Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway


Take a drive through the Flat Tops Wilderness, which is often credited as being one of the places that inspired the ethos of preservation in the West. Cut through the heart of the original White River Plateau Timberland Reserve, set aside in the late 19th century as the second unit of what eventually became the National Forest system.
