To get to the Lake Fork Trailhead, head north from US 40 in Duchesne on Utah 87 following signs toward Mountain Home. North of Mountain Home, 18.9 miles north of Duchesne, the road jogs right for 0.1 mile then turns left and continues north. Just beyond the jog the pavement ends and a gravel road continues north across Tribal land. The pavement start at the national Forest boundary after the pavement starts.

Tough trail. Beautiful country, make sure you carry plenty of bug spray. The trail was tough to find at 3 different locations.

Loved it.
I thought East Basin Pass would be more trouble than it was. On the (google) map it goes through a boulder field. Truth is the Pass is further to the east and routes up through some trees or down depending on direction of travel.
Clement's Pass is amazing with the pond at the top and huge alpine meadows. There is a short cut in Squaw Basis, check the National Geographic map of the High Uinta's for more info. This will shave a mile or so, more importantly it will save elevation loss/gain.
Don't for get the fishing gear. The East Basin lakes look lonely.
Please remember to keep Leave No Trace principles in mind and limit campfire use or keep 'em really small to preserve the solitude of the region
