  • Fantastic wilderness, just a stone's throw (20 minute drive) from downtown Salt Lake. These are the Wasatch Mountains with works class ski resorts nestled inside. Fantastic for both summer and winter recreation. Highly recommend for everything from skiing to hiking to cross country skiing to anything in between
  • Beautiful walk thru an ecosystem. Peaceful lake with educational points around it. Mountains are a lovely backdrop to the lake. Visitor center has lots of info. Interesting drive up odd houses along the way and nice photo ops both on the drive and in the park. I noticed a picnic area as well. Only complaint is lack of parking. Especially for handicap access.
  • Hands down one of my top 5 national forests. So many different things to see, trails to hike, activities to do. I've lived nearby my entire life and I still haven't explored even half of what it has to offer. Snow activities are some of the best in the world. Visit if you can!
  • Fantastic canyons. Inspiring views. Wonderful waterfalls. And, awesome ski hills. I'm definitely coming back for more!
  • This place is awesome. Lots to do for adventure seekers. Plan before you go to make sure you get in all activities you might be interested in. Go big have fun!
