We enjoyed an early fall snowfall along Highway 40 up into the Unitas. Beautiful, but you will feel safer with 4WD.

Need a quiet location to clear your mind and take in nature’s beauty? Uinta National Forest should be your destination.

Conveniently minutes away from Orem / Provo but distant from the hustle and bustle of modern society.

Campsites are easily accessible. Walking / hiking trails offer different levels of challenge. All of it provides you with beautiful vistas of the local mountains and the Utah Valley.

My wife and I drove up Provo Canyon past the Sundance Resort to take the Alpine Loop drive through the Uintas National Forest. The clouds were a bit low on the mountain, but the drive was still beautiful. The road is narrow with a lot of switchbacks and we were glad to have a Jeep instead of a larger vehicle. The aspen leaves were just beginning to turn and gave glimpses of the coming glory. The road on the Provo end of the loop is wider and better than that on the Provo Canyon end.

The Uinta National Forest of gorgeous. There is so much to see and do. The fishing is awesome, camping incredible and the views are amazing. The drive alone is worth the drive. The fall colors bring in spectacular colors on both sides of the road. There are back roads for 4 wheelers and motorcycles, old mines that the Spaniards created back in the 17th century. It's near the Ute Indian reservation. Lots to see and do..

This national forest offers a little of everything, and year round. The people in charge have done a great job of organization and the ranger station where you first stop has all kinds of helpful info

Was in the area and had a couple of extra hours so decided to drive the Alpine loop through the park. Beautiful scenery and nice drive. Would love to come back and hike.

The Uinta National Forest is a prime location for hiking, fishing, camping and exploring. One can spend a lot of time playing here. It is beautiful during any season. We fish, camp, hike, snowshoe and explore here frequently.

A ride through the Uinta National Forest from Heber City is an unforgettable experience. You'll pass right by Sundance and immediately ascend a winding road into the mountains, where there are incredible views. The road is twisty and narrow -- especially on the weekends, watch out for hikers crossing the road, and keep an eye out in the corners for large RVs or trucks pulling campers. Some of them are too long for the hairpins and encroach into your lane. The road is too narrow to just pull over anywhere, but there are plenty of prepared pullover/viewing areas along the way. Views throughout the drive are simply amazing, and they change every 100 yards or so. Just when you think you've seen the most amazing thing ever, another amazing thing pops into view. This is a drive you'll want to make again and again!
