Elk Lake Mar 5 2012.
Elk Lake trail report: Was at Elk lake yesterday. Mix of weather, sometimes sunny and clear, snowing at other times.
About 2' of snow at Granite, 6' at Elk and 10+ on top of the Smith range... I wouldn't recommend taking the outside loop (East); marking is virtually non existant, 10'+ deep cross ditches and alders down everywhere.
Even the inside loop (west) has has alder and cross ditch problems, but not nearly as bad (although it is well marked). Lots of water issues though with big ruts down the middle of most of the quad road.
Overall a very tough go, so make sure you know what you're doing.
Thanks to PRPAWS & the ATV Club for all their hard work.
