My wife and I went on our first backpacking trip to Wall Lake. She is a few months pregnant and the trail was easy for her with a few breaks here and there.

Fun hike! Was fairly easy with a beautiful payoff at the end. So many lakes that can be seen!

It was a great trail for my kids and us to walk. Did explore a lot around the lake and a ton of rocky areas my kids climbed the afternoon away.

Quick easy hike. Caught and released a few Brook trout at Hoover lake.

A hard hike, quick elevation gain with many scrambles! But totally worth the challenge! Very rewarding and we saw goats!!

What a great hike for a beginner backpacker. It’s just enough to challenge you. Just got back today on August 12th.

on Wall Lake

Wall Lake was awesome for swimming. There are some really fun “cliffs” to jump off for our younger kids. The trail was pretty easy as advertised. The only drawback is that there are a lot of people. If you are looking for solitude. This may not be the best hike for you. We will go back!

Hey everyone! First off, this was a beautiful hike! We backpacked in, and it was a great overnight trip. It wasn’t too steep, and the dogs loved it as well.

The parking lot fills up quick! If you don’t get there at 5:00 A.M, you could be looking at an extra mile from where you have to park. (Unless you are a rebel and have no problem getting a ticket for parking where it clearly says you cannot.

There were no signs leaving from Washington Lake. If it wasn’t for the All Trails app, I would have been really confused on where to go. So make sure to open up that little map All Trails has to offer.

iPhone users beware, if you hit the directions option from your all trails app, it WILL lead you to a different parking lot! Open up the actual map all trails provides, click on the little arrow to the bottom left, and actually follow your phones directions to the correct parking to get to the trailhead. And as I said before, there were no signs, it actually says there are two different lakes that you’ll be hiking past.

Great trail with amazing views. For the time and distance, the top is very worth it!

I did this about 3 years ago and there was some snow on the alpine section. This time, of course, no snow, so I was able to see more of what the landscape looks like. I had hoped to escape the smoke, but even the high Uintahs had smoke. A great, short, easy hike with some precarious-looking edges for those of us who are afraid of heights. Too many stupid-looking cairns at the top.

This was my first hike to the summit of a mountain and I agree it is good for a beginner! I would not consider it hard or difficult. Definitely moderate. I only had to pause briefly closer to the top because of the oxygen level I suppose. Some parts were a little steep but much of it was very easy to walk. Hiking sticks are a huge help. Beautiful views at the top!

We loved this saw Provo river falls on the way to the lake then walked the trail around the lake

Great hike with the most stunning views we’ve seen yet. We took our 4, 8, and 10 yr old kids and they did great. Our little guy walked the whole way - loved climbing the rocks. The heights were a little scary toward the top, but well worth the views. Our gps said it was a little over 2 miles to the top and the round trip took us about 3 hours, but we were taking our time with the kids. Highly recommend.

Personally much harder and steeper than I expected for a trail that AllTrails rates as “moderate”. That said, the views from the summit were amazing! Hiking sticks are highly recommended, especially for the way down.

Super casual walk, no incline. A lot of people around paddle boarding and fishing.

This was a great hike for our dog and an ‘Out of Shape’ backpacker (me). We hiked to Fehr, Shepard, and Hoover lakes. We spent time playing around at Hoover and Shepard lakes then hiked back to Fehr lake to camp overnight. Fantastic weekend trip including one of the best lightning storms we had seen in a long time. Fun times!

Good hike great views.

Great hike, not too crowded, hiked pass 16 lakes. That’s cool.

We hiked to Fehr Lake and then to Shepard Lake...or what we thought was Shepard Lake but must have just been a pond now that we have WiFi and cell and can look at the map. LOL! With one of my kids having some stomach troubles, that was really as much as we were able to do anyway. Gorgeous trail with beautiful lakes, views, and wildflowers. We’ll definitely need to go back and to the whole thing when everyone is feeling well!

One of the best hikes in Uinta mounatins! It could be a bit steep but manageable. To anyone who says it’s a really difficult hike, then maybe you should reconsider since a 3yo and 55yo was able to make it or you’ll miss the amazing views up there.

Lots of people but a lot less people than staying at Trial. It's a pretty hike and easy for the kids. Decent fishing too. :)

Great hike. No mosquitoes

This trail is awesome. Four large lakes to see and the first one is less than a mile in. Great for kids and dogs and overnights.

great hike. we hiked into Wall lake and the bushwacked toward Cliff Lake and made it a 3 mile hike. Would be a good hike for children.

Everyone says this is 1.3 to the top but the whole trip was logged in my gps as 5.2 and it definitely took WAY longer than we thought it would to actually summit. We also went slow since we had 2 dogs with us, one of which was smaller, but either we did something wrong or this isn't accurate. Or maybe they only count it as making it to the first piece before the rock scrambling starts. To actually summit, i believe this to be much longer, so just wanted to post this in case it helps others. We never would have brought our little dog if we had known how long it was. But all that being said, the views are beautiful from the top.

Short but steep hike to the top of bald mtn. The views from the top are incredible as you can see 20+ lakes.

loved this hike. not too steep either way, great views of lakes, cliffs and rocks. We just hiked to Ibantic lake and back. the parking lot was overflowing and rude people parked by the no parking signs along the road, which blocked traffic. we parked in the overflow parking about a half mile away with no problem.

Fun, steep trail with spectacular views and rocks! I think we counted 26 lakes/ponds that were visible from the top.
