I tried to hike this trail with my family today. It is no longer open. There are private property signs and a chain up shortly after the start of the trail. Says Aaron
At Eek Lake during the summertime months highs are in the 60's. Once the sun is down it descends down to the 40's. Highs during the wintertime are regularly in the 10's, and winter nights come with lows in the-10's to Eek Lake. Eek Lake is pretty dry mostly. The wettest month of the year is commonly August, that's the one that rains the most; February is when it's the driest.
