From Pinedale, drive south on Hwy 191. At Boulder, turn left on Hwy 353 and drive 18 miles to the end of the pavement. Shorty after the pavement ends, go straight through the junction, and drive south crossing the Big Sandy River (Buckskin Crossing). At next junction, turn left (east) and drive 7 miles. Turn left at the following jct and follow the main road to the Big Sandy Campground and trailhead. This trailhead is remote, so be sure to have a full tank of gas.

Loved this trail! We took about 10 llamas, 5 people and 2 dogs with us and it was an incredible getaway. The trail is pretty easy (made easier with pack animals to carry our heavy stuff) and the views were incredible. The icy refreshing lake made for a great reward after about 2 days in. Perfect for a 5 day trip.

Easy well maintained trail that rises and climbs through 5 drainage's passing multiple lakes. As you get to the washakie creek area you can view the north size of the cirque of the towers. I rate the trail as moderate difficulty only because of the altitude. The lake is at timberline but has a few pockets of trees that provide some shelter from wind.
