“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Make sure you go that route to the cute town of Midway. Spectacular views the entire way. Used to be gravel, now paved with huge homes and hotel near the top.

“Scenic Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

A must see if you are in the Park City or Heber areas during the fall. Beautiful aspens and majestic views. Bring a camera and a sweater.

“Fall color and forever views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a do not miss drive especially when the fall colors are in full glory. Pack a lunch and picnic along the way. You end up in Big Cottonwood by Brighton and Solitude resorts.

“Jeeping fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Son & his wife took us twice over this pass for adventures. Enjoyed both days. One to Heber and then through a Wasatch State Park and the other to Park City area. Both this pass and the other areas have fantastic views.

“Stunning Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We drove this area and hiked along the way twice. Pack a lunch and enjoy it sitting on top of one of the mountains like we did.
