This is a great ride, with lots of twistys, starting at 4600ft peaking at 8000ft.

The road is only open from Late May through October, with the Fall colors showing in Late September and October. The cost is $6 for a 3 day pass to the area, so you can plan on doing it a couple of times.

If you go in the morning, you will miss most of the traffic, as it is a popular route.

It is a beautiful, winding mountain road with good quality pavement. The side-trip to Cascade Springs is well worth your time, and, if you don't mind dirt road, there is a free back entrance from Midway.

This road can be combined with Guardsman Pass and Pine Canyon Rd. out of Midway for an excellent afternoon ride from Salt Lake City to Thanksgiving Point.

Beautiful ride, but you have to be paying pretty close attention. There are a lot of spots that are barely a lane and a half wide, and sometimes it is surprisingly heavily traveled. Watch out for trucks pulling campers!
