Take An Easy Loop Trail Past Some Of The Prettiest Scenery In Utah On The Mirror Lake Shoreline Loop

Mirror Lake’s elevation is 10,400 feet, so there’s hardly any suggestion of “summer” until July in this part of Utah. Even then, those temperatures are temporary. The timing is good, because July and August typically are the only months when the weather ever becomes uncomfortably hot in the Salt Lake Valley. That’s when Mirror Lake becomes especially attractive for a day’s visit or an overnight camping trip, with temperatures about 30 degrees cooler.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Even many people who live in Utah tend to think of the High Uintas as remote, yet Mirror Lake is only about 75 miles from downtown Salt Lake City and is easily accessible via the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway. Visit the U.S. Forest Service website for updated, seasonal information about camping and other opportunities to explore Mirror Lake.
