Finally made it and it is spectacular !!! Once you go all the way around the lake cross outflow/spillway and when u see a gully to the left, head that way... just before u cliff-out, look right and u will see the path. Steep climbs are broke-up with somewhat easy meadow walks. Once you find the path it's pretty easy to follow… I honestly had a much harder time coming down… once at the top you can easily find the path to the west(if you are doing the loop). As of today August 16, I really did not have any problems with bugs... but plenty of hornet nest to avoid. Pro tip: if you're running low on water, fill up at lake. There are no water sources beyond that on this boot path. At least not in late summer. Be safe... leave no trace.... have fun!
