Manti-La Sal National Forest

About

The Manti-La Sal National Forest consists of three blocks located in central, eastern and southeastern Utah. The Manti Division, in central Utah, features narrow canyons and broad rolling ridges covered with aspen and spruce. A paved road across this division of the forest is designated as the Energy Loop: Huntington-Eccles Canyons National Scenic Byway. It winds over the Wasatch Plateau at 5,000 to 10,000 feet. There are several high elevation lakes, and developed areas for fishing and camping.
In southeastern Utah, the La Sal and Abajo mountain ranges provide excellent opportunities for cross-country skiing, hiking and mountain climbing. They also serve as scenic backdrops to state and national parks in southeastern Utah. Dark Canyon Wilderness is a spectacular area offering solitude and adventure. Excellent fishing occurs throughout the forest.
