This is the highest peak in Utah, and the hike to the summit is well worth your time and effort. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail. There are three trailheads – Henry’s Fork, Yellowstone Creek (much less crowded), and Uinta River (50 miles long and barely trafficked). The standard route on Kings Peak is North Ridge. Bring your skis and a lot of warm clothes because the winds can be strong and chilly.
