    I just did the Greider lake hike on sat, 10/22/05. it was a nice day – yes, this climb is short, but intense. i counted more than 40 switchbacks on the way down. at this time of year, there was only one other couple up there – on a nice saturday! if it was cruddy – we woulda been the only folks up there! the campsites look nice up there. there’s about 6 of them. i got as good workout – not for little kids or weak folks.
