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.

good easy hike

This is one of those hikes where you will enjoy the journey more than the destination. Brown's Hole is just a muddy hole of brown gross water. However, there is so much to see on this trail. I suspect it would be brutally hot in the summer but the end of September was a perfect time to hike it. It follows the power lines the entire way and has two river crossings which were manageable. I saw moose, deer, beautiful fall leaves, and grouse and the views of the rock cliffs above and the river down below is wonderful. There are a few places to camp along trail and there are lots of Elder Berries along the trail that are now ripe.

Hiked this Sept 3 and it was beautiful!

This trails is on my favorites list. So beautiful!

It took us 3 hours and 15 minutes to hike with our 3 kids. We carried two of them but the 5 year old did great walking on her own. Great views and totally worth hiking in the fall to see the salmon run and the pretty fall colors. We will make this a yearly tradition I think.

it's a really hard hike. I have done it twice. steep grade to the lake/puddle then really steep to the peek. in late evening I ran in to moose on my way down. great views.

Trail isn’t well marked in places. I had to consult the map a couple times to find the way back down in places. Other than the fog at the top(clouds) and the snow and rain it was a lovely trip. Well traveled and lots of friendly people.

Very short and easy trail with a beautiful waterfalls
