Started off at the parking lot and we were very discouraged because we actually had to wait 15 minutes for a parking spot. But not many of the people are going up for an overnight.
It gets cold at night and there were about five other small groups camping at the lake.
The hike is a little more technical because of the rocks and could be injurious with a pack if you aren't careful.

Headed out Saturday in the afternoon with a few thunderclouds. Trail is in good shape. Took the dog as there are plenty of small ponds, marshes to stay cool. Some water still coming down on trails in the meadows area. Higher up on the trail there are a few big trees down forcing one to go around or climb over. Mosquitos quite present as you climb up. A couple of other groups camping at lake but otherwise quiet. Mosquitos bad until sundown. Quite warm during the night. Fishing was spotty. Fish feeding but on emergers.

My uncle's favorite fishing spot. So quiet that when a rain drop hits the water surface it echoes. It's a must to go off trail to see the sister lakes.

There are five lakes in the basin. The trail is fairly rocky, especially nearer the lakes. There are multiple stream crossing that weren't difficult. I was there in mid-July and the trail wasn't very muddy. It helps to keep in mind that the lakes are at above 10,000 feet and the air is thin. The trees shield you from strong winds throughout. We met around 30 people on the weekend we were there. There are some fantastic views on the trail.

This was a pretty nice trail that we did as an overnighter. This could easily have been done as a day hike, as our roundtrip was 7 miles, including a short side trip.
It was fairly strenuous in a couple spots, especially where you're going over the pass into the basin, although the steep inclines didn't last long. The trail was quite rocky in some places, but was always easily identifiable. If you follow the signs, there's no getting lost here. Cuberant lake was larger than I expected. The small lake you pass just before reaching the main lake was pretty good size, and we actually mistook it for the main lake for a minute. We caught only one fish, but it was pretty good size for the Uintas. We passed only one small group on the trail and they caught several fish.
There were really great campsites, but we had to go around to the north side to find them.
We did a short side trip to the small lake to the west, but there was nothing too interesting there.
All in all, this was a pleasant hike, and a great place to find some solitude on a nice lake.
