First to Review

Did this trail this past weekend. There are definitely parts marked on the route map that isn’t a real trail. We bushwhacked from lower red castle to the East lake. Stayed the night by Smith Lake, which was beautiful. I do not recommend this maps trail from the saddle of King’s to gunshot pass. It’s all a scramble and very sketch. We took the uinta high line trail at this point and it was smooth sailing. I also recommend double backing towards red castle. We explored big meadow trail, which ended up only being a horse trail—not fun after backpacking 35 miles. Great trail, pack lots of water and be mindful of the altitude.
