My family and I hiked this trail in 2012. Another trail we found out about it in Colorado's Incredible Backcountry Trails by David Day. The first day was perfect, we didn't see another hiker the entire time. We covered the entire distance in one day and reached Luna Lake before sunset. The scenery along the Wyoming Trail is spectacular and can be quite challenging at times. If you are looking for a good three day trip, this one is hard to beat.
