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.

The walk from the Albion parking lot to the actual trailhead was pretty uneventful. You follow a road that winds through a ski resort. It adds a lot of time to the actual trail (so plan accordingly), but once you hit the cecret trailhead the hike is short, elevated, and fun. Great spot. Being from out of town, I would've loved to see the alpine lake in the spring or summer!

Easy hike. A quick trot to some nice falls. Expect to park out from the trailhead, which added time to our hike.

Went with my sister 2 days after the season's first big snowfall. Easy to find trailhead thanks to AllTrails' directions sent to phone! : ) Us Midwesterners were on vacation in Utah and looking for a good winter hike -- this fit the bill. Steady uphill with scenic views of White Pine Lake and watershed, plus snowcapped mountains and ridges. Muddy conditions were exacerbated due to fat-tire motorbikers, but otherwise a great trail.

This is a beautiful hike with amazing views.

Awesome. Easy to hike, even covered in snow.

Gate closed so hike was longer than expected with a 6yo. Quiet and forest trail is lovely.

Great easy hike with amazing views. Lots of parking and dogs ok off leash. You can do the 2 mile Wild Rose loop or extend to 3 miles via the Chukara loop. Trails are well maintained and very well marked.

I went on a mid-November day after a light snow the day before. Magical. I can't imagine the conditions can be improved upon this singular perfect day. Cue the Lou Reed. Make sure to continue straight past the sign and scramble over some rocky terrain all the way to the falls. Don't deprive yourself of the payoff at the end. Quite grand.

Fun hike awesome views. Dislike the sandy trailhead at the beginning
