China Meadows, Uintas, Utah

View of Red Castle in the distance

It has been a while since we have camped and ridden here. (Since 2005) The base camp is China Meadows Horse Campground.  There is a horse corral and six equestrian campsites.  The corral is divided into pie shape with each wedge a separate space.   We certainly didn't ride all the trails that were available and some day we may go back.  It has lost its allure, since we have found closer places to camp and ride that are just as beautiful, if not more so with more and closer lake access.

Portion of Red Castle trail that we rode up to Lower Red Castle Lake.  This was a full day's ride, for us and estimate 20 miles round trip.

This was a ride in 2005.  We rode about 3/4 of the way to the lake, hauling a toddler with us.  He learned to nap in the saddle.
