We're headed to the cabin (not the one at the middle of the lake) in about 10 days. I have been to the lake via Carter Lake trail, but not the other way. We were looking at taking a off road capable jogger for the 2 year old so my wife can wear a backpack as we're headed there for 3 days. Is the trail good enough for that? I know you can mountain bike it.
Also, does the forest service have PFDs at the cabin for the rowboat? I'll pack some in if not, but wanted to check.
