The hike was amazingly beautiful but as well was pretty stressful on our knees. We started from Henry Fork Trailhead at 6:45pm Friday and didn't make it to Dollar Lake in time for dark. We ended up doing the trip in a day and a half and about killed oursevles. I recommend at least 2-3 days to enjoy the hike. At the top of Gunsight Pass there's a faster route up the side of the mountain on the right(west) that has rock cairns marking it. It really saves time rather than dropping back into the next valley and climbing back up again. I love Utah mountains! This is an amazing hike but beware of lightning. Best of luck to you.
