The trail begins from a turn-out on the Mirror Lake Highway, 31 miles east of Kamas and about 1/4 mile south of Moosehorn Campground. The beginning of the trail is marked with a sign. The trail leads to Fehr, Shepard and Hoover Lakes

Great for kids and families. Absolutely beautiful scenery. We threw in some fishing with power bait and never got a bight in about 2 hours. This may have been because we were fishing the middle of the day though.

Easy, well maintained trail to three named lakes, plus smaller unnamed lakes. The hike really only gets started at Fehr Lake but goes beyond to Sheppard and Hoover Lakes. For me, an added bonus is Moosehorn Lake, just across the road from the trailhead.

Unless you're an expert mountain biker, would not recommend this trail for biking. We took a group of 24 youth/adults on this trail with bikes and there are many unnegotiable rocky patches that require dismounting. At the end of the trail, we climbed the ridge to the Murdock Basin Road and took that all the way to the Mirror Lake Highway for a total 5-hour trip. The upper section of the MBR has many fallen trees across the road.

Great trail, easy along the beautiful scenic lakes. Dog friendly. I've never seen more than a few people on the trail. Stop and stay for a while, but this time of year have your bug spray handy.

Hit Fehr, Shepherd and Hoover lakes. Then looped around Shepherd lake to see the waterfall on the other side. The trails are pretty muddy in some places, and there's a couple trees down on the trail, but nothing too crazy. Definitely recommend taking bug spray!

Awesome day hike. Did this on 6/28/17. A few little patches of snow but overall clear. Pretty muddy on some parts of the trail though. Mosquitos were pretty bad as well. But I would def do this hike again. Made it to Shepard and Hoover lakes as well and explored around a bit. There was nobody else on the trail the whole time we were there.

Great hike! It was all downhill to get to the lakes, so it was all uphill to get out, but it was not bad. The third lake, Hoover Lake, was the best one. We got to watch an osprey fishing. Other than some noisy people, it was a great day.

Gorgeous hike. Right now the wildflowers are in full bloom. To get the first lake is .5 miles. The trail does have several decent climbs.

Loved this hike. Perfect lakes to let the dogs swim. Careful of the bugs as they are bad right now! For a full write up and guide to this trail check out my blog: http://www.mylifestyletoyours.com/07/2016/guide-to-fehr-lake-trail/
