I'm looking for a 35-50 mile route in the Uintas for me and
my teenagers in July of 2019.

I've done from Mirror Lake Highway to West Fork Blacks Fork and Red Castle - Yellowstone - Henrys Fork loop.
I'm doing the Highline solo in August 2019.

Looking at the map I can do derivations of those two routes and get the miles,
but haven't found anything that gets the miles but is unrelated to those.

Do you have a favorite that is unrelated to those and still has some great sights?
If you have a recommendation I'd really appreciate it.

You've done/are doing the goods. Now go to The Winds!
Thanks Nick!

That's kinda what I've been thinking after pouring over the maps.

Think I might do the Sawtooths first though.

The Sawtooths are not nearly as cool as the Winds, IMO. That said, then the Sawtooths will seem better because you haven't done the Winds yet! :D

I have not done the entire highline, but if you are looking for a partner I would be interested in joining. I run ultras regularly so I would be looking to move pretty fast.

I'm happy to have people tag along, if you can keep up. ;)
I am NOT fast. The biggest day I would plan on would be
15 miles, unless I were really behind.

I'm planning on doing it Friday to Friday with
the following Saturday and Sunday as a buffer.
