High Uintas Wilderness Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"As you can see from the list of USGS topographical maps given in this chapter, there’s a lifetime of hiking in the Uinta Mountains. The Forest Service map High Uintas Wilderness is adequate unless you plan to do off-trail hiking.

If you need the detail of USGS 1:24,000 topos, get the free Index to Utah Topographical Map Coverage from the USGS in order to purchase only the maps you need for your trek. You might want to get topos for surrounding national forest lands that are outside of the designated wilderness. This trail guide includes descriptions of Shutte to East Fork Bear River, and Christmas Meadows to Amethyst Lake."

A great trail to "get away" from everyone and everything. You'll see a couple random hikers but thats it. My friends and I stayed over night by two small mountain lakes, caught trout and hiked around the beautiful quite backwoods, exploring different lakes and streams from our basecamp. That night we slept under the stars, got a little buggy, but that was fine. Overall a nice hike and get you worked, but well worth it.
