Made it out in mid June it was really nice, hike takes you along the Duchesne for a majority of the time so there’s almost always fresh water available

Place sucks don’t go

Did this hike on 4th of July Weekend 2017. The first 4 miles follows the Uintah River and is beautiful. Tons of trees, few good fishing spots, very nice easy hiking. From Sheep's Bridge you start switchbacks for 4-5 miles. They suck. You feel like you'll never get out. After that you'll cross Krebs Creek. From there I think it's only another 2 miles to the Lower Chain lake. We camped here for 2 days, did lots of fishing and exploring. The hike in took us 7 hours, back took us 4. We'll be going back this year to go all the way to King's. Should be fun

Took 6 kids (12-18 yrs) and myself into Crow Canyon mid August. The trial is at points hard to find at the beginning. Once you get to Adams Park (meadow) the trial ends. The rest of the way into this canyon is off trial and since there is a lot of downed dead trees was quite difficult. Once we got to the first lake DG-1 (no fish) we were very tiered and ready to be done. :) We finally made it to Crow Lake and made base camp there. The fishing was way better than expected. Over the 4 days in there we caught 43 fish between the 7 of us. We had a blast while fishing and exploring. I would only recommend this to those that have a GPS and are experienced backpackers.

Trail is fairly technical. Wet, rocky, mud and swamp like terrain almost the entire way. Waterproof shoes are a must! Plenty of water along the way. Never found the turnoff to make the loop as it wasn't marked well. We made our way up towards Cleveland lake where there was a fork in the trail with a sign then cut over to Queant lake. GPS clocked it right at about 4.5 miles one way. There are 3-4 nice camp sites along the southern end of the lake.

Hiked this quite a few years ago as part of a loop over Tworoose and Clevland Passes. Beautiful basin and great views

Stayed Atwood Lake the last day of a 6 day loop that went up to Fox Lake then west towards Kings Peak climbing Trail Ryder pass to Lake Atwood. Its a beautiful basin with several other lakes nearby. Atwood is the largest of the lakes in the area and. Back in 1977 it was one of the few lakes in the Uinta that had golden trout. Don't know if the goldens still exist because they don't complete well with other fish. Caught a 2 lb Brook Trout in the lake so it wouldn't surprise me there were very many goldens left after all these years.

Finished hiking on this section on the third day of a loop hike. Started at Rock Lakes in Squaw Basin and was planning on camping near the river on this trail but never got close enough to the river to camp until the inlet of Moon Lake which made for a long day. At least most of it was downhill
