I was up at Dollar Lake this past weekend (14-15AUG2021) and the spring is still running but just barely. Took me about 20 minutes to fill a 2L bag. I had crawl right in and hold it up to the drips.
Trail work was done to clear all the downed trees at Dollar Lake but there is a new tree down about 0.25 miles before the junction for the camp. It is right at the muddy part as you round the corner and see Dollar saddle.
A couple hikers saw a bear on the trail near the junction to Dollar Lake camp at about 3pm on Saturday. They scared it off and it took off up the ridge apparently. They were still quite excited when I met them about 5 minutes later.
I didn’t see any trash except for a zip loc bag with clean toilet paper in it – someone must have accidentally dropped it.
