HIKING TO NOTCH MOUNTAIN - HIGH UINTAS
July 2000 - 24 photos


We hiked from Trial Lake to Notch Mountain, High Uinta's on July 23rd 2000. Located in north-eastern Utah, the Uinta Mountain range is designated as a Wilderness area. Traveling east of Kamas Utah towards Mirror Lake, we turned off the highway at Trial Lake and started the hike from the parking lot located above Trial Lake. From there the trail head is well marked. The trail starts out at nearly 10,000 feet altitude, but is fairly easy varying only about 400 feet until the climb up into the notch of Notch Mountain, a few hundred feet more to 10, 580 feet. This hike took us past many small alpine lakes and the larger Wall Lake.  Standing in the Notch, you can see three lakes to the north and looking south you can see many lakes, including Wall Lake, Trial Lake and Washington Lake. Coming down we took the Clyde lake loop trail passing many more lakes. The hike was about six and a half miles long.


This area is called the High Uinta's becasue it's all above the 9,000 foot level, with some of the peaks exceeding 13,000 feet.
