This is primarily a hike trail used to connect to some High Uinta Trails, and is a nice hike with only a few steep sections.

On a bike, this is a difficult and rocky climb, but challenging and fun to some. This is the preferred way to get to the Shingle Creek trail for some wild expert downhill fun. You can climb it all with some skill, though a couple creek crossings are rocky and difficult. This is one of the few trails that you can ride in the High Uintaa
