Overview

Amazingly remote run/trek that takes adventurers through the heart of the High Uinta Wilderness. Amazing views, peak climbing opportunities, wildlife, fishing, lakes - this one has it all! Begin at the Leidy Peak TH (or for a shorter route begin at Chepeta Lake TH). Follow the 025 Highline Trail as it weaves over passes and aside lakes - often following dispersed cairns across meadows, tundra and talus slopes.
