I was at the top of Guardsman Pass a few times. One time was just to see it and hike, one time was to do shuttle laps on our mountain bikes and one time was to camp in my truck.
It's awesome every time.

When I was there, the colorful leaves rivaled the leaf-peeping in Vermont! Really worth it if you are in Utah in the fall!

Make sure you go that route to the cute town of Midway. Spectacular views the entire way. Used to be gravel, now paved with huge homes and hotel near the top.

A must see if you are in the Park City or Heber areas during the fall. Beautiful aspens and majestic views. Bring a camera and a sweater.
