Trail Overview

The Gold Gulch Loop connects the Gold Gulch To Little Pork Lake Trail with Piute Reservoir Overlook Trail. It's the trail on top that goes furthest to the west. There is one area where you cross some rocks, but it's a short area, just barely off-camber, and not difficult. There are some hills with loose rocks and dirt, and while they're steep, they're not difficult either. On the north end of this loop, the trail winds through and around some pine trees, which makes for a tight fit in some places. Don't forget, to off-road in UT you need to have the online education course certificate as well as the OHV sticker.
