Beautiful hike. Still covered in snow though, and theres no tree markers so it takes some effort and awareness to hike it right now. But the views are to die for.

We were going to attempt this hike in June of 2017, but signs indicated "no foot traffic allowed" Nordic skiing only.

Backpacked in and spent the night on the far side of the lake. Great fishing. Was with 3 others and caught a collective 20+ nice sized cutthroat and one Brooke trout. Nice rope swing if you are the adventurous type! Trail was rather rough due to horses using the trail when it was wet. Overall an enjoyable trip.

Super easy trail, took three small children ages 7, 5, and 3 on it. We have done it twice now its easy for kids even, the first time the stream was calm, however second time the weather had warmed up so lots of melt water and the stream was much deeper and faster. So be careful with children. We love this trail. both times we have not been to the very top the last tiny portion of the trail due to a large chunk of snow ( you can see it in the picture) i think overall its an amazing trail, so beautiful.

Great place. Would recommend this place to everyone

Access to many trails in the Wind Rivers. View of Squaretop Mountain are Spectacular.

The Hike up this trails is amazing. The view of Squaretop Mountain in the distance near both Green River Lakes and along the beautiful Green River is amazing.I Hiked from the trail-head to the Vista Pass junction this year as part of the Wind River High Route between Green River Lakes and Big Sandy Openings. Hike From Summit Lake to the trail-head on a Big Sandy Openings hike to Green River Lakes year ago.

An amazingly beautiful place. There are many trails that branch off from the big sandy trail after 6 miles. We did a 2 night 3 day loop. We hiked passed big sandy lake and clear lake the first day, camping near clear lake on the giant rock slabs. The next day we passed deep lake and temple lake, looping around we camped near rapid creek the second night. This is a loop that connects back to big sandy lake. I think most people don't realize u can loop around as many of the people we met had gone on the same path to deep lake and back. We passed many hikers on the way to deep lake but saw no one the second day hiking near rapid creek. The different scenery of mountains, lakes, meadows, and creeks were amazing. The total loop was around 24 miles.

Great and BEAUTIFUL hike! We went around 9am which was perfect. Low traffic and stunning views with the sun rising. Our 4 year old walked this hike easily and climbed to the top of the falls with a bit of help. When you reach the falls, go around the bend (looks rocky and overgrown) to get to a bridge in order to cross the river.
