East of Park City, this scenic byway winds through aspens and ponderosa pines, skirts alpine lakes and waterfalls, and reaches 11,943-foot Bald Mountain. The ride is good, but getting out of the car is better. A spectacular hike is the 5-mile, 5-lake Lofty Lake Loop, which starts at the Pass Lake Trailhead at mile 32. Keep an eye out for moose, wildflowers, and changeable weather. Reward yourself with turkey jerky from Samak Smoke House or a shake at Uinta Drive-In, near the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest's Kamas entrance.
