Highlights

Highlight: Norway Flat
A gem of the beehive state, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is home to thousands of miles of forest roads, along with endless camping, fishing, and many other recreational activities. The Norway Flats area, just 10 miles from town, is a great intro to the vast wilderness of these mountains. Norway Flat is an easy trail leading you to numerous great camping spots as well as a few small lakes where you could take the kayak out and enjoy some peace and quiet. Due to the fact that there are no developed campsites along this trail directly, and the small size of the lakes, this trail doesn't see quite as much action as others in the area, making it a great trail to escape the crowds and enjoy the cool mountain air.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
