Go clockwise. The Yellowstone side is more gradual, prettier, and has water. The trail maps aren’t very accurate. It was closer to 28 miles.

This trail will test you from the get go and does so all the way to Deer Lake. From Deer Lake it's pretty easy going to Farmers Lake. Stayed my final night at White Miller Lake. Damn good campsite there!

Well the trail was difficult. but the Lakes were great. Definitely take big spray. I never got bit, but if they attack your be bloodless in seconds. The lake was gorgeous. I'd definitely recommend taking the hike in in two days. Getting out can be done in one (for me, it was 9 hours getting in 4.5 hours getting out). Early July was really nice, only cold at like 6 am, the rest of the time was perfect. Outside of the steep terrain, it was great!

Great for solitude. Full trip report here including my trail map to Farmer's Lake. http://www.girlonahike.com/2017/07/backpacking-to-farmers-lake-uintas.html

Great fishing! The trail is not very obvious for the last 2 miles. Having this app was very helpful.

i did this trail in july 2016 with 4 freinds. we did about 17 miles in and out. the fishing was amazing. small fish in deer lake and huge trout in farmers lake. we stayed 3 nights 4 days.

I only know this trail from Five Point Lake to the trail-head. This was the last leg of the 4 day loop that started going the the Timothy Lakes Basin, Then to Northstar/Tungston Lakes area then to Five Point Lake. Hiking down was fast and easy because the trail was so good. This was 30 years ago so I don't know if the trail has changed since then. There are many short day hikes to quite a few lakes in the area so spend some time exploring the many lakes.

I started at the Swift Creek trail-head and spent the first night in the Timothy Lakes Basin so I missed a short portion of this trail to Farmers Lake since the trail forks. I hit the trail before the sun came up and stopped at Farmers Lake for breakfast and to enjoy the sunrise, Listened to the birds chirping and loving the solitude. Very beautiful area just south of Kings Peak
