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.

Love the hot pots. Great trail. Just FYI, the road was blocked off 4 miles from the trailhead so it ended up being about 12 miles total. So do allow for extra time. Also, go prepared for the trail is super icy, I would recommend some kind of microspikes. All in all, worth it :)

Slushy morning snow freezes over in the late after. Some wheels for the road would speed things up. Trail is nice but a girl broke her ankle today, so think about traction.

So beautiful in the snow!

Fun, easy, and scenic! A must for families. The waterfall is beautiful and weather was great! Didn’t go past the falls but was fun. Did a Vlog of it on you tube if you want to see it. “Daydreamer” is the channel “Hiking to Battle Creek falls” is the title.

I would not climb up the falls. That causes a large portion of the salt lake search and rescue calls... just look at it from the bottom. It’s still cool.

Less of a zoo than Blood Lake and more scenic in the bowl under Clayton peak. You can access it via peak 10420 and dropping down, or just continuing past bloods lake.

Camping under mount Magog in the wildflowers was awesome! The lake is pretty neat and we saw some deer at dusk. Lots of good campsites, had no trouble finding one in July.

The lake with the Lily pads is cute but not the actual lake lol. We spent some time there and were surprised how small it was, it kind of looked like the trail ended there. But go to the far end of that lake and you’ll see the trail continuing a ways to another lake. Cuberant lake is pretty big and I’m glad we noticed the trail and kept going!

This is a hidden gem! There’s a lot swing about a mile up the trail, and a couple decent waterfalls as well. The trail is definitely moderate, you get your blood pumping but nothing too hard.

I prefer this to the Mill D route. More mellow and more shade.

I enjoyed the hike, easy but challenge enough for someone that is starting to hike. Beautiful view of the Valley and the mountains in the North East.. It was a little muddy but nothing really bad.

Such a great morning to be on Grandeur. This was my first time up the backside and it was nice and gradual compared to the steep climbs on the valley face. Lots of friendly people on the trail and the dog owners were very respectful (much appreciated). I used spikes for the last 1/4 mile, more just to use them as I lugged them up there, and are not necessary but helpful. Arrived at the summit 10 min before sunrise for some great pics of the sun peaking it's head out. Great views

Really enjoyed the hike. Little mud but not too bad. Views were awesome.

Super icy so make sure to bring spikes or some kind of extra traction. The road is closed about 3 miles before the trailhead making this 11 miles round trip. The springs are kind of gross right now because people aren't packing out their trash and there's a lot of build up of moss.

Went up early afternoon, south facing slopes are slushy and got my socks wet but no big deal, spikes would be useful on the last 100 yards of the summit but not necessary. Otherwise fun hike w/ great views

Went on the hike February 8th. It was a long hike from the closed gate to the hot springs. The road was clear today, would have been great to ride a bike to the trail head then hike in. The trail itself is completely iced over. There are a couple of patches where you walk on dirt but the rest has at least an inch or two of ice. I would suggest some sort of ice traction for your shoes. Great hike and it is beautiful. Hot springs are really warm.

First hike in the Logan area, nice and easy one to start off with. Includes lots of great views and we even enjoyed a little picnic on the rocks next to the tranquil river. The view at the top is very beautiful 360 degrees around.

Great hike, awesome views and landscapes, great exercise. The hike wasn’t to bad, only five miles up and down, we really didn’t have any problem getting up there, except for exhaustion.
Anyway, great hike loved it!

Spectacular views ever improving as you're always gaining altitude. I couldn't get to the Upper Falls because of heavy ice and snow, but the trek up to the Lower Falls was rewarding enough: beautiful scenery all the way through. Best thing about hiking up there in the winter: no crowds. Truly worth it!

Beautiful scenery. Steep in the beginning and evens out after the first mile.
