This is the perfect hike for the beginner backpacker, or for someone that really wants to get a quick taste of the Uintas, without spending days doing strenuous hikes.
The trailhead starts at the Crystal Lake Trailhead, but you will very quickly leave this trail. You'll come upon a sign for "Cliff Lake", turn right here toward Cliff Lake. From here, you go through several series of flat meadows, separated by fairly steep, but very brief, climbs to gain 50-100 feet elevation. In each series, you get a new lake, new meadow, and new views. All the while, Mt. Watson is dominating the view to the West.
There are several short hikes you can do once you set up camp there. We also did a quick hike out to "The Notch", and several other lakes in the surrounding area.
You'll have plenty of water at your fingertips for this one, just like all the others in the area. Don't leave the dog at home either, because they'll absolutely love this area!

We love to backpack in and camp here. Been doing it for years. We've seen mountain goats near our camp in the last few years.

Couple of small lakes between Wall Lakes and the North. Last time I was on the trail we saw a herd of bighorn sheep at the Notch.
