East Portal Road in the Wasatch National Forest departs from Murdoch Basin Road and drops down to the Duchesne River Dam and Little Deer Creek Falls. Although not a long trail, at just over 3 miles, plan for slow going since the surface is primarily large cobble rocks, descending roughly 1,000 feet in elevation. Most of the dispersed camping is located at the end of the trail directly next to the Duchesne River Dam. A rock fire ring distinguishes each site. Little Deer Creek Falls is easily seen by foot just off the trail, and the impressive Cataract Gorge is also hikeable.
