From Oakley, head east on the Weber River Road. Follow it about 11 miles until the pavement ends. The road forks there, and the main road swings to the right (south) toward Smith-Morehouse Reservoir. Don't go that way. Stay on the dirt road that goes east, which will end at Holiday Park.

Whatever you do... DON'T try to access the trail in the winter with a truck. You will get stuck. Didn't make it to the trailhead. Five star rating for the experience.

Super mellow trail until the last two miles, then you get your real workout in

Relatively short but challenging trail. Early July made for challenging river crossings with full packs. Lots of deadfall present for the ascent to Abe's Lake after the final river crossing. I'd rate this trail as challenging rather than moderate. Sparse camping options at the lake but beautiful views.
