Uinta Wasatch Cache National Forest, Utah

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest

The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is located in northern and north-central Utah. Year-round recreation opportunities make it one of the most heavily visited areas in the entire National Forest System.

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache

This forest encompasses Utah's Wasatch Mountains adjacent to the state's northern metropolitan area, and the north slope of the High Uintas Wilderness. Containing nearly 2.1 million acres of geological and ecologically-diverse landscapes (including seven Wilderness areas), this collection of forest areas is one of the most frequently visited in the nation. Ski and summer resorts located in this forest along the Wasatch Front near Logan, Ogden, Salt Lake City and Park City provide world-renowned downhill skiing and snowmobiling, as well as a variety of summer activities. Further south, American Fork Canyon and Provo Canyon have a mix of aspen and pine-covered slopes. Between the two canyons lies the 11,750-acre Mt. Timpanogos Wilderness. One feature of the magnificent forest is the Mt. Nebo National Scenic Byway. A landscape photographers dream, this route is a 37-mile paved drive full of rugged mountain beauty and stunning overlooks of surrounding valleys. In autumn, the brilliant colors found on this drive rival any in the nation. The loop begins at Payson City and ends at Nephi. It features campgrounds and recreation areas, including the Devil's Kitchen Geologic Interpretive Site. The Mt. Nebo Scenic Byway features improved trailheads providing access into the spectacular Mount Nebo Wilderness, popular for day hikes, backpacking and horseback riding. Also check out another great destination within Uinta-Wasatch-Cache Forest, Strawberry Reservoir, which is a blue ribbon fishery and boating destination.

Northern Utah, 2,100,000 acres
