Squaw Basin Trail is a 19.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Tabiona, Utah that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from July until September. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This trail starts as the Rock Creek Trail at Rock Creek Trailhead. The trail meets the Squaw Basin trail after approximately 4.7 miles where you go right (east). After 3.5 miles the trail meets the Tworoose Pass trail then after a short distance the trail meets the Rock Lake Spur. Stay on the Squaw Basin trail for another 1.8 miles where the Squaw Lake Trial forks left. Squaw Lake sits in the middle of the Basin .5 miles from the junction.
The basin itself is beautiful. Fishing is fair to good in all of the lakes as well as all of the connecting streams. The switchbacks that climb from the junction along Rock Creek into the basin are mostly exposed as well as a GRIND and are best done early or late in the day.
Nice basin with a couple of short day hikes to surrounding lakes.
