I always make time to drive the Scenic Byway 150 when returning from Wyoming to Salt Lake City. The whole drive is stunning especially when you get to Mirror Lake. You have to pay $6 (put in envelope at ranger station) to drive the byway if you want to pull over, otherwise I think its free to travel as long... More

The walk around the lake was very enjoyable and easy. Anyone could do it, we took our time and took lots of pictures. The lake was stunning.

We saw cattle on the road (open range), hawks, mule deer, chipmunks, magpies, a light dusty of snow in the higher elevations, beautiful aspen in golden & rusty orange, fir & pine trees and the terrific, unique Wasatch Mountain Range. The top elevation for the road is about 10,800 feet. Provo River Falls is a particularly beautiful spot for a... More

A scenic drive anytime but especially so when the fall foliage is changing. Sections of the drive matched Colorado or New England for fall foliage color. Stop at Mirror Lake and take the easy 1.5 mile walk around the lake. If coming from Kamas don't bother driving all the way to Evanston. Stop at the ranger station on the Evanston... More

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
