Have any of you been out to Lake Clark? I am thinking about heading out to Lake Clark in July next year. This will be my first trip to Alaska (though not my first off trail trip) and I'm trying to determine a route.
My current idea is here: http://caltopo.com/map?id=453V
The plan is to hike over six days in mid-July. Option 1 is my preferred route, with option 2 as the backup if option 1 seems too difficult.
Anyone ever been in/around this area? Does this seem reasonable?
The only other post I saw on here recommended calling the ranger station, but I'm assuming they're closed now. Not sure when they reopen...
I'm also definitely not looking for a guided trip, so I don't feel up to calling a guide service for advice.
Also, any recommendations for plane service--I am currently looking at Lake Clark Air.
