Trail Overview

This is a scenic drive that follows along a ridgeline in the high desert of Tooele Valley and drops down into a canyon entering the aspen groves. Warning: The trail has a lot of tight areas along cliff sides and through the brush. It is not recommended to take a full-size vehicle. Scratches are likely, it was tight in a Grand Cherokee. The trail has a lot of off-camber areas along drop-offs. There are many larger rocks along the trail, bigger ground clearance is recommended. There are a couple of places to disperse camp along this trail. The majority of the camp areas are within the scenic forest. This area is particularly gorgeous during the fall with many colored leaves. You will often see wildlife. The trail crosses the Stansbury Front Dirtbike trail. The trail ends at the border with the Deseret Peak Wilderness. It is not legal to continue past the sign into the wilderness with motorized vehicles or bicycles. The complete trail is not passable in the snow.


Rocks up to 12" in areas and off camber sections scattered throughout the trail.
