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.

Cool trail that gives you a good view of a lot of the lakes and ponds on the mirror lake highway. Can get pretty hot so bring lots of water!

Do not go until later in the season end of June is too early. We managed to get to the summit today but the trail disappears into snow at the start, along the ridge line, and multiple times throughout the trail. If you have crampons or micro spikes and don't mind the adventure of going off the beaten trail and potentially scaling random 70 degree rock faces then go for it the views are amazing. The snow was beautiful in the distance though and you may see some Billy goats we even saw a baby goat nursing. It was fantastic!

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.
