Current conditions in Dinkey Lakes Wilderness? on 07/20/2013 09:32:59 MDT Print View

Due in no small part to trip reviews in BPL, my wife and I are taking our first trip to Dinkey next week. I called the ranger to ask about water in the creeks and was told there is "some". She said they are having late August conditions (now, in mid-July) because of the dry winter.

Does anyone know current (July, 2013) conditions of the creek that drains Cliff Lake into Courtright Reservoir? Is there enough to drink? I would rather not have to schlep water from the trailhead to Cliff Lake unless necessary.

Oh, and how were the mosquitos around the lakes?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin
