day hike to castle lake and yellow pine lakes -- western uintas

This is a repeat of a hike that had too much snow covering the upper part of the trail back in April. Get away from the July 4th crowds and join this Western Uintas hike. We will start from the Yellow Pine Trailhead just outside of Kamas from Mirror Lake Highway. We'll hike to beautiful Castle Lake and visit Yellow Pine Lakes on the way back. There are some nice views of the Western Unitas higher up. Should be back at the Park and Ride no later than 5:30 that evening.
