High Uintas trail report

For those who might be interested, the high Uintas trails are becoming hikeable. Dzevad and I did a quick out-and-back to Clyde Lake this weekend. At 10,500 feet it’s a good indicator of the trail conditions at higher elevations.

It was legitimately HOT when we started up, unexpectedly so. Consequently I expect that these conditions will evolve rapidly. We are looking at a solid week in the 90s here in the Salt Lake valley so the remaining snow is going to come off fast.

You can see a few photos and our hiking track at Spring hike to Clyde Lake on Ramblr. Snow patches began to appear at about 10,000 feet but post-holing was minimal right up to Clyde Lake. Snow at the lake is pretty much gone and we had a nice lakeside lunch.

Bottom line: trails are open for business above 10,000 feet in the Uintas!
