Trail Information

Highlights

FS Road 132 traverses a segment of the Uinta National Forest between the Wasatch Mountains and Strawberry Reservoir. It climbs steadily to its mid-point, immersing the overland traveler in Aspen and Pine forest with the smell of fresh mountain air and the pleasing sound of bubbling creeks There are frequent breaks among the trees, opening fantastic views to the south and west of snow-capped Wasatch peaks, including Spanish Fork Peak, Provo Peak, and Mount Timpanogos.

This is one of my favorite scenic trails in the area. I would definitely consider it to be on the lower side of moderate for technical difficulty. That said, there are some trail conditions and obstacles that would be hard for a vehicle without ground clearance. This time around, there were many loose boulders on the east side of the trail, 8-10" in height that were impossible to drive around. Also, on the west side, the roads were very bumpy and rutted out from early season driving and there were probably about 4 large trees downed directly across the trail that needed to be moved or driven over. It's nothing that should deter too many people but just know that turn arounds aren't everywhere so you may need to back out of a tricky spot if you can't traverse it. The views and the camping opportunities are the real payoff though. I'm constantly surprised that there aren't more people up there whenever I drive. Highly recommend for a nice few hour off road drive

Truly amazing ride! Definitely bumpy and my lift was needed but 10 out of 10 recommend. Stunning views and nothing technically challenging enough this very new off roader couldn't easily handle.

Peak foliage made this a really awesome experience. Definitely take the time to drive this road. The trail is pretty bumpy but nothing very challenging in terms of obstacles. We aired down for comfort and I was glad we did. One thing to note: the rockslide at Waypoint 2 is no longer there. USFS must have fixed it at some point as the road went right through this area with no issue.

Ran this trail as a weekend camping trip with my wife, I had been up left fork part way a few times and it was pretty good, I drive a bone stock 2006 Chevy trailblazer with a factory rear locker and I left it in 4hi for the entire trail. If it was wet that would change quickly however. There were a few sections where trees hanging across the trails would have made it interesting for an overly tall or wide vehicle. Good trail overall with some fun camping at the end.

Just drove this trail with my Ford F-150. Great mountain road in Utah County. Started mid afternoon and back home in early evening. Not too crowded for being a Labor Day weekend. Watch for cattle on the second half. Thanks for the instructions. I was glad I took a printed copy. The trail does get narrow. It was tight when approaching vehicles and I had to fold in my mirror a few times. Everyone was considerate. My picture shows a time (at point 9) when we parked and enjoyed the view.
