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.

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
