Tucked away in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, it is one of the most popular mountainous driving routes in both states. Plan 2 hours to complete the drive without any stop. Make sure you leave enough time to make plenty of stops along the way because the road winds through farm and ranch lands and rises to heavily forested, mountain terrain, accented by meadows and rugged peaks. There are numerous access points into the High Uinta Wilderness along this byway. It is named for Mirror Lake, a picturesque lake that the highway passes along the way.
