We went hiking to Fehr Lake and another lake a little further in..It is so beautiful when you get into wilderness like that...the hike was just enough to where you got enough exercise but not too extreme... We love taking a ride on the motorcycle up here.. We stopped at Mirror Lake and walked around it...We stopped at Provo River... More

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.

Hiked to the top of Kings Peak, starting at the Henry Fork Trailhead. 30 miles roundtrip, totally worn out, but well worth the effort! Amazing scenery, and peaceful (if you ignore the Boy Scouts) surroundings!

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. Even if you take the 1hr 30min drive from Salt Lake City to Mirror lake, Trail lake, Moosehead lake, or Butterfly lake(all within minutes of each other) you will see vast... More
