      Comments: An easy trail, ascending through a spendid forest, offering
      five of the criteria for a Classic Hike: views, lakes, flowers,
      heather-covered alpine meadows and, if luckey, herds of elk. The
      continuation to Upper Lena Lake offers a good challenge to the fit hiker
      with steeper elevations and rockier footing. 10Km to Lake Lena is 1800'
      gain, rated a 3 The 22Km to Upper Lena Lake is a 3900' gain, rated a 4+.
