Explore the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway

Mirror Lake Scenic Byway - Search Nearby - Added by Jordan Smith

78 miles of beautiful scenic driving. Wide range of activities. Dense forest. Rivers. Lakes upon lakes upon lakes. Abundant wildlife.

Mirror Lake Scenic Byway is breathtaking. There is lots to take in via longer trips, but with numerous viewpoints, lakes, and the Provo River just off the main highway, the drive through alone is well worth it.

There is SO much to do in the Uintas, with activities ranging from lakeside picnics to fly fishing the Provo River to canoeing on one of the many lakes to multiday backpacking through the Christmas Meadows to Amethyst Basin... and the list goes on.

Make sure to stop at Mirror Lake - the highway's namesake - and walk on the lakeside trail. It's beautiful. Hint - sunset is an amazing time to be at the lake.

You can stop at the ranger station in Kamas (or Evanston if you are coming from the north) for maps and information about the byway. You can also purchase larger, more detailed maps there.

Now get out there, find your own adventures, and share them with the rest of us!

Getting There:

From the Salt Lake area or south of Salt Lake, drive to Kamas. You will likely be on or intersect with Main Street (HWY 32). Take Main Street north to Center Street and turn right. Travel east and Center Street turns into the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway.

From anywhere near or north of Ogden, take I-84 East to the junction with I-80. Then take I-80 east toward Evanston, Wyoming. Take the second Evanston exit for HWY 150 and travel southeast. After you exit Evanston, the highway becomes the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway.

Love the Uintas!

The Mirror Lake Highway contains so many adventures and it is definitely one I highly recommend!

I try to go to Washington Lake once or twice a year. This is an awesome adventure with fantastic scenery. Lots of lakes and fishing. Bring mosquito repellent during the summer.
