Great trail! You can end up driving the first half of it until you hit Pass Creek then you need to get out and walk; unless you are in a 4-wheeler. Remember that you are only a ridge away from Red Canyon so the snakes are out.

7/5/19 We made this trail a loop with Sheep Bridge to the lakes and came out using the Stough trail. It was a good 3 day 2 night trip with amazing views. I would definitely recommend Sheep to Stough due to the elevation gain differences. Very pretty and a ton of solitude!

An amazing hike especially if you can catch it when your groups aren't there.

Great hike. Was fogged in nearly all the early part up the switchbacks and then cleared off as we came over the top. Beautiful area.

The historic site is a significant site along the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails. The drive to the site is gorgeous and remote. The drive alone is worth the visit. The trail, other than the markers is a simple walk along the creek and high plains. The primitive camping was nice and a bonus with the toilets. I actually stumbled upon this trail taking backroads enroute to Salt Lake.

With some minimal corridor maintenance and if your prepared for the bugs easily a five star hike

fishing
Tue Jul 25 2017

Me and few of my friends went here for a big, week long, summer fishing trip and I was very pleased with the beauty of the area. The hike in is easy at first, slight incline and very beautiful, but as you keep going you start to go up a canyon and it becomes quite a hard hike especially if you are backpacking it. Then the glorious pass comes marking the end of your steep climb with a killer view. After that its a bit up and down with another steep part to the first lake but once you see the view into the basin its all worth it. The fishing was really good, got lots of bites and fish they are all just very small and not much to eat. After a couple of days of fishing we hiked to the ridge which was a stunning view at about 11,800 feet. We got a constant storm every day at around 5 pm so watch out for those. wonderful area, lots of views and lakes and nice pine smells.

Moderately difficult hike up to the first lake, plan on a short river crossing within the first mile. Beautiful meadows and views of nearby snow capped peaks and year-round glaciers as you advance on the trail. If fishing, don't expect any trophy fish. Plan on abundant 8-14 inch rainbow trout in the lower lakes. Upper lakes are mostly barren, with the best fish found in the large lake with high boulder fields to the south-west of the initial lake. Prepare for heavy mosquitos in the morning and evening with plenty of bug spray and netting. Definitely one of the most scenic areas of the winds I have ever been. Beautiful glacier-carved cliffs and partially frozen lakes made for an incredibly unique week of backpacking.

Hiked this 6 July 2017: Excellent hike to the gap. Some small drifts easily bypassed before the gap. Had a 400% snow year so lots of water and snow! One large snowdrift right before the clearing at the gap. Lots of snow past the gap. Lakes frozen or partially thawed. Insect heaven: need nets or lots of repellent.

great trail! spent 5 nights along the trail with several great day hikes including one to the top of wind river peak at 13192 ft! absolutely beautiful!

Great hike, small river crossing at the start of the trail. You continue up 23 switch backs to a ridge still blow tree line with an amazing view of the winds and descend into the basin.

I combined this trail along with the old High-line trail now the Continental Divide trail for a long loop out from the Boulder Creek Trail-head.
