The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is one of the 12 National Forests in the Intermountain Region as well as one of the urban National Forests in the Forest Service System. It covers an area that includes northern and north-central Utah, and southwestern Wyoming. This area also includes the larges population center within the State of Utah, which is known as the Wasatch Front. The Forest is heavily influenced and impacted from over a million people living in close proximity. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest has a net acreage of 2,169,596 acres. It is divided into seven Ranger Districts: Salt Lake, Kamas/Heber, Ogden, Pleasant Grove, Spanish Fork, and Logan in Utah; and Evanston/Mountain View in Wyoming. Scenic beauty on the Forest offers unlimited recreational opportunities throughout the year. Whether you enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, mountain biking, camping, picnicking, fishing, boating, swimming, horseback riding, etc., you can find the recreational experience you are seeking. Because of the abundance of recreation opportunities and the large urban population along the Wasatch Front, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is one of the most heavily visited in the entire National Forest System.

Very few hikers. Says cool because of tree cover and lots of wildlife

Perfect for a short hike, when you want distance and elevation, but not the people. I normally go up the river trail side starting at Spring Hallow Campground and come down by Crimson trailhead.

Great views the whole time! Normally use it to hike, but have also snowshoes this trail... one of my favorites

Trail is snow packed still at upper elevations but melting fast. Skiers and sledders have made the trail ice so appropriate footwear is required as the trail is steep. Traffic was moderate on cool Saturday afternoon. The waterfall is inaccessible without snowshoes. It can be seen from the trail in multiple locations but the snow off the trail is melting and deep.

Trail is slightly muddy with patches is snow and ice above the lower reservoir. Packed Snow up to the lower Falls so chains are helpful in the steep sections. The snow is deep enough above the Falls that snowshoes are helpful to avoid the occasional post holing. Beautiful in the winter and uncrowned first thing in the morning.
