Mirror Lake Scenic Byway

Evanston Ranger District

Heading east from Kamas through the national forest, Mirror Lake Highway is one of the most popular mountain routes in the state.  The road winds through farm and ranch lands and rises to heavily forested, mountain terrain, accented by meadows and rugged peaks.  There are numerous access points into the High Uinta Wilderness along this byway.
