Trail Description:
There's something about Mt. Burdell or our luck. One of the worst rains we went though was here. Last week had to cancel due to rain, and this time there was a 50% rain predicted. In spite of that, we took our chances and for the most part it was overwhelming good weather. Our one surprise was Hidden Lake. We fully expected to see water. Instead it was dry enough to hike on and go exploring.
