General Information

Description - The Mountain Land Travel Region extends eastward from the Salt Lake County line to include the eastern slope of the Wasatch Mountains. The Provo River flows through the southern end of the range and empties into Utah Lake. Two reservoirs lie along the Provo River, Deer Creek and Jordanelle. Mountain Land extends northeastward from the Provo River to include the Uinta Mountains and the upper Weber River Valley. The Uinta Mountains reach heights above 13,000 and contain a large roadless area named the High Uintas Wilderness Area.

Attractions - Like every region of Utah the Mountain Land Travel Region is filled with interesting attractions and amazing landscapes. This area includes the southern and eastern appendages of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. Within this National Forest are Brighton and Park City Ski Areas. Eastward in the National Forest is the High Uintas Wilderness Area. Between the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains is a large river valley that contains seven developed state parks. At the mouth of this valley is Utah Lake. A large state park facility lies on its eastern shore. Close to Utah Lake is Timpanogos Cave National Monument.

Recreation - Visitors to the Mountain Lands can enjoy fishing, swimming, water skiing, boating, hiking, camping, backpacking, horseback riding, four-wheel driving, spelunking and mountain biking during the warmer seasons. In winter, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, ice skating, ice fishing and snowshoeing are popular activities.

Climate - The climate of the Mountain Lands Travel Region is somewhat different compared to other areas of Utah. The elevation is higher and therefore summer temperatures remain mild and winter is very cold. Winter weather
can mean tricky driving conditions on snow-covered mountain roads. Be prepared for wet weather when traveling in the mountains. Chains may be required during the winter on some mountain passes.

Location - This travel region lies in northcentral Utah with the Utah-Wyoming border forming its northern boundary. It includes the easternmost portions of the Wasatch-Cache and Uinta National Forests. The southern boundary skirts the northernmost point of the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The region ends slightly south of Utah Lake.
