It's great up here right now. The cooler weather is keeping most of the crowds away and you can still find wild raspberries and gooseberries to snack on the whole way!

This was a pretty mellow hike as far as the trial goes. I really enjoyed it because there are a handful of lakes you can explore if you take the loop. Wildflowers are in full bloom right now too.

Moderate hike with a rare climb here and there. Many lakes, each looking different from the last. The best view comes from the area surrounding Clyde Lake. Worth the drive from Salt Lake.

Spent two days backpacking & exploring around the entire loop and the trail was very easy to follow even though there was quite a bit of snow still in some places. Views from the Notch are incredible and can't be beat for the effort required to get there. A lot of bang for your buck up here, and some of the easiest high wilderness backcountry there is really, even if all you're interested in is a day hike. Next trip I'll have to go climb Mount Watson, and I definitely wont leave the fishing pole home either. Such beautiful country!

Took the family up to do this hike over the weekend but did it as a loop... up to Clyde Lake (2m), then over to where it connects with the Notch Mountain Trail (1m), then down the east side of Wall Lake (2.5m) for a total of 5.5 miles. The Clyde Lake side of this loop is *nowhere* near as "heavily trafficked" as the Notch Mountain Trail side (as you can tell by the trail conditions) but it was a nice easy route to follow with lakes everywhere!

Like Steve said. It's perfect for a beginning backpacker. Took my son in his first trip this weekend. Gorgeous scenery all around and ample camping. An easy day hike too.
