The trail from Wyman to Packard is not well marked and we had to bush wack the hillside to find it. The trail is blocked a lot with a dead fall trees and is disappearing with a lack of use. This map is not very accurate with the fork from Wyman to Packard. It starts further up the trail by Wyman lake. There is an old wooden sign saying "Trail" and pointing straight along the lake. Turn left right there and start looking along the hillside for the trail. The lakes themselves are rather ordinary but just past them to the south is the Dushesne River Gorge with nice views. Lots of mosquitoes this time of year!

Perfect camp and the bottom of the trail. Little rocky trail, but beautiful.

Rocky trail on the Packard Lake spur. Worth the hike to see the canyon with the West Fork of the Duschene. Fairly steep down the first portion of the spur.

Beautiful trail! Not steep, so it is great for training for longer, steeper backpacking trips. We camped at Packard Lake; the sunset was gorgeous.

Good area to take kids backpacking because the trail is easy and not to terribly long
