Flaming Gorge-Uintas National Scenic Byway

Flaming Gorge-Uintas National Scenic Byway Review

Past Red Fleet Reservoir north of Vernal, U.S. 191 begins to ascend the eastern flank of the Uinta uplift as you head toward Flaming Gorge. The section of U.S. 191 and Route 44 between Vernal and Manila, Utah, is known as the Flaming Gorge-Uintas National Scenic Byway. Within a distance of 30 mi the road passes through 18 uptilted geologic formations, including the billion-year-old exposed core of the Uinta Mountains, with signs identifying and describing them. The route also provides plenty of opportunity for wildlife-watching and fossil hunting. Before setting out, pick up a guide to the road at the Utah Field House of Natural History.
