Summer 2000 - Danny, Karen, Brian (8)
Distance about 5 miles one way. Gradual up hill until Duck Pass. This is a steep pass with switch backs. You can make it! Stay overnight at Duck or day hike it. To be safe take 1 qt of water per person each way kids 1/2 the amount. Drink before you feel thursty! Force your kids to have water. Sip every 15 minutes.
Depart Coldwater Trail Head. Take Lake Mary Rd. and follow signs to Coldwater Camp Ground. Drive all the way through camp ground until you get to dead end you will see restrooms on the right side.
Fishing - did not catch anything at Pika with Rooster Tails, Pather Martin and Power Bait. This is quite normal for me.

|On the way to Duck Lake on Duck Pass. Barney and Skelton Lakes in background. The good thing about this hike is you can stop at lakes along the way. If you don't make it to Duck oh well..|
|Top of Duck Pass. Duck lake is in the forground and Pika Lake is just beond. This is a 2 1/2 to three hour hike from the Coldwater trail head. We are happy to be here because it is down hill now.|
