Hard to characterize, except to say that there are many varied acrtivities available: hiking, fishing, wildlife from birds to ground squirrels to coyotes to moose, picnicking, mountain biking, skiing, and just enjoying beautiful nature, including several significant waterfalls..

A nice summer day in SLC and we drove out the forest to picnic and hike. We had an amazing time and the 30-degree temperature drop at the top made it a great adventure. I would come back here again and again.

Stopped by Wasatch-Cache National Forest sightseeing. Wonderful place for hiking and photography. Parking is available.

This drive was part of our hike at Guardsmen Pass. We stopped at Silver Fork Lodge for lunch which was a winner. The rock formations through the canyon were incredible. I can imagine doing the drive in the fall would be equally rewarding.

We drove through Wasatch-Cache National Forest. It was a gorgeous sunny day. The upper elevations still had snow on the peaks. The trees were beautiful. We visited on Fourth of July weekend.

Really didn't get a chance to experience the forest as we basically just drove up to Silver Forks Lodge for dinner, but the scenery was very beautiful. Would we go back? Yes.

Only visited forest during the winter for skiing. The drive up the mountains is pretty and winding. The ski resorts are really nice with local charm.

2 families with a set of 10 y.o. And 2 teenage boys (14). Did a 2 hour snowmobiling tour, had a BLAST. Perfect activity for a non-ski day. Tour guide Walt was great, let us play around on the sleds in a large open area...More

We were staying in Park City and a couple at the bar had just returned from Mirror Lake in the Wasatch National Forest. They raved about it. It was about an hour drive there, but the drive is the best part! You'll lose cell service,...More

We kept stopping to take photos. Fantastic weather and skies. Everywhere you look is beauty. The fall colors were just fabulous. Glowing reds and salmons.
