Trail Overview

This is another full-width trail to get you a little deeper into the Fishlake National Forest, a little further off the beaten path, and a little closer to elk and deer who call this area home during the spring, summer, and fall. This trail is also part of Paiute Side Trail 53. It's a good trail. The rocks you encounter require good ground clearance, but they're 12 inches or less in most places. There are some areas of erosion, but unless it's recently rained, they won't be a problem or be wet. There is evidence of springs across this trail, i.e., a water trough for wildlife and cattle which graze here in the summer. The flowers are vibrant in mid-July. The colors in this area are amazing in the fall. There is evidence of a fire that ravaged this area long ago, and in places, the Forest Service personnel have gathered burned timber, piled it, and burned it. There are still lots of dead and downed trees that need to be removed, but at least they've started the process here. Don't forget to get your online education course certificate to off-road legally in Utah, as well as your OHV sticker.

Difficulty

This is an easy trail with minimal rocks less than 12 inches in most places.
