Things To Do



Designated as the state's first National Forest scenic byway in 1988, this route known as `The Drive Through the Ages` travels through the Ashley National Forest and east of Uinta Mountains, one of the few east-west ranges in the country.

The byway meanders over the eastern flank of the Uinta Mountains and through the Ashley National Forest and Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. View wildlife in their native habitats and experience the "real West" as passed down through western folklore of early explorers, homesteaders, mountainmen, outlaws and cowboys.
