Description

This trail was originally constructed as the main access across the North Slope of the Uintas. The trail also has been known as the telephone line trail because the main telephone line from Whitney Guard Station to the Hewinta Guard Station follows this route. The trail runs west to east across drainages through meadows, conifer forests and high passes. Many of the trails into the High Uintas Wilderness branch off this trail. There are many scenic vistas along this route.
