Just finished hike to Blue Lake. Round trip it’s 12.8 miles not the 11.9 in the description. To Morat lake that distance would be about right. Despite length, this is a relatively easy hike other than the short but steep ascent to each of the lakes. First mile is downhill. A fun hike with a good pay off.

Beautiful hike/backpack along the Highline Trail and into Naturalist Basin in the High Uintas Wilderness. We spent two nights in Naturalist Basin with time to explore. Plenty of water available for filtering. Highly recommend avoiding the weekends. We arrived on a Thursday and left Saturday morning and saw very few people. On Saturday morning, people started arriving in the Basin by 10:00 am and the Highline Trail was BUSY! It was the weekend after the Fourth of July and hot hot hot in the Salt Lake Valley so that may explain part of it. Gorgeous flowers, lakes, views and mountains.

Nice trail that takes you into southwestern part of the Naturalist basin with a couple of lakes, one of which is above timberline. Saw a beaver in Morat Lake
