I am working on yet another hike in the Uintas. Nothing else to do with all the rain as of late :facepalm:

My question is has anyone traveled over the Divide to Upper Red Castle lake or heard of a route from a reliable source?

The approximate locations I desire are in red. This could be combined with the Smiths Fork Pass to make a nice circumambulation of Red Castle itself.

I have been over Porcupine and Smiths Fork Pass before and both are casual.

I remember reading a report where @Nick came over from East Fork Blacks Fork down to Red, then up and over that pass you have marked on the left and traversed over to Squaw Pass or there about to get back down to EFBF. So he should definitely be familiar with that side and I believe there is a pretty well established social trail that he said they ended up missing coming over from Red Castle. I'm sure he'll chime in about it.

Great! I will definitely re-read that TR and start getting stoked to make a trip out of something there. Thanks.
