Details

Fast-moderate to moderate pace - 2+ mph. Starting out at the Echo Lake camping area at around 10,700', we will gain about 400' in about a mile, and then we will descend around 560' in just over a mile to Vance Creek.  From the creek, the trail pitches up at variously moderate and steep intervals. (Remember: on the way back,  roughly the second-last mile will be an uphill re-gain of the 560' we descended near the beginning of our day...!!!
