Fishlake National Forest

Tips from the community

If you're like me, the forest feels like home. Fishlake National Forest is home to some of the most beautiful aspen groves and mountain meadows in the state. It's known as the family friendly forest of Utah! This destination is two hours away from Salt Lake City and it's the perfect escape into the trees. Fall is the best time to explore this National Forest. ✈ Follow highway 24 south of Sigurd for the most scenic leaf peeping adventure – the roads will be lined with gold leaves and stunning mountaintops!

    The state of Utah certainly has no shortage of scenic views, charming mountain towns, and epic must-do's. Luckily, most of the dreamy destinations of Utah are only a day's trip away from Salt Lake City! While travelling, I made a point to search for all of the hidden gems, historical wonders, and backcountry secrets while staying true to the nature of the state. As I share these must-see locations, it is important to be mindful of nature – practice safe driving, leave no trace, and plan ahead of time! Even though these destinations require some drive time, it's important to remember that the adventure is in the journey and not just the destination! Turn up the radio, roll down the windows, and enjoy your travels to and from Salt Lake City!
