11.5 miles and 3200ft of gain for my 4th trip to Tallac (and second time via the Glen Alpine trailhead).  I had last been to Lake Gilmore late last season as part of my TRT hike trough Desolation.

This was my 4th or 5th option for an outing today.  Burnside Lake Road and Blue Lake Road were still closed and the Willow Creek road to Freel/Jobs had some deep ruts that I didn't feel comfortable subjecting my car to.

The early road was heavily flooded, but luckily there was an established use trail off to the right.

Looking back at the one major creek crossing.  (Almost missed the turn across the creek- the trail on the near side was obscured by snow)
