Details

Drive from Tolland to TH is challenging 4WD.



 Although the mileage and elevation are low, this is not an Easy hike.



At TH, the trail drops 500' to James Peak Wilderness located in a basin below James Peak's east face.  The trail is very steep so trekking poles are a must.   The trail tread is ball bearing tiny rocks  as leaders remember  from several years ago.  Fishing is allowed at the lake.



Leaders hiked this trail several years ago but have not hiked to Echo Lake.




Notes

Elevation & mileage are estimates.   Little Echo Lake is less than a mile from James Peak Lake.

August is rainy season, be certain your rain gear is in your pack.  

Early departure time due to longer drive on 4WD road and steep ascent returning to TH.
