The Forest receives 9 million visitors annually and is one of the most heavily visited forests in the nation. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is where civilization meets the “wild.” Metropolitan areas and communities bordering the forest make up some of the fastest growing areas in the Intermountain West. Quick, convenient access is available to forest visitors year-round, making the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache an intensely used destination spanning backyard to backcountry. Roads and trails lead visitors to natural settings and spectacular vistas with fresh water and clean air. In winter, the “Greatest Snow on Earth” draws people from around the world. Forest lands have sustained local communities for thousands of years.

The American pika is a low-profile mammal that lives at high altitudes. Related to rabbits and hares, these small, big-eyed creatures spend much of the summer preparing for a harsh winter high above the timberline. Starting in mid-September, a DWR biologist will visit an established pika area above Brighton ski resort to check on population growth.
