Rocky and rugged ATV trail that climbs up into the alpine in Mineral Fork to the old Wasatch Mine. Trail is fairly steep and has a lot of loose rocks that will challenge your climbing ability and leave you pushing quite a bit. Descending is a fun relentless rock garden from the mine all the way back to your car. This is the only trail open to motorized use in big cottonwood canyon.


Uinta-Wasatch National Forest has officially closed this trail for the summer of 2017 because of major winter damage
