Beautiful area for a day hike. Summit register was soaked through, pretty much destroyed, despite being in a pipe cannister. Stopped for a swim in Long Lake on the way down.

trexkerryScenic Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2015
Short drive off of Gold Lake Road, with lots of parking and well marked trails. Followed the eastern and then northern shore of Long Lake, to a junction with the PCT, then up to the top, as a thunderstorm began. Descended back down to Mud Lake on the southwest side of the Lake to make a loop 2nd of a 3 peak day, after Haskell and before Sierra Buttes since they are all accessed via Gold Lake Road. TR is HERE.

Larry Laverty

From Silver Lake TH, followed Long Lake Trail around eastern shore of the lake, then west along the base of Elwell to ridge and up. Back the same way. Paved roads, excellent signage to trailhead, happy campers all along the way, a great day. Combined this with a survey of Eureka Peak but next lifetime will combine it with Sierra Buttes.

Snowshoe from Gold Lake Highway. Good view to the Sierra Buttes and Mount Lassen from the summit. Elwell Lodge Road still had a fair amount of snow on it, and the upper lakes were just starting to melt out.
