Have you even hiked these trails? Not sure how much has changed in 2 years, but last I hiked Blanca Lake, the trail is 7.5mi or so roundtrip if you don’t add the several miles you must hike to the trailhead because of a road washout. Also the elevation gain is 3300ft. https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/blanca-lake

Hey Anthony,
I have indeed hiked these trails. Looks like we’re both saying the same thing about Blanca (just over three miles from the trailhead to the lake makes it about 7.5 roundtrip, about 1000 feet of elevation gain each of those miles up puts it just over 3k total). It’s too bad the road got washed out, which certainly adds to the effort, but I’d say it’s still totally worth the hike.

My bad, I totally misread that about the gain and got a little keyboard warrior-y on you. It’s a very rewarding hike that I still recommend to anybody with a little experience. That elevation change definitely got to my knees a bit by the end of the day, though.
