Trail Overview

This trail has amazing 360-degree views, but ultimately you'll climb to a point where you won't be able to pass unless you're on a dirt bike or maybe a true off-road built side-by-side. Decent amount of climbing, and no gnarly obstacles per se, but high clearance is needed. If you do the loop it will drop you down by the Payson City landfill. The views of both the Utah, Juab, and Goshen valleys are stunning. If you're on a smaller vehicle with good suspension then you can continue up the mountain and connect onto the West Crest trail.


You will come across steep climbs and boulders. Ultimately comes to a point that is impassable with full sized vehicles or larger SxS.
