“Situated in the Uintah Mountains - the 'Land of a Thousand Lakes' - Mirror Lake is one of Utah's most iconic landmarks. That said, it can sometimes get a bit crowded - there are literally hundreds of other lakes within a stone's throw that are somewhat lesser known, but still just as gorgeous. Check out Washington Lake, or, if you're not afraid of a healthy hike, try Duck Lake.”

“One of the most popular mountain routes in the state, Mirror Lake Scenic Byway cuts through Utah's highest mountain range from the town of Kamas up into the Uinta-Wasatch Cache National Forest before descending to placid Mirror Lake. Many small lakes, waterfalls, camping sites, and hiking trails are along this beautiful route. There are no retail services within the forest area, so it's best to shop and gas up before you begin your drive. Directions: Take UT-248 east from Park City towards Kamas for 16 miles. Turn left at the intersection of UT-248 and UT-32. Drive 2 blocks then turn right onto UT-150 (Scenic Byway). Drive 32 miles along the highway to Mirror Lake. Return the same way or continue to Evanston, WY and return via I-80 westbound. Access: Closed in the winter. The best time to drive it is late May to late October. No charge to drive the highway. Must purchase a 3-day National Forest Pass to park and use facilities. This pass is also valid for the Alpine Loop. Distance: 48 miles one-way from Park City to Mirror Lake. Average Drive Time: 1.5 to 3 hours.”

“The tallest point in Utah! Over 20 miles to the nearest town. Approximately 34 miles RT hike. Camp lower down, near one of the lakes as it's very exposed up high. Entire last mile is rock scrambling!”

“One of the few drive in movie theaters left in Utah!! Outdoor drive-in theaters are a rapidly disappearing American tradition and they can be really fun for families. Roosevelt also has two indoor theaters with three screens between them.”
