backpack - garfield basin in the uintas - August 19, 2011

Hike into Garfield Basin from the Center Park Trailhead at the end of Hells Canyon. The first day (Friday) we will leave town early and drive to the trail head and begin our hike to Spider Lake about 8 miles plus from the trailhead. Trailhead elevation is 10,400', Spider lake elevation is 10,880'. We will hike over a 11,150' ridge on the way. We will set up camp for two nights at the lake. On the second day we will put on our day packs and explore the lakes in the upper Garfield Basin as an out and back hike. The trail goes up Garfield Basin and joins the High Line trail. There are many lakes in the basin and some hold some great fishing for anyone wanting to fish. The last day we will break camp and hike out. Email Kevin Earl at or call me at 801-568-3791 if you have questions. Registration required, group size will be limited.
