Summit Lake 4-11-12

Drive in from the dam is 8 miles total; the first 3 miles are paved and the final 5 miles are good condition gravel.

Better weather than forecasted. Mostly sunny and some overcast.

Trail is steady up for 2.5 miles thru a rather uninteresting forest. Only an occasional view on the way up and no view from the Elliot Creek Ridge. We crossed the road and bushwhacked on up to a viewpoint for lunch. On the way down we circled the lake (a poor excuse for a pond according to Judy).

Group assessment is that we don't have to do this one again.
