Absolutely one of the most beautiful drives I have been on. Very scenic and colorful, about 50 shades of green at each turn. The photo stop at Provo Falls was great! Nice drive up to the pass of Bald Mountain. Then the 2 mile hike up to the summit was spectacular. 8 lakes to the north and another 8 lakes... More

My family loves to camp, drive, fish, hike, or just be anywhere along the Mirror Lake Highway! We most recently spent the day at Mirror Lake. The trail around the lake is well kept and easy for even our youngest member to walk. There were lots of people at the lake, but it did not feel crowded.

Will be a forever memorable drive. Even better than Mirror Lake at the top are the Provo River Falls which are a must see on the way up.

We drove to Kamas from Park City and the drive alone is spectacular. Mirror lake is one of the most beautiful in the area. However, I must say the entire area is breathtaking. Easy to difficult hikes.

We drove from Kamas up to Mirror Lake for a day's hike. It was a beautiful mountain lake, which we walked around. Many people were fishing from shore, catching stocked Rainbow Trout. Others were fishing in small boats or canoes. We stopped to chat with many fishermen, who were having good luck. On the way down the mountain pass we... More

Gorgeous, well paved scenic byway between Kamas, UT and Evanston, WY. Plenty of camping areas and hiking paths. Lots of pine and quaking aspens.

The scenic byway is absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend taking the time to drive this highway. We visited in late May and were unexpectedly met with several feet of snow covering the forest. The road was plowed nicely, the views were beautiful, and the trip was well worth the drive out to Wasatch National Forest.

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.
