Northern and Central Utah – 949,848 acres
The Uinta National Forest offers an inspiring view, and the promise of mountain recreation to the residents of cities below. American Fork Canyon and Provo Canyon located in the Uinta National Forest have an autumn mix of aspen and pine. Between the two canyons lies the 10,750 acre Timpanogos Wilderness. One paved drive full of rugged mountain beauty and many stunning overlooks of surrounding valleys can be found in the Uinta National Forest. In autumn, the brilliant display of colors found on this drive in Uinta National Forest is hard to match anywhere in the nation.
This loop in the Uinta National Forest begins at Payson City and ends near the city of Nephi, and features numerous campgrounds and recreation areas. Also located on this route is the Devil’s Kitchen Geologic Interest Sight, which on a smaller scale, reminds many visitors of Bryce Canyon National Park. The Nebo Loop features a number of improved trail heads providing access into the spectacular Mount Nebo Wilderness, popular for day hikes, backpacking and horseback riding. In another part of the Uinta National Forest, Strawberry Reservoir is a top trout fishing destination.
