East of the Wasatch, on the Wyoming and Utah border, are the Uinta Mountains. These mountains are an often overlooked jewel in Utah. Trailheads are generally high, meaning quick and easy access into the high country. Trails often also have relatively gradual ascents, at least when compared to Wasatch Front trails. Though trails near the main paved roads, such as Mirror Lake Highway, tend to be busy in the summer, once a few miles from pavement the crowds ease substantially. The range is home to Kings Peak , Utah's highest point as well as many 12,000+ peaks. This is a great place to backpack in, spend a few days at a lake, and bag some peaks nearby.
Dispersed camping is easy in the Uinta Mountains as long as you are off the main highways. Many campgrounds are also great for camping, but those near the Mirror Lake Highway can fill up early and be difficult to find a spot at. In dispersed camping, please do not create new fire rings or spots. There are plenty of spots already available with a little looking around.
