“Rad Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I was at the top of Guardsman Pass a few times. One time was just to see it and hike, one time was to do shuttle laps on our mountain bikes and one time was to camp in my truck.
It's awesome every time.

“Do this drive when the leaves are changing color”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

When I was there, the colorful leaves rivaled the leaf-peeping in Vermont! Really worth it if you are in Utah in the fall!

“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.
