      Directions to the 2014 Rainbow Gathering in Utah in the Uinta National Forest

      - All roads are of good quality, wide and gravel but very busy - BE AWARE. There are many other recreational users such as trucks pulling heavy trailer, many off road vehicles, and local traffic. The gravel roads can be very, very DUSTY making visibility difficult. Please be safe, take it slow, watch for traffic and wildlife.

      From Points South of Salt Lake City: From Interstate 15 South of Salt Like City Exit Hwy 189 North at the south end of Provo, Utah. Drive approximately 27 miles north to Heber City. Or follow directions from Salt Lake City.

      From Points East of Salt Lake City: From Interstate 80 east of Salt Lake City, take the Park City /US-40 East/US-189 South exit and drive south approximately 16 miles to Heber City. Or follow directions from Salt Lake City.


      Best Route for Busses from Heber City, Utah: Off Route 40 north of town take State Road 32 towards Jordenelle State Park. Then pick up SR 35 in Frances, UT and go east about 15 miles on SR 35. Right after milemarker 15, look for Forest Service Road 054 (FS 54) on the right towards Mill Hollow Reservoir. This gravel road around the reservoir and campground can be congested and can be dusty. Drive about 13 miles and look for FS 901 on the left. Welcome HOME! If you come to the intersection of FS 83 and 54, you have gone too far – go back on FS 54 about ½ mile


      From Heber City, Utah via Route 40 and Center Street/Lake Creek Road (Free Range Sheep on this road as well as sheepdogs: Head east at intersection of Main St. (State Road 40) and Center Street/Lake Creek Road. Travel east for 15 miles on a paved road until you reach the Uinta Forest Service boundary. At the FS boundary, the road turns to gravel and becomes Forest Service Road 083 (FS 83). Follow FS 83 about 5 miles to an intersection (the T) where FS 83 and FS 54 meet. Bear left onto FS 54 travel less than 1/2 mile to FS 901 on the right.

      Welcome Home!


      From Salt Lake City via Interstate 80 and State Road 32 (Kamas, UT) and State Road 35 (Hanna, UT) – less congestion: Route 35 (SR 35) comes in from the north and is good for drivers that don‘t need to shop and want to avoid traffic. Total mileage is about 35 miles; it is about 15 miles once you are on SR 35. From 80: Head towards Kamas on SR 32. Pick up SR 35 in Frances, UT and go east about 14 miles on SR 35. Look for Forest Service Road 054 (FS 54) on the right towards Mill Hollow Reservoir. This gravel road around the reservoir and campground can be congested and can be dusty. Drive about 13 miles and look for FS 901 on the left. Welcome HOME! If you come to the intersection of FS 83 and 54, you have gone too far – go back on FS 54 about ½ mile


      From Fruitland, UT (just west of Fruitland 4 miles or so) via State Road 40 –probably most congested route into gathering: At mile marker 58 on Route 40, head north onto Currant Creek Road. Be aware of this turn, it is a sharp turn and there is often heavy traffic and it is known for wrecks. Follow Currant Creek Road through state wildlife and private land to the Uinta National Forest boundary about 8 miles where it becomes Forest Service Road 471 (FS 471).


      BE AWARE can be very dusty. Stay on FS 471 about 14 miles around the Currant Creek Reservoir but not into the campground, pass by the campground fork and bear right onto FS 82. Go up the hill to the intersection bear right at the “T” and take a right onto FS 83; go about 8 miles to the next intersection of FS 83 and FS 54. Take right onto FS 54; travel less than ½ mile to FS 901 on the right.

      Welcome Home!
