Would you be starting at the Mountain Research Station? You will definitely pass a lot of researchers that way. I think you can also access them from the Lake Isabelle area (I think), and in that case you might have to hop a fence to get in the watershed. After that you probably wouldn't see many people.
Sounds like all you need to do to look innocuous is stop every once in awhile and look like you're taking measurements or something on your GPS, Dave.
