Great little hike. About an hour to teeley from 251 post. road is fine for most vehicles until the final turn where it gets fairly unpassable for regular use vehicles. using these directions, you cam stop about .3 of a mile short of the trail head and not have any problems. Teeley lake and Granite are great. Not too many people passing through. Camping sites availible. Bring bugspray for spring-fall seasons.

We backpacked to Bertha May Lake Sunday afternoon. The first quarter mile to Pothole Lake is easy, the remaining 3/4 mile hike to Bertha May Lake is mostly uphill with switch backs. The campsite is comfortable and scenic, but is along the trail to Granite Lake, so was busy with numerous families hiking through to Granite Lake to swim. By evening, everyone was gone and we encountered no hikers Sunday evening or Monday morning. Driving directions to the trailhead on Outdoor Project are misleading ('unmarked' NR84 is marked and closer to the main road than indicated). High clearance is required to drive the last 1/4 mile.

I did this trail several years back as a short cut to the lakes (I'm basing may rating on that trip). I went today and all trails in the area are closed for logging. The road to the trail is a well taken care of road until about .25 mile before the TH, the road is washed out, it is passable with high clearance vehicle.
