We didn't go anywhere near the lake. Can't help you there. I see there's an island on it. You thinking of building a hermitage? No internet.

There are lots of free campsites along the Mason Lake Road. (I think the real name is something other than that but it's how I know it.)

I've done this hike several times. I would do Colden first via Lake Arnold. The descent of Colden towards the Lake offers spectacular views for the first 300 feet of elly loss. But the main reason...

If you change your mind-set you will not feel like you are wasting a whole day hiking the same stuff twice. Also, you could hike up WF via the Lake Placid Slide (or up the ski hill slides) then...
