Wasatch Over Wasatch Professional Review and Guide
"Wasatch Mountain State Park—located along the eastern slope of the Wasatch Mountains—is the oldest of Utah’s state parks, established in the Heber Valley in 1957. The area is famous for relatively easy access to Salt Lake City, year-round water, good pasture, and farmland. The towering mountains and green valley are often compared to the stunning scenery of Switzerland. Swiss converts to Mormonism were attracted to the area. Pioneers John Huber and Ullrich Probst set up farms near the current visitor center, and their property was sold to the state by their descendants to become the heart of Wasatch Mountain State Park. Since that time, the state has purchased additional property to enlarge the park’s scope."
