Reids Peak (11,708 feet) and Bald Mountain (11,943 feet) consist of the late Precambrian-age Mount Watson Formation,
part of the Uinta Mountain Group which forms the core of the Uinta Mountains. The spectacular scenery and vistas of the Uinta Mountains result from numerous glacial cycles during the Quaternary Period.
