I'm gonna take my daughters (5yo and 7yo) to do a loop out of Big Sandy TH in Wind River Range in mid-Aug, thanks to the school closure... We are pretty flexible and plan to spend 5 days on this loop: Big Sandy TH - Dads Lake - Shadow Lake - Lonesome Lake - Big Sandy Lake - TH, either clockwise or counter-clockwise, depending on the weather condition (to get better view at Lonesome Lake).
It's their first backpacking trip out of CA, but they have done more than a dozen backpacking trips with me in the past 2.5 years in Sierra, and are well adapted to different terrain including some off-trail exploration. 4-8 miles a day on the trail is normal to both girls if the elevation gain/terrain is not too tough.
Is there a place like HST to look up information of Wind River Range? I don't see much difficulty on this well-traveled loop but would like to see if there is additional advice or places to visit along the loop. I also want to see if there is any recommendation on fishing along the loop (or nearby).
