I am going to be staying at Provoking lake and Head Lake in two weeks. Wondering if anyone could shed some light on the usual bugs there at the start of August as well as which backpacking site on head lake (out of the four) is the best. What about the fishing?
I hiked into the very first site on Head Lake last year.. I ended up getting a very late start (hit the trail around 1PM)and I got to the site around 6PM. For some reason I decided I didn't want to keep walking to the next site.. but the one I stayed at wasn't very nice at all.. it was literally right on the trail.. Other hikers almost literally had to step through my camp to stay on trail.
Still a nice spot though... don't let my post deter you! There is a steep rock edge into the lake at the back of the campsite which I managed to slip on and loose a nalgene bottle and my sunglasses in the lake.. heh
