Highlight: Bear Lake Summit Trail
Located in the Bear River Mountains, this beautifully scenic byway serves as the main vein for several connecting trails. The road is lined with a mixture of thick pine and aspen trees. These mountains are home to a large population of deer, elk, and moose. Free range sheep may also be crossing the road, so be cautious of your speed. There are plenty of excellent choices for dispersed camping along the way. Whether you are in a tent or a 40+ft. trailer, you can retreat to a cozy spot just off the trail.
