DescriptionThe North Slope Road is a beautiful drive along the northern edge of the Uinta Mountains. Passing through pine and aspen forest, this unpaved road meanders through valleys, past lakes and over passes. The greens of the trees and meadows and the blues of the sky are vibrant here, and the occasional majestic peak framed by the forest is very scenic.
Paralleling the edge of the Uinta Wilderness boundry, inside which no roads are permitted, North Slope Road is the closest drive to this isolated and pristine natural environment. Access points to a number of north slope hiking trails into the wilderness can be found along this road, along with hundreds of side trails for ATV or four wheel drive enthusiasts. The road is occasionally rocky, but is passable to most passenger vehicles when dry. Due to switchbacks, RVs and trailers should not be taken on this drive.
