Mirror Lake Scenic Byway SR150 Utah

Anyone been over this route before? We were thinking of taking this route when we depart Evanston Wyoming on our way to Moab, Utah. It looks to be a relatively subdued mountain pass, ie no crazy switchbacks or super steep grades... is that correct? We'll be traveling in an older 35' DP with no engine brake (only 20k gvw).

It also appears to be pretty scenic based on google earth and some pictures I've seen on the net... is it worth the travel time to go through there, or is there a more scenic route from Evanston to Moab?

cheers

Wish I could help you with this one but it has been about 35 years since we camped up there. We pulled a 19' Terry TT with a Chev 350 c.i. 4x4 and had no problem. The summit is 10,200' per my map. We accessed Hwy150 from the south and left the same way. Sorry, I can't remember more.

UPDATE:

Just wanted to update this thread with our experience driving across this scenic byway.

While not as scenic as some of the other places we had been on our 6200 mile whirlwind tour of the west, this drive was definitely worth taking on our trip from Colter Bay Wyoming to Moab Utah. The altitude was lofty at I think something like 10,800 ft, but not really a whole lot of super spectacular views... not like what you see at the Grand Tetons anyways. The road was in good shape, and easy to navigate in our motorhome.

cheers
