Road is closed Nov 1st through June 1st so hiking in April left something to be desired. Check out our Vlog review: https://youtu.be/5KoXzcrs4C0

Easy fun off-roading

A drive everyone should do once in their life for the view. Too many cars for hiking it. I started in Salt Lake, went to the top, then came down into Tooele.

Great trail!

Easy to find paved parking lot that had a bathroom (though bathroom was disgusting and don't have any toilet paper).

Trail is a moderate climb, at least for the first 1.5 mikes or so, which was all we did. Went on Jan 12, and I'd say microspikes or snowshoes are a must at this time!

Multiple opportunities for great views. Much of the first mile or so is shaded. No water on trail.

This trail is Not for large vehicles, you must pass threw a 40 inch gate to use it. Lots of wild life, bear included.

A few years ago this was a great trail. The Rock Crawlers have chewed it up so bad ATVs now get beaten up trying to get over the large boulders . Makes a good hiking trail but we (ATV'S) lost a good trail from misuse. It was to be a 40 inch only but managers didn't do a good job of management.

Went with my sister 2 days after the season's first big snowfall. Easy to find trailhead thanks to AllTrails' directions sent to phone! : ) Us Midwesterners were on vacation in Utah and looking for a good winter hike -- this fit the bill. Steady uphill with scenic views of White Pine Lake and watershed, plus snowcapped mountains and ridges. Muddy conditions were exacerbated due to fat-tire motorbikers, but otherwise a great trail.

Completed this drive often. Always spectacular. Early mornings and sunset is my fav. Tons of ATV's and deer hunting. Mountain Bike, Dirt Bike, Subaru Outback and truck all work great. May have to be patient with slow or inexperienced traffic. Be careful!

It was a blast taking my 2007 Dakota, I didn't even need to be on 4x4, although my truck got Firestone's mud tires. It was quite busy, lots of ATV and pickup traffic.

Really enjoyed the early season snow. The views are stunning. Trails are easy to moderate. But fun and fast!

This trail is also accessible from the trial lake trailhead parking lot. (Gps photo attached) Perfect hike for an overcast and cool day. Rarely see anyone. You'll hike past multiple lakes before climbing to the top of the mountains. Then hike over the mountain tops before dropping down to Big Elk Lake. Hiking the last stretch on a hot and sunny day is exhausting.

We took our 2011 RAV4 up. First time ever off roaring so it was a little intense but fun!

What a spectacular view of this copper mine. The drive up Butterfield Canyon about freaked my wife out, single lane and a sheer drop over the edge. The trip to the overlook was a gravel road with some rough patches which a car could make but slow as you go or it would be easy to do some damage.

We drove atv's from parking area at soapstone basin until you get to Iron mine lake. First half of a mile you are on pavement then graded dirt road that a car could drive for the next 5 miles. After you fork to go toward mill hollow or keep going straight toward the lake it gets rocky the rest of the way and slows you down significantly. We went through two flooded areas that were about a foot deep at its deepest, their span was about 20 feet across. Best parts of the trail! Finally when you arrive at the lake you are greeted with a serene untouched mountain lake with lillies and a large meadow. It is quiet and beautiful. We turned back to the parking area whole trip was about 4 hours. Great for going somewhere new to you.

There is no longer winter access to this trail. Farmington Canyon road is no longer plowed in winter, and you will find the gate locked early in the season just above Farmington Pond. We love skiing around the Farmington Flats area, and we miss the winter access! But it's still a fun little mountain biking loop when the road is open. Our six year old had no problem with this trail, and was happy to see a little fawn along the way. Beautiful area. Narrow winding dirt road with steep drop offs.

Top gate still closed as of 6/25/17

This trail is misrepresented by All Trails. It's not easy, especially the first ~1/4 mile and it's pretty heavily trafficked, not moderately trafficked. Don't get me wrong; it's a blast though. Lake is fun. Kiddos like to catch salamanders there.

The directions above are incorrect. If you go 158 miles west of Kamas you will be someplace in Nevada! FR 035 begins 10.5 miles east of Kamas on highway 150. After the first mile or two it becomes extremely rough. We made it about 4 miles in our 4wd Tacoma before we gave up - just too hard on the vehicle and our bodies! You will need 4wd to even attempt this road at all, and very high ground clearance. And a lot of time. Very slow going.

Great views, nice trail. Ran into a pair of sketchy folks on dirt bikes who asked a lot of questions and wanted to use my phone charger inside of my jeep, so be cautious of that. Otherwise recommended.

Drove up butterfield canyon and once the pavement stopped and the road forks we parked and hiked up. Took us about an hour and a half from the car to the mine overlook. And about an hour coming down.

Crappiest hike ever. The whole thing is a gravel road with vehicles going by the whole time. And the side of the road is littered with beer bottles and food wrappers. The view of the mine is great but if that's what you want then drive up to the top like everyone else and find somewhere else to hike.

Great ride though I only went about 10 miles up the road. Lots off side trails, camping, hiking, and more. Its a gravel road that leads up into one of the National Forests.

Take the family camping, horse back riding, hiking, mountain biking, four wheeling, or even on a sunday drive with the windows open and the roof down or off. smells are great and sights are fantastic.

Great for drivers new to off roaring. The views are beautiful.

Drove up the Farmington canyon side and the connecting road to Bountiful canyon is finally open. Great easy route point to point! The Jeep trail at buckland flats has also been repaired at the top. I took a drive down that and it gets pretty bad through some spots but is doable with a good off-road vehicle.
The exit above the B is still VERY sketchy.

Nice easy trail, great views all the way up.

Beautiful flowers in July. It is well maintained trail. We saw a lot of animals on our trip. Our family had a lot of fun!

A moderately easy walk up a trail surrounded by wildflower fields and wooded areas. We encountered dirt bike and quad riders but no other hikers. Pretty and nothing strenuous. And an added bonus, the bugs seemed to stay in the fields and off of the trail...unless you stop for too long.

Best local trail. The skyline drive entrances on the Farmington and Bountiful side are still closed. I've been up 4 or 5 times in the past 2 weeks checking to see if they're open. I'd really love to be able to do the whole route.
