Beautiful drive up the mountain to this lookout! Can see for miles. Awesome views minus the trash at the bottom:( However the best part is the hiking trails are dog friendly! Very hard to find in this town. Enjoy!!

We traveled the pass from Midway to the Olympic Center in Park City. It was amazing to see the tall trees, housing within the forest.

Take this trip and enjoy scenic country and Mountain View’s. Stop at the pass. Take in the views and take a short hike down to a pretty lake. Worth the trip.

Good trailhead for a number of different trips. Parking is horrible. Mostly mountain and road bikers use that lot.

It is a beautiful location. I would imagine if you asked the Huber City people. You would have to truck everything up there. I would only attempt this in the summer.
