This was kind of a pointless hike, as it was way too long with not much payoff. If you had the right kind of vehicle, you could easily have driven to the top of this summit, but I ended up walking about 4 miles each way. It's not very scenic by Uinta standards, either.
FR 107 is a just a little bit down Highway 150 from the Shady Dell campground, and I was able to drive up to the intersection with FR 170. After that, the road degenerates so that you wouldn't want to drive it in a sedan.
The road to the summit goes on a long loop around a ridge, and I couldn't find a trail that just went straight up to the not terrifically high "peak". In retrospect, I probably should have just bushwacked my way through the woods, but I followed the road almost all the way, only peeling off towards the end. The trees are not particularly dense, and it was very easy to just head uphill. I roamed around for a considerable amount of time without finding a benchmark, but I was able to find a high point where I could consume my homemade cheeseburger.
Looking over the edge, in the general direction of my car, I noted a steep rockfall, which looked navigable, and a long flat stretch of forest that seemed like it would be easy to cross. This was preferable to the long road home, so I decided to uncharacteristically be adventurous and give it a shot. As you can see in the picture below, the fall colors are just starting to develop in the area.
This plan was a success, although it did not end up saving me any time, as it took awhile to carefully make my way down the loose boulders. I was especially careful, as there was no cell phone service and I didn't have a knife with me in the event that I had to deal with a trapped limb. Later, walking through the forest below, I did notice some large paw prints in the mud that are probably from bears, but no live animals were seen.
