TUSHAR MOUNTAIN SCENIC BYWAY
ABOUT TUSHAR MOUNTAIN SCENIC BYWAY
Have time for a drive of epic proportions? Consider heading east on SR 153 and be transported back in time to an untouched view of the west similar to what you would’ve found in the late 1800’s. You’ll drive through the Tushar Mountain Range where you can enjoy a side trip of OHVing, hiking, mountain biking and camping. This scenic byway is largely unspoiled and is abounding in beautiful pines and breathtaking vistas. Elk, deer, black bear and cougars live in the Fishlake National Forest as well as wild turkey and mountain goats. There are many side roads to explore off the scenic byway that have lakes with great fishing. Experience one of the best mountain ranges in Utah without the bumper to bumper traffic, it truly is serene.
If you have the time, go beyond the road and cast a line – there are several spots excellent for trout fishing, or go on a rock hounding hike. Hiking and horseback riding opportunities are plentiful as well.
This byway is a fall favorite as well, for leaf peepers and photographers, this a great drive to take in the full range of fall colors.
