Uphill in the late morning with that smokey haze and heat was a little sick; there was that area of downed trees to traverse too, over , under, around, odoriforous at times maybe where people had turned around or where critters live near. Following the map to the left or north ish made for a traverse-able route through the down area,,,with poles or sticks ,crawling, scaling , balancing act, webs, roots, the whole nine yards, to be fair, no mud though; then at the end of it swung back to the south (maybe better to stay rightish, hard to say) and caught the trail, near that "swoopy" area on the map just before the split that would take you to zig, and west lookout if you like, maybe a better way than up from the zig trailhead no water for 5 ish miles there........
Then past the intersections and back right up and down the valleys here are steep and long, and popular; be safe, some good scenery throughout, without a doubt. And a rewarding experience all around, getting a good wind up the last couple valleys was enlightening and beneficial.
Right turn and a break and gear change for longer downhill, nice grade, great surroundings and water at the lake!
Also, water at about the 4 mile mark going up the paradise. 10 deg cooler at the stream there
Then down to the viewpoint before the hidden lake trail and back down to the lot by paradise th.
Wanted to keep a breeze moving so gadget said 14 and a half mi at 7 hrs w brks. Incase anyone interested in that stuff. Oh there was also one of biggest monarchs I've seen. And really large and cool yellow ,black and white, web makers and orb weavers especially in the downed area; and further uphill there are some spots, but fewer webs on days like today.
Helpful and challenging. Great hike!
