Disclosure: this was my first time mountain biking (though I am in decent shape, thanks Peloton). This trail seemed pretty tough. Going west from the trailhead definitely some sections where had to walk my bike uphill (and a few where I had to walk downhill). Also some sandy sections I couldn't pedal through. Did better coming back east, though I skipped the last little bit going down to US 24 since it seemed like the climb back up would be really rough. I am guessing a more experienced rider would have had less difficulty. That being said, scenery was beautiful and I had a great time.

We did the short loop on Forest road #207, leaving from the Torrey water storage tanks. I think about 5 miles. Some rocky climbs and some sand mush but over nice place to ride. spectacular scenery. this is a small portion of the Great Western Trail which appears to be for ATVs.

Definitely not an easy hike. Almost as challenging if not more than Delano. Missed the trail on several occasions. Due to time & kids complaining unfortunately did not make all the way to the top. Worth the hike. Beautiful views. Just expect to take lots of breaks & check the map at every trail mark u see. Will attempt at another time.

A short but enjoyable hike. The red rock is gorgeous. You pretty much scramble all the way to the end, but never is it difficult. In fact, that's what makes it so much fun. The trees growing out of the side of the cliff face and the one tree growing out of a rock is pretty cool.

Very steep sections on the way up. Don't take teenagers that aren't into hiking. Scouts got tired after 2 miles and went back.

Great short trail for a quick hike. Just follow the creek up and it eventually ends in a box canyon with some nice view.

I stopped and hiked here to stretch my legs on a long drive. Perfect. Beautiful and secluded. The scramble is really fun. Ends at a dry canyon fall of red rock.

Nice little hike. Good scenery. Some big rocks to climb or find a way around, but it's possible to do either.

If you are staying in the Sunglow Campground, this hike is a must. Takes less than an hour and is fun for the whole family. A bit of scrambling over or around rocks is required, but nothing too difficult. Best part is at the end of the hike you get to see a tree growing out of a rock!

Great 5 mile hike from trail head parking lot to Puffer Lake, Utah. This is a section of the Skyline National Recreation Trail. There is running water in August to fill canteens (38.34990, -112.37372 and more water at 38.34646, -112.37192). This is an "up & back" trail, so going to Puffer Lake is mostly going down hill. Plenty of camping at lake. Very pretty. WARNINGS: Almost the entire trail is at 10,000 ft. so expect immediate fatigue. Also, DO NOT MISS FORK in the trail at (38.34186, -112.36347) or you will find yourself on top of Lake Peak at 11,300 ft. as we did.

The Sevier county highpoint is Fish Lake Hightop. The high point is just north of the popular, and aptly named, Fish Lake. The most commonly hiked route to the summit is via Pelican Canyon, from near the lake. The Pelican Canyon route is about 8.5 miles and 2500' of gain to reach the summit. A much shorter approach is via Hancock Flat, and is the route described here. Using this route shortens the hike to about 7 or 7.5 miles and an easier 1100' of gain. Those with ATV's or jeep skills can drive to less than a mile and a couple of hundred feet of the summit.

Fish Lake Hightop is similar to the Aquarius Plateau to the south. Once on top, it is a gently rolling, remarkably flat plain at 11,000'. The area is stunning in the fall when the leaves begin to change, but a good hike from spring through fall. The road to the trailhead should be accessible by most all vehicles. Even though most of the hike is on a 4x4 road, it is infrequently traveled and still offers a great day out.

Nice trail for ATV's. Expect a lot of ATV traffic. Lots of wildlife, great scenery. This is part of the Paiute Trail. Fairly good road but you do gain altitude quickly.
