Mirror Lake

This was the high light of our visit. The scenery was gorgeous and their had been a light snow making the area look like a scene from a Thomas Kincade picture.

We took the beautiful Mirror Lake Scenic Byway and while we totally missed the fall foliage, we enjoyed the beautiful mountain vistas. We took the road from Park City, stopped at several scenic vistas and then circled back to Park City via Evanston, WY. Lots of picnic spots too. We heartily recommend this drive! Beautiful!

We hiked up bear creek trail and it was beautiful!!! All the leaves were changing as you can tell from the pictures. Lots of cows and cow dung on the trail as it seems to be an open pasture area. It's a dog friendly trail so our pooches came too. There was signage that a permit is required for parking... More

Good roads, beautiful drive to an equally beautiful lake! Watch for a pull off area on the left as you head toward the lake where you can walk down to the stream trickling down the mountain with little waterfalls every several yards.Highly recommend this drive.

Well spent time driving the mountain roads to Mirror Lake. The road travels through valleys and mountains covered in many different types of trees which were just turning color when we were there in early September. Take a jacket though as the area by the lake is quite a bit cooler than Park City. It's a two lane road most... More

Me and my wife visited that nice lake and surrounding area two weeks ago. No words are enough to say our feeling about all the wonderful places we have visited since we live here in Utah and there are many other to visit in the future.

This drive is gorgeous! You will feel you have left the world once you get 5 miles out of Kamas. The Mirror Lake Highway is great to loop over to Evanston Wyoming and have dinner and be back within a couple of hours. Great loop to drive and September is one of the most beautiful times of the year to... More

The best time to take this drive is in the fall when the leaves start changing. The Provo River overlook is a nice place to stop along the way. The lakes can get quite busy in the summer but all are very beautiful. Technically you have to pay to drive this IF you plan on stopping for fishing or picnics.... More

This is a very gorgeous area where true nature still exists. I took a motorcycle ride from Kamas to Evanston through this pass and I was in heaven the whole time. Just be prepared it is starting to get chilly towards the peak. This is also an open range area, I encountered a few cows on the side of the... More

A pretty route from Kamas, winding first through ranch lands and then into the beautiful national forest. Beautiful stop to see waterfalls that are stunning. The trail at the falls is very short, although you can continue along the river beyond the trail. Accessible even for those who cannot walk far. Mirror Lake also had a short, very easily walkable...
