I started @ the Pratt Lake TH on Sunday the 13TH around 9 AM. The trail was in great condition all the way up to Lower Tuscohatchie Lake. After the lake there was a few blown down trees and some scrub over growth on the trail leading up to Melakwa Lake. Over all, not bad trail conditions. I eventually made my way down to Denny Creek and my GPS showed 16.5 miles. Of course there was the walk back to the Pratt Lake / Granite Mountain TH parking lot on the forest road 5800. My GPS watch showed a total of 19.72 in 8 hours & 50 minutes. I arrived back to my truck around 6PM. I only stopped for a 5 minute break, the occasional picture and a 10 minute lunch break at Melakwa Lake. The trail is rated difficult and I would agree. There wasn’t really any mosquitos or bugs on the trail. If you want to test your hiking endurance, seek solitude & view beautiful lakes, mountains & forests, this is the hike for you.
