Good trail to run

Did this as a loop hike over the course of 3 days. Rough outline was: Trailhead, Dad's Lake, Barren Lake, Texas Pass into the Cirque, out over Jackass Pass back to trailhead. Surprised at the lack of mosquitoes in early August. AMAZING hike, but Texas Pass is not for the faint of heart. The only other hard part was picking our way down the boulders into the Cirque.

Highly recommend a bit of training before this trip, but the views are so incredibly worth it.

Backpacked into crow creek lakes, set up camp and caught a couple fish for supper. Next day we day hiked up to mount fitz and enjoyed the amazing views. Returned to camp. Then hiked out the following morning. On our second trip here, we did a day hike to the south crow creek waterfall which is inside a small cave. Contact us for details of how to find it.

I wish I had done this hike on a clear day. The view of the Tetons would have been amazing. Regardless, this was a really fun trail. It is a great work out and is clearly defined.
I made a Gopro video of my hike if you are interested in seeing the fall/snowy scenery. https://youtu.be/4_ojs_Y8gGg

This lake is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. The hike is very difficult if you’re backpacking. Hope to come back one day

Went in July. Snowpack was very light and the views were amazing!

This was our first trail hike when we arrived in WY! It did NOT disappoint. Great scenery and easy terrain for the entire family and the dog! GORGEOUS views!

We thought this trail was a great hike! It was a bit cool, hiking in snow the last 1/2 mile, but beautiful!

Very pretty, we had the whole trail to ourselves. Lots of squirrels and chickens to amuse my dog. Road is pretty washed out. My car is 4 wheel drive and struggled through the mud in a couple places. Nothing a lil sheer masculinity and a tight wheel grip couldn't get us through.

Have been down this trail many times in my life. love the view from look out point.

We completed this as a day hike. It is very flat to the lake the whole way. We had to double check we were at the correct lake because we completed it so quickly. Beautiful streams and forest along the way. I made a video of the hike if anyone is interested: https://practicalvagabonds.com/big-sandy-lake-wyoming/

Been up and down this trail 7 or 8 times over the years. Photographers point is always a great rest stop.

easy hike until the last 5 miles. It gets steep. We did a loop from the trail head to Ethel,Vera, Macs Lake, to blueberry lake. We ran into a bear down in Boulder Canyon, but did not see any elk or moose. took us three days to complete

Beautiful hike. Uphill all the way to the falls but not extremely strenuous. Falls we’re really low (mid September) but I still went off the slide and we had a blast! Water was so cold but the slide is a must-do. A little scarier than I was expecting but worth it. There were maybe 4-5 groups of people who came and went while we were there. Sunbathed on the big rocks after going down the slide. Beautiful and peaceful little spot!

Stunning views all the way south into Colorado from the top of the peak. Start at a time where you know you will be able to get all the way up and started back down before noon. Storms pop up in a few minutes at this altitude.

Narrow drive along river to trailhead was hard to manage when meeting car coming in opposite direction. Nice walk along river. Popular trail with lots of campers and hikers for late September. Glad we looked up to see neat "hole" rock formation near trailhead on walk back.

Great day for a hike. trail is kept in good shape. Beautiful area.

The Canyon Trail is a very easy trail wnd the constant view if the river makes it very beautiful. It one of my favorite trails in the Bighorns.

Personally Island lake is way better than any hike in the wind river area. Its easy, theres a ton to do, and the views are breath taking. I brought a rod and fished part of the day and hooked up with some cutthroats.

One of the prettiest places I've ever been. fairly easy hike with some steep areas, but nothing to be afraid of. When I went their were tons of mosquitos. The fishing is good if you have the patience for them. overall, I would recommend this as one of the best places to go in the US.

Absolutely beautiful

So many gorgeous lakes and rugged mountain peaks, making these climbs absolutely worth it. Awesome great dispersed camping all the way up to Lonesome Lake.

Great Labor Day hike; tons of friendly people!

Great hike! 2 hours tops including our time hanging out at the lake. Start early as it gets warm! My dog and I encountered a huge moose on the trail, so be cautious, as usual. Plenty of creeks for the pups and there was barely anyone else out there.

Hiked clockwise with my 2 boys (13/16). We went 3-4 miles the first day and finished the remainder of the hike the next (setup tent at campground).

Gorgeous views/lakes first half of hike. Second half was a bit more lack-luster, but the valley's and peaceful nature was hard not to enjoy.

My boys enjoyed the large rocks and lakes. We saw a deer, but that was it. Hoping for more wildlife...and possibly a little more rugged terrain. Overall, nice hike. Moderately trafficked. (...but it was Labor Day weekend - open day of bow hunting.)

This hiking is so amazing, it really challenged me as a hiker. I recommend doing the trail in late spring/ early summer. I went and saw almost no one else on the trail. You will probably see some snow at the beginning of the trail if you go during late spring / early summer but it will dissipate quickly. Also be advised you are hiking downhill during the whole hike and then uphill on the return. So, mentally prepare yourself for that. The trail head says the hike only a few miles but it really is the full 7. The sign is incorrect.
