Great ride from Pineview to Ogden Canyon. Pineview is easy enough to take a novice rider but the descent to Ogden Canyon and back out is intermediate to expert. This trail allows dirt bikes. Hikers please step aside to allow riders to pass. Riders keep your speeds down! Weekends will be busy keep it 2nd gear.

Good trail scenic trail. My wife and I went up through AF canyon and ended in Midway. Great for beginners I had no issues in my Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 2 inch spacer lift. I believe that any SUV could make this trail with no problems. Some good camping spots along the way.

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.

My husband, 18 month old son and I hiked this yesterday, Dec. 29th.
It was hard to find the trail at first but once we found it it was a great hike. You end up at squaw peak forest road.
I would recommend bringing snowshoes for the 2nd half of the trail!

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.

Like most trails in Utah this starts as a week maintained dirt road and eventually turns into a really nice mix of rocky, rutted, and muddy trail. Some places you have to back up if you meet another vehicle but its not bad.

Awesome afternoon drive. Lots of cool colors up there today when I went up!

My GPS took me up Spring Oaks Drive where the trailhead was a little hard to see, but there was a sign that said something about no motorized vehicles. it was in a neighborhood and I wasn’t sure where to park… I was lucky that someone is outside who was really friendly and told me I could park just on the curb pointed out the trailhead. The trail itself was nice! Pretty rocky and pretty dry, so running with a little more challenging.

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 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.

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.

Not much of a hiking trail. Just an ATV road.

Awesome place to watch a sunset!!

The dirt road to the water tank is closed so I had to park up and around the corner, adds about 0.5 miles one way. The trail doesn't get too steep but there's a few places with a lot of loose rocks, especially if you connect up to the summit. But I didn't see a single person and the view is worth it!

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!

Fun little trail. At the top I connected to trail 759 to ascend to the summit with a beautiful view to Spanish Fork Peak and Mount Nebo in the distance.

In and out through the trees, a few puddles to splash through. It's an easy drive except for the mosquitos.

Some really cool tree covered areas! Also some really dull open plains with nothing to look at. All in all was still a fun trail

Very mellow, decently shaded. Nice because it was rather quiet, but not a whole lot to see and it ends pretty quickly. Looks like there's opportunity to continue in other directions at the top.

we only went about 1/3 of the way through but it was very pretty i did not like that you can hear the road most of the way and there is no where to stop as far as we went

The trail is still closed due to the fire last year.

I did not four wheel or other vehicle. Drove up as far as I could in a small car. Parked and walked up to short of the 8500 ft level when snow blocked even my way (I did not have crampons so I would not slid downhill), so I turned around. Trail was mostly easy. Trail dust from sidebys, 4 wheelers and motorcycles was pretty bad on the way down (later in the day). Would like to finish the hike as it appears I was .6 miles short of the point. Oh well, later in the summer.

I just tried this hike for the first time and really enjoyed it. There are lots of wildflowers and butterflies right now. It ends in a grassy-meadow area between peaks with a really pretty view of some snow-capped (for now) peaks in the distance. From there you can take trails to your right or left for a longer hike. To begin the hike, park where Center St dead ends and walk along the dirt road until just past the water shed where you will come to a gate - take the trail off to your left just before the gate (trail not marked).

Ive came up here plenty of times and the view has always been incredible the trail to get up here is blocked by the snow sometimes but if you can make it up here it is worth it

beautiful vistas

I run/hike this trail almost every week with my dogs. It's starts moderately on a dirt road it quickly narrows to a rocky trail. Middle section is super Rocky, a lot of loose rocks. Makes it hard to run. Good area to slow down and hike. Save the ankles. The top reaches a T at the pole Haven dirt road. If you take it to the left you can follow the pole Haven Road all the way to squaw Peak. Take a right and you'll head down to hobble Creek Canyon. Can finish the run on pavement out of hobble creek, back to town, returning to the trailhead to get a challenging 14 mile run.
