This is a good trail! There is a lot rocks, so make sure you have something with good ankle support. The upper creeks are blown out due to snow melt, so the crossing are a bit sketchy. Overall a very good hike that gives you a good workout!

Awesome and stunning trail alongside the Green River starting immediately south of the Flaming Gorge Dam. Be aware there are multiple wading opportunities right now due to high water. Missing pieces of walkway and trail along the way so you will get wet right now. Needs some trail work , but it is So worth some wet boots. Friendly rafters and fisherman along the way to have fun with! Also note: the first and last .5 mile is all the elevation loss and gain.

It's rated as hard, but actually more moderate. Mostly level walking with slight inclines. Path can be a little rocky, but mostly a nice dirt path. The sights are amazing, definitely worth it. And you can tailor the hike to the distance you'd like. We didn't do the whole thing but tied it into the Greens Lake Trail. Beautiful scenery.

I love Tepee Lake !!! The hike isn't that bad .I am out of shape and I made it. I caught some great Brooke trout . I hiked in June. Great time !!! The trail is a bit rough to follow in spots .

I lived in Dutch John when I was a teenager so this trail will always be amazing to me. Great scenery, snooty fish and fishermen in various moods. And many people in rafts.

I was not too impressed. i was trying to do an overnighter up to red lake. I made it to Teepee Lake with no problem and decided to push on to Red Lake. About a mile past Teepee the trail just disappears. Camped out in the only suitable spot I could find, glad I had a bivy. From about Teepee to where ever I made it to the mosquitoes were ridiculous and I probably now have Zika virus. If you are looking just to get away from people I recommend. If you are looking for cool views situated alongside high mountain lakes don't waste your time. Although I never made it to Red Lake so who knows. Good Luck.

I've camped and water-skied a couple of different times at Flaming Gorge. It's a nice area for camping and boating.

I have hiked this trail to Tamarack and Jessen many times. It's quite easy just to those lakes. 2013 I hiked this trail to Burnt Forks Lake, it was pretty easy until the pass at the end of Tamarack Lake, it's tough. from there its pretty easy to Fish Lake. Climbing from Fish Lake to Burnt Fork is medium.

Did this one back in 1967. Then the trail was hard to follow and we spent a lot of time of trail. Wonderful country though. Hopefully, the trail is much improved.

I have both hiked and floated this trail from Flaming Gorge Dam to Little Hole. Wonderful trip either way. Great trout fishing on a premier fly fishing stream.
