Trail Information

Highlights

Situated high in the Wasatch Mountains near Daniel's Summit lies this incredible off-road trail. Taking you from the Hobble Creek Canyon area over to Strawberry Reservoir, this route has no shortage of photographic opportunities, miles of side trails, and endless spots to park and spend some time under the stars. Its relative distance from civilization makes this a popular trail in the summer, while providing snowmobiling opportunities in the winter. With the reservoir so close, this is a popular trail for water-goers to run all weekend with their basecamp set up down by the lake. If you are looking for a little more seclusion, head over to the first portion of this trail where you are less likely to see another soul all day long. Camping options are endless from towing a trailer to hanging from the trees in a hammock. Once you reach the ridge line, you will be treated with views for miles ranging from Mount Timpanogos to the west, Strawberry Peak directly to the north, and Square Top Mountain to the east towering over Strawberry Reservoir. Whatever reason you have for visiting this area, this trail surely is not one to miss with such incredible views in a small amount of driving.

No real obstacles, just miles and miles and miles and miles of loose baby heads on steep terrain. I'm talking oceans of baby heads. Just when you think it's going to stop, no chance. You can't even see dirt on this trail because it's just buried in baby heads. The views are nice but the driver won't get much chance to enjoy it, too busy dodging differential busters. I'd rate this trail "annoying" and certainly more difficult than two.

Excellent views abound, however as noted it's much more challenging than a Trails Offroad 2/10 for the first two miles. 4WD, high clearance and low range is required. We had the unfortune of having to pass people on the climb up to the ridge and found it difficult to get two full size vehicles side by side and the consequences of messing up were very high. Due to the climb, loose rock, narrowness and the shelf road the first two miles would be better rated at a 3-4 for Trails Offroad with the rest of the road being a 2. It's probably better to break this trail up into two on the site, someone could easily get in over their head in an under equipped vehicle.

The trail is passable, and the tree has been cut down, but man… this trail has way too many 8-12 inch rocks to be enjoyable.
