A great drive to reconnect with the beautiful scenery of the Uinta Mountains. Lots of areas to pull off, towards the summit there are many lakes, don't forget to see the Provo River Falls - easy walk from the parking lot.

This is a must do if you are in Park City. This has to be one of the best scenic drives in the USA, its a 30 mile drive and you will see lakes, river, deer, water falls and if your later in the season some leaves changing colors. Its only $6.00 to park and pass is good for 3... More

This is a "must do" if you area interested in scenic drives in the Park City area. The trip from Kamas, Utah, only 15 miles outside of Park City, to a small town just across the border in Wyoming, is 42 miles. The road is a state highway and much of the trip is driving through high elevation meadows--not the... More

I love this ride. Compared to most places to ride the scenic byways, it is only a relatively short ride, but one of the most beautiful byways in Utah. Gentle curving roads that climb to over 10,000 feet above sea level. In the fall the colors a wonderful, in the summer it is a nice cool retreat. Just beware in... More

This scenic drive lives up to its billing. There are campsites all along the road, easily accessible trailheads for hiking or horseback riding. Watch out for the "open range" livestock though. Many places to pull off and picnic too. Several lakes and the Provo River line the road on the way to the star, Mirror Lake. You can continue past... More

The Mirror Lake Scenic Byway provides travelers with incredible access to more than 40 miles of scenic views of the Uinta Mountains. Elevation on the Byway ranges from approximately 8,000-11,000 feet above sea level. The road is paved and well-maintained. There is no charge to use the byway if stops aren't made while traveling. I recommend paying the nominal fee... More

We really enjoyed our drive from Park City to Mirror Lake. Lots of places to visit along the way. Beautiful scenery all the way. Once at Mirror Lake the mile and half trail walk around the lake is a must. A great half day trip that was one of favorite activities our week in Park City.

This was a day well spent. We stopped at Provo Falls, Mirror Lake, and Crystal Lake Trailhead where we hiked to Wall Lake. From there you could hike to several other lakes. Many people were fishing and had caught a lot of trout. Very scenic and fresh fresh air!

This high mountain byway takes you up through the west end of the Uinta mountains. Along the way you have many places to pull off and do quick hikes or if you are truly adventurous you can take multiple day hikes into the High Uinta Wilderness. You follow the Provo River to the summit and just before reaching the top... More
