The Uinta Mountains are located just outside Kamas, Utah, and are a pristine mountain area with stunning views and picturesque lakes. This is the perfect location for an amazing backpack getaway where you can reconnect and only worry about what you are carrying on your back! This 3-day adventure will begin on Friday, Aug 16. The group will meet at Hi Mountain in Kamas at 4 pm to carpool to the Pass Lake trailhead, which is 45 minutes away. From there, you will hike 1 mile and set up camp in a beautiful grove of trees. Day 2 you will hike to Kamas Lake and then have the option to visit Cuberant Lake. On Sunday, you will hike to Lofty Lake and then finish around noon.
