Description 

A moderate hike up a glacial valley leads to one of the real beauty spots in the range. Mount Beulah is a high point on a ridge dividing the Left Hand Fork of the Bear River and the West Fork of the Black's Fork River. It is one of the more spectacular mountains in the Uintas (which isn't saying much), and has significant climbing potential on both rock and snow. The rock is quartzite, of variable quality. Expect a couple of cold river crossings on the approach, afternoon storms, wind, and mosquitos. I saw no other people on my trip, which was on a summer holiday weekend.


Getting There 

Drive Utah Route 150 (Mirror Lake Highway) to the "North Slope Road," which provides access to the West Fork of the Black's Fork River. You will need a map. AWD vehicle recommended, but not absolutely necessary. Park at the West Fork of the Black's Fork River to access Mount Beulah from the East. YOU WILL BE HIKING UP THE WEST FORK OF THE BLACK'S FORK RIVER, TO ACCESS THE EAST SIDE OF BEULAH.

(The WEST side of Beulah is approached via the Left Hand Fork of the East Fork of the Bear River. This is NOT where you are going.)
