Route Description for Tri-County Peak

The Tri-County Peak Trail is a beautiful hike in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National forest west of Park City, Utah. This trail is moderately challenging with a consistent incline, so we recommend this hike for families with older children. Be sure to bring lots of water and a camera as the consistent climb will lead you to a wonderful summit viewpoint overlooking the Utah wilderness.

From the Bloods Lake Trailhead, follow highway 190 west, then turn right to head north at Guardsman Pass. After a few hundred yards, you will reach a split in the trail, take the path on the right and continue north for 0.3 mi to another divide. Finally, take the right-hand path once again to hike the final stretch up to the top of Tri-County Peak.

At the top, take a rest and enjoy the summit views before turning around and following your footsteps back to the trailhead.

If you are looking for a longer adventure, this hike can be combined with the Shadow Lake Loop, although please note that dogs are not permitted at Shadow Lake.
