This nearly 12,000 peak of the most popular hikes in the Uinta Mountains of Utah At nearly 12,000 feet but under a mile and half to the summit this mountain is a great start for beginners. The trail is easy to follow and the views towards the many surrounding alpine lakes is spectacular. Bring a camera.

A far drive if you live in Salt Lake but a gorgeous one once you get into the Uintas. This was a rocky but pretty easy hike, what made it hard was the elevation. The view around all side are stunning.y dog was able to do it and I highly recommend this.

This is short enough that the elevation gain and altitude aren't a huge factor. Do you love the Uinta Mountains and are looking for some truly unique views? Look no further and get climbing! I normally use trekking poles but didn't the day I climbed this, and was not disappointed to have left them behind. Rocky, but just watch your step and keep moving, you'll be there in no time. Enjoyed the summit for 15-20 minutes solo before making a quick exit to beat an incoming rainstorm. Will be doing this one again, without a doubt.

Amazing view at the top. It's a relatively short hike, approximately 1 1/2 HR each way, but lots of rocks you need to maneuver over that gets your heart rate up. We ran into mountain goats which was really neat. There's a 30ft section that's a bit harry if your scared of heights. All n all a great hike. Bring a jacket.

Tons of fun. Plenty of wildlife -- saw deer and sheep right by the trailhead. Beautiful views all the way up and even more spectacular at the top. Mostly a moderate hike, though the altitude can make it pretty exhausting at times. Brought my small stubby-legged dog and he loved it. He only needed assistance for a couple of the larger rocks.

Highly recommended and one of the easier ways to reach such a high peak.

Beautiful mountain, but be aware of snow conditions in early season. I went in late May & the trailhead was still snowed over. Trail was not discernable & summit ridge had cornices the entire length.

I would be interested to see a report from a winter summit

this may be only a 2.6 mile out and back trail but it packs in a exilerating work out. Between the large rock steps and elevation change you may looking for a breath at almost 12,000 feet.

Fantastic views of the surrounding lakes. Nice moderate hike but the altitude makes it just a little more difficult.

Weather can change quickly. Can be very windy.
Route is pretty clear. Not too hard. Greatly rewarded by the view in the end. Worthwhile effort!

Hiking doesn't get much better than this. Short but narrow and steep in places. Stunning views at the top. Bring a jacket, windy at the top. Loved it!

The views were spectacular you can see everything from the top. Also saw a lot of mountain goats which was cool. But it was very cold and windy at the top and was about 4 miles long. Still some snow and temps at 40 or 50 at the top even in July.
