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.

One of the prettiest hikes I've been on! The wildflowers are gorgeous, as is the lake itself. A little steep and rocky in some spots but I took a 4 year old and 6 year old and they managed just fine.

Pretty views at the top! Dog friendly although there is no river/water near the trail for the dogs so pack your own! Hot in the middle of the day with some shade throughout the trail

Unless you're an expert mountain biker, would not recommend this trail for biking. We took a group of 24 youth/adults on this trail with bikes and there are many unnegotiable rocky patches that require dismounting. At the end of the trail, we climbed the ridge to the Murdock Basin Road and took that all the way to the Mirror Lake Highway for a total 5-hour trip. The upper section of the MBR has many fallen trees across the road.

Easy hike. Great views.

Great short hike for families. It is super short with the fun waterfall at the end that kids can play in.
