I'm taking planning on visiting 60 lakes basin next week. Wondering how hard it is to get over into gardiner? It looks pretty easy to go up from the south end of 60 lakes basin (the second furthest south lake). Any pointers on the trail over kearsarge and glen? Going solo and comfortable up to class 2-3. Got a nothing but time so side trips are welcome. Scenery and lakes are the priority. Not fishing this time. Thanks in advance!

I just posted trip report on Gardiner, see here and feel free to pm me for gpx file or any questions. http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin ... d_id=81667
If you do make it over and have time, I strongly suggest getting down to lower Gardiner lakes, upper does not hold a candle to lower in terms of beauty...to me anyways. Kearsarge and Glen are straightforward along a well traveled trail.

Found my answers thanks to the HST map. Great feature for trip planning even though my phone takes forever .I'll post a brief report at the end of the month. Thanks for the great site!
