Trail Overview

This trail is a low risk, high pay out trail with lots of jaw dropping views. The trail could honestly be done in a 2WD sedan if you don't explore any of the side trails. There are lots of picnicking and dispersed camping sites along the way. The trail runs from Tibble Fork reservoir in American Fork canyon and comes out at Midway by Wasatch State Park. The full trail is graded dirt with some washboards (please use 4High if you have it to keep these from getting worse) and can be ran in either direction. There are some tighter sections than others where it will be a little more tricky to get off to the side to let any oncoming vehicles pass, but be patient and courteous and others will do the same.
