So the last 5 miles of the road to this TH is gravel. The road is wide and easy to travel on with a low slung 2wd car. Graders were working on the road on 8/30/10, although there were few noticeable potholes. Hugh parking lot at the TH. As for the roughly 5 mile trail to Navaho Lake, the initial 2 miles are gently climbing thru forest on needle strewn treadway. During the last 1/2 mile or so to the junction with the Elk Creek trail, the grade noticeably toughens. You‘ll know you‘re getting close to topping out when you pass the ruins of a cabin on your left. After bearing right at the junction, the rest of the trail continues in a more or less level fashion along open ridges until the final downhill run to Navaho Lake.
