There is just something amazing about driving above the tree line. Maybe it is the forever views or the thin air. We usually associate that experience with Colorado, but it can be found in Utah. The Paiute Trail in Utah's Fishlake National Forest begins near the Mount Holly Ski Area with plenty of dispersed camping opportunities and several nearby campgrounds. The trail climbs steadily northward, passing just west of Delano Peak, the highest point in the Tushar Mountain Range. While the road is not technical, there are narrow shelf roads and steep inclines to be climbed and descended. The trail tops out above 11,400 feet at its midpoint. The north end of the Paiute Trail intersects with the nearly as scenic Kimberly Trail.
