A rigorous overnighter to three lakes in the upper Weber River drainage in the western Uinta Mountains. Good fly fishing for grayling and brook trout. These lakes are for well-conditioned trekkers seeking good high-country fishing, particularly for the beautiful Arctic grayling. The trailhead is less than two hours from Salt Lake City, including several miles over improved dirt road suitable for passenger cars. The Dry Fork Trail begins at 8,000 feet and climbs through a rocky fir forest, ending below timberline in a broad, U-shaped basin boasting many small ponds and lakes. Round Lake sits just below 10,000 feet; Sand and Fish Lakes are about 200 feet higher. Fish Lake is about 4.5 miles from the trailhead. T
