Overview

This amazingly remote run takes adventurers through the heart of the High Uinta Wilderness. There are amazing views, peak climbing opportunities, wildlife, fishing, lakes—this one has it all! Begin at the Leidy Peak Trailhead (or for a shorter route begin at Chepeta Lake Trailhead). Follow the Highline Trail as it weaves over passes and aside lakes, often following dispersed cairns across meadows, tundra, and talus slopes.
