Ascent Trip ReportAscended from Elkhorn Traverse Trail enroute from Twin Lakes to Marble Pass Trailhead. Many goats at Twin Lakes! It's a rocky, brushy scramble to the summit. Lost my GPS just below the summit.
THe road to Marble Pass trailhead is very bad. Drove it in Subaru Outback. Took an hour to drive six miles back to pavement.
