Go from the desert to the pines in one incredible trail. Link Canyon is a 28-mile overland-type trail leading up to the famous Skyline Dive within Fishlake National Forest. The route begins as a bumpy gravel road leading from the small town of Emery, Utah. About 6 miles in, the trail begins its steep climb up the towering cliffs. You will need low-range gearing and high clearance on loose dirt climbs. The trail has very tight switchbacks, so NO TRAILERS on this route. Once you reach the sprawling meadows above 8500 feet, the trail becomes easier. There are countless campsites within the pine and aspen trees. Go slow and watch for the wildlife so plentiful in this area. The upper elevations are closed during the winter. The gate at the beginning of the steep climb will be closed during these times.
