We began at the Bagley Lakes trailhead #682 and hiked counterclockwise along the bagley Lakes. Lunch was at a location between Iceberg and Hayes Lake and then we descended slightly to near the level with Iceberg Lake and climbed along and above Mazama Lake. After passing the Lake we had a small snow field to cross below the north wall of Table Mountain following a ridge trail to Artist Point. We then took the Wild Goose trail back to the trailhead.
After the large permanent cairns every ten feet along the Wild Goose trail and we crossed the road a couple times, it was a bit difficlt to find the trail after it came to a few parking lots.
