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.
