Fabulous hike. Great for families with children. Easily 2 hours or less total. Great views and impressive arch. Hardest part is knowing where to start. The road off 191 is not marked and hard to see from the freeway. Heading north from vernal, it's not quite a mile from the steinaker state park road on the left. It will look like it's just a pull off but there is a dirt road that goes off it. If it is muddy you will need an SUV/four wheel drive but we made it in our small Hyundai on dry roads (although some parts worried me and it could easily change as previous mud and traffic could warp it more) Once you hit the green fence, the trail is straight ahead down the gulch. There are roads going left and right. I do not know where those leads but straight ahead got us there easily:)

Lacking signage, but that's what makes is a "secret"

We wandered around other parts near the trail after seeing the beautiful arches. Good trail, easy and quick. Good for a season starter or to take the kids! ❤️

Small Lake to get away from the crowds. A few good campsite. Have to drop down from the Highline Trail

Perfect hike for kids and beginners. Nearly flat, gorgeous scenery, and a quiet lake. But OMG the mosquitoes in July! Would love to do this in the fall before the snow because the swarms of mosquitoes detracted a bit from the hike. They don't care about biting through OFF or clothing!

Nice trail and beautiful arches.

Easy hike took less than 30 mins. Con... Mosquitoes all over the place and OFF doesn't phase the little F'ers...

We went on the trail late June and it was quite wet, with most the trail being a water flow. It was however a beautiful hike and worth it. Bring snacks, we forgot ours.

Troup 250 hiked this trail the 3rd week of July, 2015. We started at the west fork of Whiterocks and 50 miles later came out at Uintah Canyon. It was hard but the scenery was spectacular!

I was not too impressed. i was trying to do an overnighter up to red lake. I made it to Teepee Lake with no problem and decided to push on to Red Lake. About a mile past Teepee the trail just disappears. Camped out in the only suitable spot I could find, glad I had a bivy. From about Teepee to where ever I made it to the mosquitoes were ridiculous and I probably now have Zika virus. If you are looking just to get away from people I recommend. If you are looking for cool views situated alongside high mountain lakes don't waste your time. Although I never made it to Red Lake so who knows. Good Luck.

Great trail and an easy morning hike.
