Things to do
Whether you want to enjoy the beauty of the new fallen snow in the quiet back country on snowshoes, or by having the fresh powder cling to your eyelashes as you make your way down your favorite ski run, living in Timber Lakes Estates is a great place to start. Not only do we have the “Best snow on Earth” here in Utah, we have 13 of the finest ski resorts (www.utah.com) , snowmobiling trails (www.fs.fed.us), cross country courses (www.utah.com), and 2002 Winter Olympic event venues. (www.utah.com/olympics). You can shred your way down the Park City Mountains in the morning and push your nerves to their limit on an Olympic Bobsled run in the afternoon.
Maybe you prefer to start your day off at a slower pace and play right around your own gorgeous Timber Lakes cabin. The average annual snowfall at Timber Lakes is 70 inches which allows for plenty of sledding, snowshoeing and, snowball fights.
If you prefer speed with your site seeing you will love the snowmobile access we have from the Timber Lakes property to the Uinta National Forest (www.fs.fed.us)thanks to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who allows Property owners and guests special use of an access trail across their property. Once you hit National Forest land you have access to over 500,000 acres of snowmobiling and some 220 miles of groomed trails.
You won’t miss out on any of your favorite water sports while living in Timber Lakes Estates. Within a 15 minute drive you can find yourself fishing, jet skiing, wake boarding and even wind surfing on some of the best lakes and rivers this state has to offer.
Motorized water sports are allowed at Jordanelle, Strawberry, and Deer Creek reservoirs. With an average of 226 days of sunshine per year in Northern Utah, days at the lake can be plentiful.
If you prefer the quiet of fishing and canoeing you can enjoy one of the hundreds of lakes and streams, found in the Uinta Mountains. Some of these are easy to enjoy, such as Mirror Lake while others take an adventurous soul and a couple of days hiking.
Fishing around Timber Lakes is plentiful and enjoyable. The Provo River (www.utah.com/fish/provo_river) is just minutes away and offers some of the best fishing the state has to offer. Whether you prefer Browns, or Rainbows this is the place for you. With a typical fish running 17” or greater, bragging rights come easily.
Some like to enjoy the cool mountain air on a quiet wooded trail bird watching while others like to sink the perfect putt for birdie on one of the countries most beautiful golf courses. If either of these mountain activities excites you, Timber Lakes Estates has you near both.
You will never have to travel far to get in a quick 18 holes while living here in Timber Lakes. Wasatch County(www.golfwasatch.com) boasts 5 beautiful courses with the new Red Ledges course coming soon. Here in the Wasatch mountains golf is an experience that allows you to enjoy some world class courses as well as some beautiful scenery and wildlife.
Mountain biking has become another reason to enjoy Utah’s outdoors. Many of the ski resorts offer mountain biking trails (www.utah.com)during the skiing off season with chair lift rides to the top. If this sounds a little too adventurous for you, try a nice ride through the Timber Lakes Estates on any of our many well maintained trails (roads).
If “huntin” as we say it here in Utah is something you enjoy, there are many areas right outside of the Timber Lakes Estates where you can go to “bag the Big One”. Please remember that there is no hunting or discharging of fire arms within the Timber Lakes community. To see available hunting information go to www.wildlife.utah.gov
One of the advantages to living and visiting in the mountains is the ability to go hiking just outside your own door. Within the Timber Lakes Estates there is beautiful hiking available in the community’s common areas (www.timberlakesutah.com). If you’re looking for something a little more physical and adventurous you won’t find any shortage just outside of our property boundaries in the Uinta National Forest(www.fs.fed.us) Quick day trips and longer hikes are all around giving you the chance to enjoy as much nature as you can handle.`
