Manti-LaSal National Forests offers diverse opportunites

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The 1,413,111-acre Manti-La Sal National Forest is located in southeastern Utah. The Manti Division is part of the remnant Wasatch Plateau (5,000 to 10,000 foot elevation) with high elevation lakes, diverse vegetation, near vertical escarpments, and areas of scenic and geologic interest.

Recreation pursuits include sightseeing, hunting, fishing, off-highway vehicle riding, camping, picnicking, and just relaxing in a forest environment. Winter activities include snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

The Energy Loop is a connection of two canyons - Huntington Canyon and Eccles Canyon, which together comprise the heart of Utah's energy production country. The Federal Highway Administration has recognized The Energy Loop: Huntington and Eccles Canyons National Scenic Byway as one of America's premier driving roads. Two National Recreation trails, the Left Fork of Huntington Canyon (6 miles long) and the Fish Creek Trail (10 miles long) are also located on the Wasatch Plateau.

Fees, maps and information are available from the Manti-La Sal National Forest or the Castle Country Regional Information Center (CCRIK). Call 435-637-8954 for more information.
