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.

Failed in 2012 due to a thunderstorm. Completed in 2013 in a swarm of blackflies, during a heat wave. Easy hike, great views of the northern sierras.

Linked up a couple of snow filled gullies above Jamison lake. Quite the bushwack to gain and link the gullies.

Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2011


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.

fedakLong Lake trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


Did Sierra Buttes earlier in the afternoon and Elwell to round out the day.

Can't say I enjoyed the Long Lake trail all that much- horrible tread, annoying grading, obscured by a talus avalanche along the face of Elwell, and umteen switchbacks toward the peak.

Pics are here.

DrewidUp in Smoke  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008


Went up the trail on the SW Ridge in quite smokey conditions due to all the current Nor Cal fires. Started at the Lakes Basin Campground Trailhead and went out past Grass Lake to Hawley Falls before heading up to the north side of Long Lake and then up Mt. Elwell. Came down around the other side of Long Lake via Mud Lake, Hellgrammite Lake and Silver Lake and finished at the other Trailhead just past Elwell Lodge. This made for a really nice loop of about 8 miles. Highly recommended. Not a strenuous summit. A beautiful and uncrowded area.

What Bob said. Elwell was very short even with snowshoes, and seemed kind of forgettable, but I enjoyed Adams a great deal.
