Climbing up from the small town of Sterling, UT, trail 47, Six Mile Ponds is a scenic escape into the Manti-La Sal National Forest. The trail begins in a rocky canyon with the scenic Six Mile Creek flowing alongside. Seemingly endless switchbacks wind through the pine and aspen trees up the western slope before reaching the picturesque Six Mile Ponds recreation area. The camping and day-use area is a beautiful spot for a picnic or to pull out the fishing poles. There is a vault toilet, a large parking area with picnic tables, and a large camp area in the back near the shore of the lake. The trail continues climbing and becomes rougher as you climb, but it can be completed in 2WD in dry conditions. There can be snow or long muddy sections in the early season, June and July. You will need 4x4 and high clearance in these conditions.
