From Oakley, head east on the Weber River Road. Follow it about 11 miles until the pavement ends. The road forks there, and the main road swings to the right (south) toward Smith-Morehouse Reservoir. Don't go that way. Stay on the dirt road that goes east, which will end at Holiday Park. The trail starts at the Dry Fork Trailhead.

I’ve heard about this hike for many years from my grandpa so my rating is a little bias. As this was the first back packing trip in years for most of my group the hike was rough for the last mile but was well worth it. We camped at Round lake but made it to all three for fishing. Fishing was hottest at Sand lake but we caught fish at all three. Just be ready for quick weather change. Our 0% chance of rain turned in to frequent showers and hail. All in all it was a blast. We will be doing this again.

We went at the beginning of August. Round lake was beautiful and fishing was great! Sand lake was beautiful and fishing was great but the fish were were smaller than at Round. Fish Lake was very disappointing. The water was extremely low, rocks and dead trees everywhere. We intended to camp 2 nights at Fish but ended up going back to Sand lake for our camp site. The hike was beautiful but very rocky. Seemed like rock jumping for much of the time. Weather was fantastic!

Beautiful quiet place. Hiked in on Saturday morning end of June. Full blue skies and average temp was 80 degrees. Scenery is beautiful the entire way up - aspen groves, wildflower meadows, alpine cliffs. When we got to Fish lake there was one other person. Made for a very peaceful backpacking trip. Last mile and a half to Round lake is pretty steep. Saw some elk and deer near Round lake.

We just got off the trail today. Ton of downed trees blocking the trail in places. This trail is rated moderate and I agree with it. It's deceiving because you alway think you have reached the top but disappointed that you still have a ways to go. Just FYI, the mileage that is posted with this trail is for round lake. If you are going to Fish Lake it is 4.5 miles. All the fish in the lake were so small that we had very poor luck. We were using spinners which was obviously a bad choice for these lakes. Dry fly fishing in the morning and evening would have been a much better choice.

We went on the trail late June and it was quite wet, with most the trail being a water flow. It was however a beautiful hike and worth it. Bring snacks, we forgot ours.
