June 13, 2015 Trip Report: Ryan and I headed up the Hurley on Friday night and car-camped at the trail head. Goal was to poke up to Semaphore Lakes and beyond. Stats Total distance: ~8.81km Cumulative elevation gain: 460m The hike to the lakes offers quick access to surrounding summits including Locomotive, Tender, Caboose, Handcar, Face, etc. Pros: quick access to alpine, range of scrambles from beginner to advanced levels, water sources along the trail.
