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.

nice view, wildflowers.

Great hike!

Excellent hike, my dachshund loved this one. It's not a crazy elevation gain and I'd rate it easy. Beautiful lake to see at the end, I'd like to hike it from Big Cottonwood Canyon side now!

started at 23rd street went to 12th street parking, then back. The way back was a workout, but worth it. Next time we want to start on 12th and see which is harder. Great workout. 3.5 hours.

Green and lush. Perfect Sunday hike.

Absolutely love this trail, we found a little break off from the main trail about .5 miles from the actual waterfall that overlooked it. It was absolutely gorgeous, we went on a rainy day and it ended up hailing on us, but it was so worth it!

Perfect trail. The further you go the more fun it gets.

Easy trail with a fantastic finish at the hot springs. Great to do on a nice day when looking for a relaxing hike.
