Canyon is in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest on the Mirror Lake Highway Road east of Kamas. To get there from the Salt Lake
Valley, Take I-80 east, up Parleys Canyon. At the Silver Creek
Junction take Highway 40 south. At the Keetly Junction (second
Exit) go east on Highway 248 to Kamas. At the stop light in Kamas,
turn left on Main Street for Highway, then turn
right at the next stop light on Center Street (Highway 150) .
Travel east on Highway 150 for 17.5 miles. You will see the
Spring Canyon Turn off to your left. There is no trailhead so
you can drive up the road until you find a spot or park in one of
the primitive camping spots right on the Mirror Lake Highway road.
In Kamas there is a store, gas station and some eating places. I
would recommend the Kamas Cafe. Don't forget to stop at
the Beaver Creek Nudist Ranch, it is a great place for a family
vacation. It is on the Mirror Lake Highway by Samak.
Samak is Kamas spelled backwards. This picture makes a great
picture to use for your family Christmas Card.
There is the Duchesne Tunnel Campground Right Across the Street
from the Spring Canyon Road. There is also some primitive
camping spots on the Mirror Lake Highway around the turn off.
This is nice in places and rocky in others. You can ride
almost to Washington Lake. also there is a trail into Lambert
Meadow. There are many lakes you can drive to so you may want
to take your fishing pole.
The Mirror Lake Highway 150 is groomed in the
winter and is a snowmobile trial all the way to East Fork of the
Bear. The Mirror Lake highway is plowed to the Soapstone Basin.
There is a parking lot right on the Highway 150 and a restroom. The
Spring Canyon Road is NOT groomed in the winter. I wouldn’t got
up the trail without a
shovel and a many cases of power bars.
