Our happy place is in the mountains.... We love this scenic byway. It is just gorgeous. Lower Provo Falls is an amazing place to take pictures. Remember the one hour rule for perfect photography lighting. One hour after daylight and one hour before dusk are the most perfect times of day for taking outdoor pictures. This little spot is beautiful... More

This is one of our favorite local drives. There are several areas along the route to access hiking. The easy trail that circles Mirror Lake is a great one for families. The road is closed during the winter due to snow accumulation.

The Mirror Lake Highway is one of the most scenic drives in Utah. It winds its way from Kamas ultimately to Evanston. The hour drive from Kamas to Mirror Lake will pass myriad scenic views and mountain lakes.

This drive gives the individual the opportunity to truly enjoy the Utah high country. Don't try too early in the year, there is no snow removal. Mirror Lake in one of the Utah scenic wonders and a great place for children to learn to appreciate nature.

This is a wonderful drive in any season. In March this road is only partial open but a scenic drive. We were blessed to see 3 moose-bull, cow, & calf. They were very close to the road. You need a road tag to park on this road. Can get one through the national forest.

We loved our trip to the Uinta Mountains. The scenery was fantastic. Mirror Lake, Scout Lake and Lofty Lake where pretty easy hike and gorgeous. We even got lucky and seen a goat.

The drive up from Salt Lake is quite at but when you're here it's lovely. There's places to camp and you can have some fit pit spots which is lovely. Great for a pic nic and place o escape the hustle and bustle of salt lake. A lovely place to come and visit.

We returned to this route three times! We enjoyed a ride there and back on our motorcycle, stopping off to enjoy scenic views then went back for a day of hiking the trails and another on dirt bikes to challenge ourselves with some awesome riding :) You need to take water and snacks and be prepared for weather changes but...

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.
