Flaming Gorge Activities
Red Canyon Overlook
Beautiful any time of day, many visitors opt to get up early for sunrise to watch the gorge live up to its name as the canyon walls catch the fire of the intense morning light.
Flaming Gorge Dam
A year-round visitor centre and summer guided tours unlock the history of the dam and accesses a stunning walk.
From Utes and Shoshone to fur trappers and outlaws like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the area has long provided a sheltered retreat, and today is an excellent spot for fly-fishing.
Dinosaur National Monument
Dinosaur National Monument and the Utah Field House of Natural History in Vernal combine for one of the west’s best dips deep into the region’s prehistory.
Sheep Creek and Spirit Lake Scenic Backways
Two gorgeous routes off the main highway that will guide you through impressive geological features and to the high country of the Uinta Mountains.
