A 66.5-mile route that ascends 3,000 feet into the Uinta Mountains and curves alongside Flaming Gorge Reservoir, offering spectacular views and unique opportunities to see dozens of geologic formations. Wildlife Through the Ages Scenic Byway travels into the Uinta Mountains and then parallels the upper canyon of Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The highway was designed to lie lightly on the land, and it rolls and curves gently with the terrain. The two-lane road is paved and has frequent turnouts for scenic and recreational opportunities. Traffic is light to moderate; weekends and holidays are quite busy. Special attractions: Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, outstanding views, Sheep Creek Canyon Geological Area, Utah Field House of Natural History Museum and Dinosaur Garden.
