Description

A short spur trail off of the Highline Trail, providing access to three small lakes: Wilder, Wyman and Packard. All three lakes are surrounded by old growth forest. Packard Lake sits on the edge of the Duchesne River breaks, and the view down the river is breathtaking. The lakes are all planted with fish, but fishing success is usually only fair to poor. The shorelines of these small lakes have suffered from overuse in the past.

Additional Details:
Trail is easy to follow to Wilder and Wyman Lakes and a bit harder to find between Wyman and Packard. The trail receives moderate to heavy use during weekends in July and August. Please help protect the shorelines by camping back away from the lakes in the forest. If you have a fire, use an existing fire ring.
