    Route Description for Mount Agassiz Loop

    The Mount Agassiz Trail is a fantastic route in the High Uintas. This trail is challenging and for experienced hikers only. Most of the Mount Agassiz Trail is not maintained and requires route-finding skills. We recommend downloading or printing a map before hitting the trail. If you have a GPS device, we suggest bringing that along. When you are loading up your pack with lots of snacks and water to fuel your adventure, make sure you leave some space for a camera, the Mount Agassiz Trail has incredible, panoramic views of the Utah wilderness at every turn.

    To hike the Mount Agassiz Loop, begin at the Highline Trailhead and take the path heading south. Less than a mile in, the trail will divide; take the path on your left to head southeast along the Highline Trail. Approximately a mile down the Highline Trail, you will see a rugged path on your left. Take this trail to head northeast to the top of Mount Agassiz.

    At the top of Mount Agassiz, enjoy the summit views before looping back west to the Highline Trail. When you find yourself back in familiar territory, simply retrace your footsteps back to the Highline Trailhead where you began.
