I hiked to Dollar Lake View, far above Dollar Lake, on 9/20/19. Below is a photo of Dry Lake from Dry Lake View. It looks like there is some water in it. I did hear from another hiker that the spring at Lodgepole was still running. Not sure if that is still true. Have fun, and bring water just in case!
Hiked in to Dry Lake via South Fork trail on Friday October 18, stayed 2 nights at Lodgepole Springs camp before hiking out the same way on Sunday. Saturday was spent hiking the Sky High trail to the summit of San Gorgonio & back to Lodgepole Springs camp.
The springs at Lodgepole Springs was running well but not into the lake. Dry Lake has water in it still but not recommended as a water source, too stagnant. Plenty of water also on the way in at South Fork Meadows (as well as a spring in the ravine below Dry Lake off the trail, could hear it babbling away).
