Overview

Break away from the valley heat in Moab and climb into the clouds along the La Sal Pass trail. Within this region of the Manti-La Sal National Forest, rocky peaks tower over 12,000 feet. La Sal Pass zigzags through the pine and aspen trees before summiting the picturesque pass between the mountain tops. The trail offers a beautiful half-day trip to the two small mountain lakes near the summit. The trails early section is still recovering from a recent fire, but the vegetation at higher elevations eventually envelopes you in a very dense forest with abundant wildlife.
