I am a 33yr old female who has chronic back pain from an injury 5 years ago. I am really wanting to do his hike and need some input. I would be spending 2 nights there and stressed about the hike in and out. What's the trail like in detail so I know if I can do it. Thanks. Any input or advice or help is great and most welcomed!!!

Just hiked this trail two days ago. We hiked from Elk Lakes road via Forsyth Creek to the Connor Lakes Cabin. I will be uploading a new trail post with GPS track included from the trail head to the cabin. Our GPS measured the distance as 17km one way. The first bit of the trail to the old drill site isn't too bad and maintains pretty easy grades. There are a couple rocky sections where previous years floods have widened stream paths that required walking across. After the drill pad to the cabins is where the trail gets difficult. After your second bridge crossing, the trail climbs 120 meters in just under a kilometer making it quite a grunt. After that section, there is some ups and downs until you reach the south end of the lake where tent sites are available (with no facilities). It is another 5km of trail to get to the North end of the lake where the cabin is located. That stretch of trail has some steep sections as well as sections where you are following the shoreline, often over/through drift wood piles. If you have any specific questions; feel free to email me and I'll do my best to answer them (danielpiderman@hotmail.com)
