The Eightmile trail has a few blowdowns, but is nearly snow-free to the lake. There are no difficulties, and this gentle trail (except for the first 1/2 mile) is a good destination at this time of year.
Eightmile Lake was dammed many years ago, and you can view the remains at the outlet.
We continued around the right side of the lake, passing a large boy scout group who were just getting ready to leave. We postholed our way to about 5080' along Eightmile Creek (a loooooooonngggg ways), then headed up to Jack Ridge peak at 7828'. No technical difficulties except for some postholing.
