Description

Stillwater Fork Trail is a broad, fairly level trail which is generally in good condition (except for a few large mudholes). It rises gently through meadows of grass and wildflowers as well as stands of lodgepole pine. From the first trail junction you will have a moderate climb over a well marked trail until you get up into the more level terrain in the upper Basin. A hike through these upper meadows and to Ryder and McPheters Lakes offers some beautiful vistas of craggy peaks and classic alpine scenery. Ryder and McPheters Lakes cover about 25 acres each and are located in glacial cirques with the Uinta Crest right above and to the south.
