Great hike up to Lake Ethel from Lake Ethel TH in Merritt. The trail is in good shape. Still quite dry and dusty. About 10 or so blowdown across the trail that are east to get over or under. Hiked up to the Eileen-Ethel saddle for more views above the lake. This is a great alternative to Colchuck Lake and other popular hikes. You can also bring dogs on this trail and camp without a permit. Access road is fine for most cars. Cell service for the whole hike.
