Trail Overview

This is a great trail if you want to escape into the Utah backcountry. This high alpine canyon is beautiful and rugged, high clearance only here or you will be scraping the bottom. The trail is made up of mostly volleyball-sized rocks that will make sure you take it slow and easy. The beginning of the trail has a water crossing that can be quite high in the spring, use caution when crossing. As you continue the climb along a shelf road there are two off-camber obstacles that tip toward the edge, take it slow and you will be ok. The rest of the trail continues up the bottom of the canyon with two small streams to cross, ending at a hiking trail you can take up to three alpine lakes and beautiful views.
