"Several short two-day hikes or a longer five-day trip in the High Uintas. Cirques and massive peaks ring the upper basins, and there is good fishing on Stillwater Fork. The Stillwater drainage of the Bear River offers three destinations: West Basin, with Kermsuh Lake; Middle Basin, with McPheters and Ryder Lakes; and Amethyst Basin, containing Amethyst and Ostler Lakes. Each has incredibly beautiful alpine scenery of high rock walls, pockets of spruce, scattered ponds, and wet meadows. Good fishing exists throughout the three basins, and water is abundant."

Trail is really well maintained and easy as long as you stay in valley. WE went into Amethyst Lake Basin. The trail gets steep for about 1 mile. Beautiful basin, lots of lakes and pretty good fishing.
