INFO ABOUT TRAIL :
From journal of Bryan Lovell........second day of our hike, 14.5 miles from Eagle lake to Boulder lake is a tough hike, we had 3 to 4 litters of water, those with 4 had enough, those with 3 ran out about 2 miles short of Boulder lake. Be sure to bring PLENTY OF WATER for this leg of the trail.."
