Interest: Err, need you ask? Hiking :-)
I added a quick update on the road in another thread (I'll add something to the main conditions thread later when I get chance).
The trail from Lizzie Lake up to the cabin is well marked and easy to follow. There are numerous downed trees to make life more difficult/interesting, but none of them is especially hard to deal with. Watch for a wasp's nest as the trail levels out again just before passing through a small boggy meadow. (Fortunately they weren't bothered by our group choosing to rest there :-)
The trail from the cabin is well-defined up to Arrowhead Lake, then Heart Lake and beyond to the col above Iceberg Lake. (Just make sure you follow the flagging and turn right over the creek soon after leaving the cabin, and not take the obvious path that dead-ends in the meadows...) After Iceberg Lake, follow the cairns onto the east shoulder of Tabletop and you should pick up a trail just before the descent into Cherry Pip pass. Out of the pass, the trail becomes faint but it is there if you look closely, even where it crosses the (numerous) boulder fields (with cairns for help). This trail will lead you down to Caltha Lake - if that's not where you're heading, you'll have to watch for that and continue following the contours to pick up another trail up to the pass above Tundra Lake.
I can provide GPS tracks if anyone is interested.
Finally, if you're wavering, just go :-)
