Description - Upon entering the mountain town of Kamas, the jumping off spot for this Byway, one is reminded of the best things that small town America is known for. Cozy accommodations, hometown restaurants, and friendly smiles greet visitors. From the Kamas intersection of US-189 and U-150 you'll ascend through pine-covered mountain terrain accented with lush meadows and rugged peaks. Along the way you'll find more than a few scenic viewpoints and picnic areas to slow your progress, not to mention the inviting mountain lakes and campgrounds which line this high-mountain road. You might do well to plan enough time so you can take advantage of these pleasant diversions. Much of this Byway parallels the Provo River, well known as a Blue-ribbon trout stream. At Upper Provo River Falls, 24 miles from Kamas, a series of terraced cascades can be viewed from walkways near the road. The Byway climbs to an elevation of 10,687 feet at Bald Mountain Pass, affording spectacular views of the Uinta mountains, America's only major East to West running mountain range. The Uinta's are Utah's highest mountains, and home to camping, hiking, fishing, and mountain biking, as well as true back-country wilderness mountaineering. The road then descends past photo perfect Mirror Lake, where you may want to spend a day or two fishing and just soaking in the pristine surroundings.
