day hike - castle peak & lake in uintas - July 30, 2017

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
We will hike to Upper and Lower Yellow Pine Lakes, Castle Peak, and Castle Lake from the Yellow Pine trail head in Uintas. There is no trail to Castle Peak. In addition, the trail to Castle Lake from the junction with Yellow Pine Lakes may not be clear. So prepare for bushwhacking. While the total elevation gain is not a lot, there are some steep sections. Bring 10Es and plenty of water. The trail head has a restroom. Please bring a national park pass if you have. Plan to leave the meeting place (in SLC) early in the morning and be back around 6 pm. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Email before Friday, 6 pm, July 28, for the meeting place and time. Co-organized with Jim Kucera. Note: This hike will be exploratory.
