The Uinta Highline Trail (UHT) is a remote and scenic path through the high country of the Uinta Mountains. Part of the attractiveness of the 104-mile UHT is its more primitive nature as compared to many other distance trails in America. This trail is best suited for backpackers and equestrians who enjoy solitude, exercising navigation skills, and high-elevation scenery. In places, the trail lacks tread and is merely a route marked with occasional cairns, posts, or signs. Passing through a beautiful mosaic of forests, subalpine meadows, tundra, and rocky alpine passes, the trail's average elevation is 10,700 feet. Over half the trail's length is within the High Uintas Wilderness.
