The Wolf Creek Highway is approximately 21 miles long from Woodland, Utah to Stockmore, Utah. Restrooms are available at Wolf Creek Campground at the summit. This campground has three primitive campsites for overnight stays. Mill Hollow Campground is a rustic campground next to a small reservoir just three miles south of the Wolf Creek Highway, on Forest Road #054. Several parking areas are available along the highway for picnicking and stretching your legs. For more information about this drive, contact the Heber Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest at 435-654-0470.
Further along this beautiful highway are numerous stands of Aspens. In the fall, the leaves change to a vibrant golden yellow before dropping. Autumn is a quiet time in this area with very comfortable and cooler temperatures. The summit is around 8,000 feet above sea level. Frequently moose are seen in the is riparian area.
Atop the Duchesne Ridge, many sightings of eagles, hawks, owls, deer, elk, moose, and an occasional bear are seen. It is a very scenic drive and well worth the rough road between the head of Mill Hollow and Wolf Creek campground.
A small, natural lake is at the head of Little West Fork of the Duchesne River. Among the alpine fir and open meadows surrounded by Aspens, there are ideal areas here to view wildlife. Looking from the head of the West Fork of the Duchesne River, you will view Lodge Pole Pine stands, ideal for camping. The river offers some of the best fly fishing in the state. On the way up Lake Creek Road, just outside of Heber City, are red sandstone outcroppings.
Far-reaching views of the Uinta Mountains to the north and the Wasatch Range to the west are breathtaking. Several pullouts along the route offer excellent photo opportunities. Wildflowers dot the mountain meadows near the summit in spring and early summer, and wildlife is abundant along the entire drive. Some trails are heavily used and populated in the summer months. Please heed caution in popular areas and use correct right-of-way when passing others on the trails. A forest service day-use fee is required in this area if you stop at any point.
