Yes it's very low impact, did not see a soul back there for the entire trip.
Saw a bear near Grizzly Lakes at a small meadow full of wild flowers near a
rock slide before the trail reaches the lakes where I spent an hour waiting
out a thunderstorm.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
