My uncle's favorite fishing spot. So quiet that when a rain drop hits the water surface it echoes. It's a must to go off trail to see the sister lakes.
There are five lakes in the basin. The trail is fairly rocky, especially nearer the lakes. There are multiple stream crossing that weren't difficult. I was there in mid-July and the trail wasn't very muddy. It helps to keep in mind that the lakes are at above 10,000 feet and the air is thin. The trees shield you from strong winds throughout. We met around 30 people on the weekend we were there. There are some fantastic views on the trail.
This was a pretty nice trail that we did as an overnighter. This could easily have been done as a day hike, as our roundtrip was 7 miles, including a short side trip.
It was fairly strenuous in a couple spots, especially where you're going over the pass into the basin, although the steep inclines didn't last long. The trail was quite rocky in some places, but was always easily identifiable. If you follow the signs, there's no getting lost here. Cuberant lake was larger than I expected. The small lake you pass just before reaching the main lake was pretty good size, and we actually mistook it for the main lake for a minute. We caught only one fish, but it was pretty good size for the Uintas. We passed only one small group on the trail and they caught several fish.
There were really great campsites, but we had to go around to the north side to find them.
We did a short side trip to the small lake to the west, but there was nothing too interesting there.
All in all, this was a pleasant hike, and a great place to find some solitude on a nice lake.
