Beautiful area right outside SLC. Lots of varied outdoor activities, trails, picnic spots etc. These are real mountains...be prepared for drastic weather changes. Bring water. Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.

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.
