West Fork Blacks Fork Professional Review and Guide

"An overnighter to the headwaters of the Blacks Fork River. There are lush alpine meadows, good fishing, and excellent opportunities to view wildlife. Golden eagles are a common sight. The West Fork Blacks Fork River is a superb journey into the northwestern portion of the High Uintas Wilderness.

This drainage is replete with moose, mule deer, elk, small mammals, and raptors. The hike offers level traversing of lush meadowlands, a survey of rich wildlife habitat, and an ascent into the alpine lakes and ponds for which the Uintas are famous. This is the High Uintas at its finest."
