Mirror Lake sits nestled in the Uinta Mountain Range of North-Central Utah. The lake is at an elevation of 9500 feet, and as such is one of the highest lakes in Utah. It is within the Wasatch National Forest. The scenic drive there, on highway 150, will take you through forested mountains, small creeks, myriad alpine lakes and little towns. The hike around the lake is easy and fun, with many spots to go fishing or observe the wildlife. We saw woodpeckers, squirrels and chipmunks as well as the trout that make the lake home. It is a great spot for a picnic, a bike ride or an easy walk. Within walking distance of Mirror Lake you can find hiking trails for all abilities and several campgrounds near the lake, the creeks and waterfalls. Throughout the National Forest you’ll also find many spots to picnic next to lakes and creeks; you’ll find hiking trails and many campgrounds that invite one to be outdoors and provide a chance to see nature at its vey best.
