Trail Overview

This is a side trail that travels through the forest down from the intersection of Bench Road and Manti Cyn Road. It is wide enough for full-size SxSs and Jeeps. It does have an optional 66-inch gated section. The trail, while mostly downhill, does have several uphill rocky sections that appear just after some deep mud holes. Be sure to be in low gear and in 4-wheel drive and you will have no problem getting up the climb. While there are a few open areas that are good for lunch or breaks, most of this route is in the trees. At the end of the trail, you will have a great view of Manti and the Mormon Temple. From the start just off Bench Road to the end at State Route 89, the distance is just under 9 miles.

Difficulty

This trail is a solid 5 because of the many mud holes and short but steep climbs.
