Fish Lake Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Fish Lake is a perfect example of why it is so imperative that we preserve the best of Utah’s wild lands while we still can. Cut off from the High Uintas Wilderness Area by the Mirror Lake Highway, Fish Lake is located just above the beautiful Weber River Drainage on the western end of the Uintas. Conservationists have long pleaded that this region should be given wilderness protection too, but it is probably too late now for Fish Lake to be included.

There are currently active housing developments within four miles of the lake, and the pressure to use the area’s resources is unrelenting. Fish Lake is being used as a reservoir by the nearby inhabitants, and its shores are marred by the presence of dead trees, killed by fluctuating water levels. Also, ATV trails now climb the ridge east of the lake, and before too many more years they will almost certainly reach the lake itself."
