The Ashley National Forest
The Ashley National Forest encompasses about a million and a
half acres in northeastern Utah and southwestern Wyoming. The
Forest lies in three geographical areas: the east-west range of the
Uinta Mountains, the Green River Basin, and the Tavaputs Plateau.
Elevations range from 6,000 feet to 13,528 feet.
Steep canyons, high mountain peaks, glaciated basins, large open
meadows, and desert badlands produce a rich diversity of vegetation
and wildlife. The grasses and shrubs of the high mountain desert
are replaced by pinyon and juniper as the elevation rises. In
mid-elevation areas, aspen dominates and becomes mixed with
conifer. Higher up, the vegetation changes to conifer forest
composed of ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, fir, and spruce.
Wildlife is abundant. Larger species include black bear, mountain
lion, moose, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, mountain goats, and bighorn
Neighboring lands include the Uinta and Ouray Indian Reservation
to the south, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest to the west
and north, and a mixture of Bureau of Land Management, State of
Utah, and private lands to the east and southeast. Compared with
other National Forests, relatively few small tracts of private land
lie within the Ashley's boundary.
The High Uintas Wilderness, established by Congress in 1984,
comprises nearly one-half million acres in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache
and Ashley National Forests. Within the wilderness, elevations
range from 8,000 feet to 13,582 feet at the top of Kings Peak, the
highest mountain in Utah. The Uinta Mountain range runs east to
west, from the Wasatch Mountains into Colorado. Pre-Cambrian rock
formed from sediments laid down 600 million years ago makes up the
core of the range. Glacial activity carved deep canyons and left a
spectacular landscape of rolling, treeless peaks and stratified
ridges interspersed with broad meadows and numerous lakes.
The Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area lies in the northeast
part of the Forest. Flaming Gorge Reservoir extends almost 90 miles
into Wyoming and offers outstanding fishing and boating
opportunities. Record-breaking German brown trout and large lake
and rainbow trout have been taken from its waters. The Flaming
Gorge National Recreation Area has three marinas and many
campgrounds, some of which are open year-round.
The Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is a world-famous
blue-ribbon trout stream. The Little Hole National Recreation Trail
parallels the river 7.3 miles from the Dam to the Little Hole
