The trail parallels the river for almost the entire length and forks in the upper basin when in joins the Highline trail. You can't see much until you get to the upper basin.

Good trail started off onto the Lake Fork Trail left at 4:30pm Friday afternoon, scenic views of the river hiking up that. Camp out for the night along the river. Next day left at about 10:30am from camp went all the way up and turned up into Cleveland Pass and hiked all the way up to Cleveland Lake, from there took East Basin Trail all the way to the reservoir up there and set up camp there at about 6:30pm. Next day hiked down back to Lake Fork Trail head left camp at about 9:30am got to the car at about 1:30pm. The trail itself is very clean and well maintained which is easy for nice hiking and keeping a good speed. It is also well marked on the trees and up on the ridge with rock towers. Saw no one on the trail and a little bit of wildlife. But all in all the loop we did was about 33 miles or so and can be done in a two day period, I see it as well worth it with some great views. Be careful of the weather we ran into some thunderstorms and hail storms when exposed up top, but they pass by quickly. Recommend the hike for all levels of hikers has different types of terrain features from steep switchback to grassy fields to access roads to just a nice wooded trail.
