It was supposed to be a conventional Chain Lakes Loop Trail hike - 8.0 miles round-trip and 1700 ft elevation gain. But somehow we missed the trail-head near the Artist Point parking lot and found ourselves climbing up on the Table Mountain Trail instead. After looking at the map and finding that the trail will join the Chain Lakes Trail on the South side of the Table Mountain we decided to continue. This has added another 600 ft and a little bit of a distance but not too much. Overall - a great hike. Scenery-wise it is the first now in my personal hikes scenery rating. May be sharing that place with the Joffrey Lakes Trail (North of Pemberton).
