Additional Details:
This is a little used trail with Bobs Lake and other small lakes at the head of the drainage. Good campsites and a little bit of fishing pressure the full length along the Middle Fork Creek. The upper Basin lies at the base of Tokawanna Peak. A climb to the peak from here is over open grassy terrain and tundra to the top at 13,165 feet. The Middle Fork Drainage is a low use area, both among horse groups and hikers. Its trail at the present time is in a primitive condition; the old system of blaze marks on the trees still remains: one large slash mark. People traveling into this area should have a good map of the area due to the difficulty locating the trail at times. The trail crosses the creek a few times, and the crossings do not have good access across them. The area, however, has remains of many old cabins along the way. The area also provides easy access to high peaks to climb and small lakes to visit. There is also a wide variety of wildlife to see: deer, elk, hawks, and, occasionally, coyotes.
Basic Directions
Roughly 52 miles northeast out of Kamas on Highway 150 (two miles north of the Bear River Ranger Station), turn east onto the North Slope Road (follow sign directing you to the Blacks Fork River). Travel about 16 miles along this road over Elizabeth Pass Campground road. Take a right turn and proceed to the next junction. Take a left turn, (following the sign directing you to East Fork Blacks Fork), drive two miles to its junction with the East Fork Blacks Fork Road. Turn right and follow the road one quarter mile (over a bridge), then stop at a dirt road leading off to your right, blocked by a wire gate (if gate is closed please close it after you enter), 2 miles up this road it ends and the trail begins. (This road is recommended for 4 wheel drive vehicles only).
