Kings Peak



The tallest mountain in Utah at 13,528 feet above sea level, Kings Peak might not reach the colossal summits of Alaska’s Denali, the Himalayas, or the Andes, but it offers its own brand of a lofty vista in our own backyard. This high point sits amid the wall of peaks and passes that make up the Highline Trail. The crown of the Uinta mountain range, Kings Peak offers some extraordinary summiting opportunities to those willing to endure the long hike and steep climb required to get there.
