We decided to drive around the loop after Flaming Gorge. We were all glad we did. The scenery was stunning and a geologists' paradise. The rock formations were amazing. If you are near Sheep Creek, then this drive is a must
This was such a beautiful loop that we just happened on to. We thought is could be a national park! We took our bikes off the car and rode them for a few miles so that we could soak in the beauty. We stopped and ate lunch and also stopped to see Big Spring. There was a cave above Big... 更多
We didn't have time to do the loop that goes further back into the mountains. Coming from the north, the start was a gravel road, and we didn't have time to do that.

Roads are not good for really big RVs. We dropped ours on the south entrance parking lot and was happy we did, because the views on 191 are excellent going both ways.
Check out camp site first thing they are limited in that area, but unlimited on top of the mountains near Uinta Lookout
I would not recommend driving this loop unless you were passing it. There were no signs to tell you when to stop and see things. It was very pretty though
