Excellent 5.75 hiking loop that connects to muliple lakes. The elevation is around 10,500. Beautiful scenery. The hiking trail is moderately difficult. The route is short enough for day hikes. I did backpacked in with children and first time backpackers due to the short route. The experience was great for experienced backpackers as well.

The Uintas are unique in lots of ways. I have been in many mountain ranges and few have supplied the remoteness and break from civilization as the Uintas have.
