Traveling up into to foothills of the Manti-La Sal Mountains, Slaughter Flats is a moderate scenic tour past old mines and sprawling panoramas of the mountain peaks. From the northern trailhead, the trail travels along narrow rocky ledges with countless dead-end off-shoots to old mine sites. By following the track closely, you'll safely travel past Yellow Circle mines and the relics left behind. You can stop at the old foundation with a chimney and a safe door. The old fenced-off mine entrances and a rusty truck dump are further up the twisting ledges. The trail is ideal for stock 4x4s with high clearance and durable offroad tires. The trail has numerous loose rocky hill climbs that require low-range gearing. The brush is tight, so you will get pinstripes. No camping was found along this route.
