Description

High in the Uintas, Ruth Lake offers steep routes with the odd roof. Mainly shady, pick this location for the hottest of days.

Getting There

Park just before or at Mile Marker 35. Hike east along the trail from the lower parking lot. 100 yards after the "Haymakers and Hibernators" sign, take a small trail to the left, to access the cliffs.
