There isn’t a great way to see Kings from a road. Drive to the Henry’s Fork trailhead and start hiking. Kings kind of hides behind the mountains just to its north, but the peak does poke out if you look through/over Anderson Pass.

Thanks. I was wondering because that hike is LONG!! The Uintah mountains run east/west and I figured somewhere along highway 40 or interstate 80 you'd be able to spot it.

You may be technically able see the peak from the I80 but you’d have to really know what your looking for and maybe need optics.

That's what I was thinking. And most of highway 40 seems to low to see up and into the Uintah mountains.

As a side note.. Not King's peak but Mirror Lake hwy is a great drive for seeing the Uintahs with great access to a few lakes, hiking, and camping. Doesn't fulfill your request but a worthwhile drive for those that haven't done it.

Fun memories of camping in the Uintahs when the kids were little.
