, unfortunately couldn't make it to the peak because after the lake scramble I couldn't get line of sight on the trail and didn't want to continue if it was going to be like that the whole way (with the dog). Stopped at Bear Lake on the way back because it was right there and it was much more inviting than Pinnacle, but no streams or anything on that side. Make sure you bring something worthy of off-road, the road is thick with massive pot holes and very rocky. It's like being in a off-road vehicle test video. Honestly after the Bear Lake split in the trail, the road and trail are equally challenging! I will probably come back to this one when it's hopefully drier and I don't have the pup with me.

Trail was hard to navigate. Couldn't find the lake towards the end of the trail, so we turned back. Needing some clearing out and trail markers.
