Good trail experience. Nothing radical, easy to find and navigate, very scenic. To Long Lake and back is easy. On to Island and back via the Duck Lake loop is worth while. A short, easy, and scenic hike is found at the same trailhead to Wall Lake (the Forest Service map shows its location incorrectly). Summer weekends can find lots of people and a crowded trailhead.
This was a great hike. I hiked it once with my organization (Utah Rivers Council) and I went up a second time with my girlfriend. Great scenary and wildlife. Very pristine and natural except Margerie Lake, the damn is awful looking, stay on the east side of the Lake. The map and info from trails.com was right on and very helpful. I will definately use it again. My only suggestion is to take the heber exit off I-80, turn left at center of Kamas, and right on 150(Mirror Lake Highway). Its a bit shorter of a drive coming from Salt Lake
