On the Wasatch Front, the NFF is working with communities to support clean water and recreation opportunities for the Salt Lake City region.
Truly a backyard forest for the greater Salt Lake City, the Uinita-Wasatch-Cache (UWC) National Forest offers an escape for everyone. Skiers flock to the forest for world-renowned powder, while drivers cruise the roads on one of seven scenic byways. Hikers explore countless miles of trails through rugged mountains and nine wilderness areas.
Encompassing 85 percent of Salt Lake City’s watershed, the Wasatch Mountains contains diverse landscapes: high mountain lakes, Aspen forests, mountain shrub lands, wet meadows, and more. Keeping that water clean and the ecosystem healthy is a priority for our work on the Forest.
