Extremely wet, windy, foggy, cold, muddy, etc.  Hard to believe it was August up there.

Yeah, Yukon.  It sure felt more like September.  wink.gif  lol.gif

We sure didn't feel like hiking when we saw the drizzle, but it ended up being a fun hike anyways!

No pictures here.  For the uninitiated this is a route, not a trail, and a slightly brushy one at that.  I got soaked, dried out, and resoaked a few times.  By the time we hit Lillian, I was very wet, and the rain was coming down.  My fun meter was declining, so we chose to head out.

I think the main reason I left early was I did not want to come down this steep, muddy path in the dark.  Even in daylight we took a couple of side trails before finding our way back to the main path.  It took a lot of guts to finish this under less than optimal conditions.

Yea I guess everyone has a different "fun meter" scale..  lol.gif
Sounds like there were enough harmless slips in the mud/crap to go around. That scramble rock looked a little wet.

I've kinda wanted to explore this route to the lake but not in the rain/dark  eek.gif
How was that Rocky run road or whatever it's called? I've heard it's maybe not a place to take your new Lexus.

Magellan, the footing going up was bad and the drifting fog obscuring the ridges made route finding a little interesting!  It took us 1hr 14min to do the 2600' gain but just over 2hrs to get everyone back down.  The group stayed together on the descent and let's just say there was more than 1 slip coming down the "trail".   lol.gif

BikeJr, I wouldn't take a Lexus on that road.  Narrows down in several places with brush and you'd probably end up with more than a few scratches.  Ground clearance wise, no problem.

The route is not bad in the dark if its not raining... smile.gif

The road is fine, but not for a car with low clearance that is new and you don't want to get scratched.

I think I need to buy an old jeep or something. While my car isn't new it is black. I assume the scratches might result because it's brushy/overgrown?

It looks like tracing it out it is maybe about a 2 mile walk if you don't wanna drive it. Still probably shorter than the Margaret trail route.
