Mirror Lake is the namesake lake of the Mirror Lake Senic Byway in Utah's western Uinta mountains.  This large mountain lake is a popular fishing and camping mecca.  The forest service regulary stocks the lake with rainbow, brook and tiger trout.

The shoreline trail circles the entire lake and is popular with the fishermen to get to the other parts of the lake.  Many parts of the trail are over board walk to avoid damaging the wet lands surrounding the lake.  The trail is easy to get around and only has a couple of small hills.  It stays within about 20 feet of the shoreline in most places.

A day pass is required for all cars parked at the lake in 2009 a 1-3 day pass was $6.  You can purchase a pass at any of the self serve stops along the Mirror Lake Highway.  There are road signs advertising these stops in numerous places.  There is also a pay station 6 miles east of Kamas where you can talk to a ranger and buy your pass.
