My Trail Reviews (21)
(within last 6 months)
Absolutely gorgeous trail. It is very easy and was recently graded. Highly recommend it if you are in the area. Plan extra time to take in the sights!
Nothing special on its own, however, it does provide access to 2 of the more beautiful trails in the area and also makes a good place to basecamp. You can also see lots of wildlife along this trail if you are paying attention.
Great little trail with incredible camping. Didn't have as much traffic as usual which was nice. It had been graded so the "hardest" part was still 2wd which was a little disappointing, but still highly recommend if you are wanting to take in more of the great views of this part of the Swell.
Beautiful trail. Absolute must-do if you are looking for some history in this part of the Swell. I did notice the review of the washout, however, this trail was easily completed in my TJ, as well as a JL in our group without issue. This is one of those trails that can change drastically with any given storm, unfortunately.
The trail is now open. Forest Service is telling people to watch for fire weakened trees, loose debris, and post fire conditions. Also note that fires are only legal in designated campground with fire rings. Fires are not allowed while dispersed camping!
Norway Flat and all connecting trails are CLOSED due to the Shingle Creek Fire. Please AVOID THE AREA!
I've run this trail in the past and enjoyed it. It is, however, once again, on fire... IT IS CLOSED temporarily. Fire is only 5% contained as of Sunday afternoon (Fire started friday).
Nothing too exciting of a trail. It did have a few good camping options that were all open even on a busy weekend, so it would probably be a bit quieter than other sites in the area. They were all fairly small sites.
Nice little trail to get you closer to the lake (direct access requires another short spur). There was a big campsite at the end, however, this trail sees a lot of traffic so I would be hesitant to camp anywhere along this one.
This is one of the many spurs to access Alexander Lake. It seemed a little less used than the others, but there were still a lot of cars at the end. The campsite at the end was quite nice, but again, could be busy on a weekend. The drive had a few pretty decent views and travels through an old burn scar as well.
Cool trail for the views and you will likely not see another person even on the weekend. The "obstacles" near the end kept things a little interesting, but still weren't anything to worry about. Just enough to pay attention. I could see this trail becoming very hard with a good rain due to the incline/decline.
Very nice peaceful drive on a busy weekend for the area. Didn't see another soul until the return trip. The views were a bit hard to find through the trees but there are a few spots to get a good photo. Camping options were alright. The grounds were not ideal for ground tents but you would likely be alone which is always a bonus. Definitely worth a check out if you are trying to avoid people.
There has been a report of a mudslide on the trail, with the person stating that the trail is now impassable. The section affected is right at Waypoint 7 down to the tunnel. It is stated that the debris of the slide made it down to/close to the tunnel itself. Hopefully, the trail will be repaired soon.
Gives you another nice view of the lake. The camping on this side is nice, but close together. It would be a good option on a weekday but good luck on a weekend.
Nothing too exciting of a trail. Just a nice option to kill some more time, and definitely gets less of a crowd than other trails in the area.
The trail itself is nothing exciting as it is well maintained. The camping could be nice, but you will likely not be alone.
The trail was a bit disappointing as it appears to travel much further according to most maps. However, the camping at the end looked peaceful and isolated from most other camping in the area.
Nothing more than just a spur to a campsite. It does look peaceful, but I bet the bugs would be bad. There are better options but this one is par.
This trail was a bit more satisfying than Iron Mine Lake. The trail was only maintained about halfway so the remaining portion had a few slowdowns with rocky hills and the water crossings. The viewpoint at the end was really nice, but there was already a group there so we just turned around and headed back down.
A little disappointing but it would definitely be away from the crowds if you found a suitable campsite among the rocky ground.
Really nice trail in the Uintas. Gives you access to a lot of different activities. It is well maintained so consider the terrain "boring" but it's worth it if you are looking to escape the city heat and enjoy the mountains.
