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

An excellent destination for those seeking solitude. We found few traces of human visitors in the basin and experienced fantastic fishing.

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.

Tough trail. Beautiful country, make sure you carry plenty of bug spray. The trail was tough to find at 3 different locations.

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

Loved it.
I thought East Basin Pass would be more trouble than it was. On the (google) map it goes through a boulder field. Truth is the Pass is further to the east and routes up through some trees or down depending on direction of travel.
Clement's Pass is amazing with the pond at the top and huge alpine meadows. There is a short cut in Squaw Basis, check the National Geographic map of the High Uinta's for more info. This will shave a mile or so, more importantly it will save elevation loss/gain.
Don't for get the fishing gear. The East Basin lakes look lonely.
Please remember to keep Leave No Trace principles in mind and limit campfire use or keep 'em really small to preserve the solitude of the region

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

Tried to take a short cut to Painter Lake from the Atwood Basin and over the ridge to the lakes. Was difficult but rewarding views of both basins. Returned back to the trailhead the longer but much easier Painter Lakes Trail.
