Report: Travelled with llamas to Pole Creek lakes. Moderate trail, well maintained. Heavy stock and backpacker use. Many climbers also use the first part of this trail, then turn toward the Titicomb basin. This is not the route for the person seeking solitude.
Water Availability: The Wind River range was in serious drought in 2001. All water levels were low. Stream crossings were easy, but find good, tasty, potable water was challenging at some points along the trail.
