Henry's Fork Lake 9-1-87

I did King's peak and then went back via this trail, or at least I intended to. Heading north at Henry's Fork Lake the trail diverges with no sign, one path being Henry's Fork Lake trail going northeast, the other goes north along the shoreline and then remains mostly in the valley where the eastern side is almost always visible. I took the latter absent mindedly and never saw the western lakes, Bear, Sawmill, etc.

This would not likely happen to someone going north to south as the trail has a post for Bear lake where it diverges from Dollar lake.

Alligator lake is not visible from the trail.

Backpacked up to Henry's Fork Lake for an overnight-er. The trail was mild, good for carrying a pack. Plenty of water available, as most of the trail is near the river or has stream crossings. The first 4.5 miles to the trail fork is through forest, then the view opens up to red peaks and cliffs. We hiked past Bear Lake, which looked like a nice place to camp. The view around Henry's Lake was worth it though. Saw 4 moose in the 2 days, so keep your eyes peeled. Total distance to the lake and back was 18.8 miles and took roughly 6-7 hrs each way (I'm a slow-medium speed hiker).

Hiked to Bear lake for the night then up to Henry's Fork Lake, Doll Lake and back to the trails. Was able to see Kings Peak. Beautiful Basin. This trail and Henry's Fork Lake is slightly less used than Dollar Lake which is the main access to Kings Peak. The lakes in the upper basin are reported to have large fish.
