Welcome to the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National
Forest. Our Forest is an intensely used destination spanning from backyards to back country.
As a visitor, you can go to natural areas and scenic vistas with clean air and clean
water. As a visitor to the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache, you can engage in a variety of activities,
including horseback riding, OHV riding, bike riding, camping, fishing, and hunting. Just
to name a few of the destinations and activities on 2.1 million acres of forest in Northern
Utah. There are however a couple of things I want
you to remember when you visit your National Forest.
Never leave your campfire unattended and always make sure it is cold to the touch before leaving.
Fireworks are never allowed on public lands. And check our website for current information
concerning fire restrictions before you head into the woods.
Depending where you are recreating, you may run into various critters in the vicinity.
These could include skunks, raccoons, squirrels, and even bears. These animals will come into
campsites for food. So please remember to keep your campsites clean.
Couple other things I want you to remember, never store food or eat in your tent.
Make sure you secure your coolers at night and put all of your food into your car or
RV. And never put grease or leftover food into
the fire pit. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache has endless miles
of multiple-use trails. Depending on which trail you select, you may see horseback riders,
hikers, mountain bikers, ATV’s or motorcycles. If you’re riding your ATV or OHV on the forest,
please remember to stick to designated roads and trails and never travel cross country.
If you’re traveling with livestock, please remember to use only certified weed free hay,
straw, or pellets. When you’re out on the forest, always carry
extra water and food, a flashlight, a whistle, matches, a cell phone, and extra clothing.
In case the weather turns or you get lost. And always let someone know where you are
going and when you plan to return. Whichever outdoor activity you choose, please
be courteous and remember to share your National Forest with other recreationists. Enjoy your
visit to the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and please be safe.
