It’s a beautiful area, other than the fact that half the trees have died from nettle infestations. Thanks global warming! Hopefully it will be pretty again in 100 years, after new tree species have a chance to replace the one that is being extinguished from the mountain range.

Absolutely gorgeous, but be sure to prepare for classic Uinta mosquitoes. They were relentless! Bring a face net for any time spent near the lakes

Don’t follow the main map. It will take you farther and up a steep rocky incline. My route takes you to the lake. Lots of bugs but it was amazing. No fish their either. Had more luck at Amethyst. Lots of people on the weekend.

Great trail and beautiful wildflowers currently. Had a late start at 7 PM and made it to amethyst lake by 10:30 PM to set up camp. Muddy but doable. Surprised that the mosquitos weren’t bad-we just used bug spray.

Hiked in the Grandaddy Basin July 9-10. The trail conditions are good, no mud to speak of. The mosquitoes however are abundant. I kept 100% Deet on all the time and it did work to keep the bites away, however the flys and mosquitoes buzzing your face is annoying. The fishing was slow, I caught several nice cutthroat trout.

The off trail portion was more difficult than expected. This is truely off trail and we navigated mostly from land marks and lakes. Be prepared for some clambering over rocks and trees to find hidden lake. Other than that, the hike was beautiful and quiet. A few bugs but some bug spray did the trick.

Trail is easy to follow. We hiked mid July and like others have said, the mosquitoes are THICK. Keeps you motivated to keep moving :) Very pleasant hike. Did with both our dogs and they loved all the lakes out there. Narrow/rocky road to get to the start of the hike (about 6 miles), so recommend a sturdy vehicle.

This is a beautiful hike. The hike has a pretty strenuous uphill spot that took us time to get up. But the lake is breathtaking and the fishing was good!

Rated 5 stars for adventure and views. Took the chute/boulder field route which the low part coming down was the hardest part... harder than the two class 3 chutes above. Agree with everything said about this peak.

Probably not for folks not used to boulder fields -- many loose rocks and even some dangerous deep crevasses you'll need to avoid. Just use common sense, stay close to the rock faces and maintain a good grip and footing. A few nice dropoffs near the top but there are a few ways to the summit if you climb around enough. The protected area on the south side of the summit is perfect for cooking or taking a rest. Started at 5ish, finished at 10pm and found my way back to the parking lot with a good light. Amazing view of Ryder & McPherson Lakes!
