The views from Bald Mountain Pass are breathtaking, across endless miles of forest and ridgelines. These mountains support a variety of wildlife, frequently seen along the highway. From Kamas, the road follows the picturesque Provo River as it drops over boulders and falls from its headwaters. Heading east from Kamas through the national forest, Mirror Lake Highway is one of the most popular mountain routes in the state. The road winds through farm and ranch lands and rises to heavily forested, mountain terrain, accented by meadows and rugged peaks. The road is the highest paved road in Utah when it crosses Bald Mountain Pass at an altitude of 10,715 ft There are numerous access points into the High Uinta Wilderness along this byway.

Lots of trails and dog friendly. Tons of lakes. Will have to go back multiple times to hit everything. Lots of fun to be had.

Such a great area with perfect scenery! Love that I was able to take my pup for a walk around the lake.

This is a fun bike ride from the top of Bald Mtn Pass to Evanston, Wy or to Midway, UT. Either way is 50 miles, primarily down hill. There isn't a lot of bike lane on some sections of the road, but traffic is generally relatively lite. Great views, especially with fall colors.

I live in Evanston and take the scenic hwy 150 to mirror lake every year to go hiking various lake trails. I have seen deer on all of my visits so be careful in the evening when driving. The trails in the mountains are spectacular. I love it up there.

Awesome place to camp, hike, watch the wildlife. Highly recommend Lili Lake campground. Beautiful drive as well. If you're into snowshoeing and cross country skiing you will also love the place in the winter. Quiet and peaceful.
Came across a few moose, bear, bald eagles and of course cows.
When the weather gets really hot in the valley this area is about 20F cooler.
Dog friendly.
