Great trail. To the far side of the lake, where all the camping spots are, it’s more like 5.5 miles. Far side of the lake has a bunch of leaches but the side of the lake by the rope swing it’s clear and great. Rope swing holds up well and is safe. Wild huckleberries and okay fishing middle of August makes for a great trip. Highly Recommend.

We went the weekend of the 24th of July. Great hike. Pretty good shade cover for the majority. First part of the trail is just a steady increase in elevation and then it gets more challenging as you get closer to the lake. There was a family reunion and there were lots of people this weekend so it was hard to find a place to set up camp so be aware of that. Saw some deer and some traces of elk. The lake was a very good temperature and we even were able to play in it until after dark and we didn’t get cold. As you’re hiking around the lake the trail goes right through a mud hole so watch for it (maybe bring sandals or something similar to hike through the mud). Want to come back a different weekend when there’s less people.

Beautiful trail but got lost a few times. Bring some type of GPS trail map to help you find the trail in a few spots where it is unclear. Also, at Stump Lake intersection, signage is very misleading. Did 9 miles the first day, found a great camp site off trail, and then did 11 miles the next day. Plan on bringing all of your water. We did find water at about mile 5 in mid-July but I wouldn’t count on it during a drier year. Beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

Took horses on this trail. Very easy even if you’re hiking. Beautiful scenery and great fishing. Camped in the far side of the lake. Wildlife is very active. Saw 2 Bald Eagles, A Great Grey Owl, Beavers, a lot of deer, and an Elk.

Not a soul on the trail. Very peaceful bubbling brook, meandering creek. Lake super pretty. Did not see (make it) to the camp site, turned around at 5 miles. Fall in Wyoming cannot be beat!

Backpacked in and spent the night on the far side of the lake. Great fishing. Was with 3 others and caught a collective 20+ nice sized cutthroat and one Brooke trout. Nice rope swing if you are the adventurous type! Trail was rather rough due to horses using the trail when it was wet. Overall an enjoyable trip.

Enjoyable trail, first ~1.5 mi is fairly steep/wooded but clears up when you reach the ridge and are even/above tree line. Great views of surrounding mountains and saw medium wildlife throughout (no bears). Our dogs were able to do it no problem just no water along way besides some small unreliable creeks that were running slowly. Overall good trail, worth the 8 mi drive from Alpine for scenic views. Enjoy!

This is a great, and well defined, backcountry trail. I would recommend pepper spray as Grizzlies have been seen in the area. It is actually 8 miles out of Alpine, Wyo, and not Grover.

Backpacked in to Bailey Lake and camped for two nights. Trail head is found by traveling from Alpine WY up the Greys River Road to the Little Greys turn off. Travel to McCain Meadow and then to the trail head which is just prior to waterdog lake where the road ends. Saw deer, moose (early am, and during the night), eagle, osprey, ducks and ducklings, muskrat, and many wild flowers. Caught fish for lunch which always beats packed in foods!
