This is a 4 Day backpacking trip to the top of King's Peak that is the highest peak in Utah at 13,528 feet and for some will day pack around the Henry's Fork Basin for the beauty below the peak. We will backpack from Henry's Fork Trailhead 9,430' from the North and travel to Alligator Lake for Thursday night, then on to Dollar Lake 10,785' to acclimate over night for Friday night and setup base camp. Saturday, we will have two options: one group will ascend King's Peak and the other group will day hike around Henry's Fork Basin. King's Peak is the 19th Ultra-Prominent View in the Continental US at 6,358 feet. The view is AWESOME and UNBELIEVABLE. Sunday we will break camp and backpack back out to the Henry's Fork Trailhead. Email me to get on the list or ask questions. TBA a Meet & Greet 4th week in June. *** Russ 801-973-6427, Patterson.Russell@comcast.net ***
