Bald Mountain Pass

Bald Mountain Pass, the highest paved road in Utah

Bald Mountain Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.266m (10,715ft) above the sea level, located in the high Uinta Mountains in Wasatch County, in eastern Utah, USA. It’s the highest paved road in the state.

The road over the pass is asphalted. It’s called State Route 150 (Mirror Lake Highway), and is closed in winters.

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! Views from Bald Mountain Pass are impressive, and they become spectacular as you climb to the summit. You have a clear view of Mirror Lake, located just to the east, and a dozen other lakes in the western part of the Uintas. You also have great views of other towering mountain peaks.
