The High Uintas Wilderness was established by Congress under public law on September 28, 1984. It encompasses 456,704 acres and is the largest Wilderness in Utah. The Uintas Mountains were named after the "Uintats" (Ute Indians) who were mountain dwellers. In 1825, after the first "Mountain Men" entered the area in seardch of furs, William H. Ashley, an explorer and fur trader with Rocky Mountain Fur Company, organized the first fur trader's rendezvous on the northern flanks of the Uintas at Burnt Fork, Wyoming. Because of their ruggedness and severe climate, talong with recent management efforts, the High Uintas have resisted intrusion by man and remain relatively unspoiled.
