Foreman Hollow Nature Trail is a 4 mile loop trail located near Heber City, UT that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and camping and is accessible from June until October.
July 30 2016. There are 2 things I liked a lot about the Foreman trail; it is a loop trail, so you don't have to see where you've just been a 2nd time, and also that it is a true intermediate hike.
At the Lodgepole campground entrance there is a parking area for about 10 cars just before the fee station. We paid the day use $8 fee but maybe this isn't mandatory. Walk north along the paved campground rd that is parallel to the hwy, at the end of the loop go around a locked road gate and continue on the dirt road. A sign about 100 meters farther shows the turnoff to the trail on your left. [Turning here will take you around the loop clockwise. If you want to go counterclockwise, keep going past the primitive road turnoff and you will meet the trail in about 1/4 mile]. This is a primitive road at 1st. About 100 meters farther, go through another gate and then reach the trailhead proper, to the right.
The biggest negative on this hike is that there are quite a few fallen trees across the trail mostly in the middle third. Sometimes you can easily climb over or duck under, a couple times you have to make short detours around. I estimate an extra 30 min hike time from the trees on the trail.
It took us a little less than 3 hrs for the hike including a 15 min break to eat something. Coming down the small creek drainage in the last hour was the prettiest part. We saw a couple Ruffed Grouse along the trail there. We saw one deer. Some flowers but not a lot now. There are a few cows but they are skittish and run off as you get close. There was no running water in the creeks or spring at this time. We didn't meet any other hikers on the trail but could see boot prints. A nice hike.
not a bad trail, but go early in the day. it was overly warm at 830 am. Right now the wild flowers are in full bloom and that is a sight.
it might get a little to buggy here soon as well.
oh and several different types of butterflies everywhere enjoying the flowers.
