Beautiful trail but got lost a few times. Bring some type of GPS trail map to help you find the trail in a few spots where it is unclear. Also, at Stump Lake intersection, signage is very misleading. Did 9 miles the first day, found a great camp site off trail, and then did 11 miles the next day. Plan on bringing all of your water. We did find water at about mile 5 in mid-July but I wouldn’t count on it during a drier year. Beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

Enjoyable trail, first ~1.5 mi is fairly steep/wooded but clears up when you reach the ridge and are even/above tree line. Great views of surrounding mountains and saw medium wildlife throughout (no bears). Our dogs were able to do it no problem just no water along way besides some small unreliable creeks that were running slowly. Overall good trail, worth the 8 mi drive from Alpine for scenic views. Enjoy!

This is a great, and well defined, backcountry trail. I would recommend pepper spray as Grizzlies have been seen in the area. It is actually 8 miles out of Alpine, Wyo, and not Grover.
