The trail isnt as bad as Donna makes it out of be. Its fairly rocky for the last few miles but it wasn't what I would call a boulder field. The mosquitoes were not bad until you get up to the lakes but once you get there, they were very thick. Bring bugspray! The fishing was great at Island Lake. Lots of small rainbow trout. I used a small castmaster on a spincaster. No luck on Kidney lake but I was trying in the middle of the day. Someone told me you had to get your lure out about 80 feet.

The trailhead with parking area is about 1/4 mile before the campground. It took us a little while to figure this out.
