Mount Cardwell – Uintah Mountains, Utah

July 13, 2009 at 6:04 am 2 comments

A beautiful Friday morning greeted us as we traveled up the Mirror Lake Highway to Bald Mountain Pass. Our intended destination was Bald Mountain, but a cool spring allowed the winter’s snow to block the trail up. We chose instead to hike Mount Cardwell, an infrequently-summited peak just off the pass. No trail leads to the summit but it’s easy to find. We crossed the highway from the Bald Mountain trailhead and traversed the western flanks of Murdoch Peak. We were treated to great views of the western Uintahs.

Much of the hike is on broken rock and this slowed us down, but the summit is only about 2 miles from the road. The summit is marked with a log – here we enjoyed a pair of feta-infused lamberghinis – thanks OldBull!
