Tips

An ATV and hiking trail. The ATV trail only goes for about .9 miles. The mouth of Utah's "Canyon of Gold" stretches before you. From at least 1865, flecks of gold in the creek and veins of gold inside her walls have drawn the hopeful to this canyon by the thousands. For the next 1-2 hours, this guide will introduce you to the life and times of the miners of Bullion Canyon. Numbers in this guide correspond to numbered posts found along the next 2.5 miles of this road. The road is rough in spots but is passable by most two-wheel drive vehicles. Be sure to stop by the mining town on the far side of the bridge! HELP PRESERVE OUR HERITAGE, DO NOT COLLECT ARTIFACTS OR DEFACE BUILDINGS.

It was autumn and the road follows the creek so it was pleasant, but... 1. The All Trails directions are a little off. Keep driving a little past the Google directions. You can't miss the trail head on your right. There is a rail car, pamphlets, shelter, etc. 2. The trail is the road. 3. Most of the attractions listed are just empty spaces where things used to be. 4. This doesn't really seem to be the Bullion Canyon Trail at all. The Forest Service maps show that as trail 074 which starts at the trail head at the bridge. This seems to be the Bullion Canyon - Canyon of Gold Driving Tour. 5. The AllTrails map seems to be a combination of this driving trail and the first 1/2 mile of the actual trail, but shows a loop that doesn't exist on the FS maps and we could not find. Recommendation: Only use this trail up to the bridge if your car can't make it further. Otherwise, just drive up to the bridge where you will see several trail heads and a box with trail maps. We hiked 074 up to the falls. The Bullion Falls are worth the easy 1 mile hike in and the All Trails directions and map to that are accurate. We didn't continue past that, but the Bullion Canyon Trail 074 does seem to go much further.

Never found the trailhead. Followed gravel road up the mountain well past the AllTrails map spot for trailhead. Very disappointed, but will try again when I’m the area. *Maybe someone will post clear number of miles from Fireman’s Park ... the area is beautiful, and I’m sure the waterfalls are too.

Great trail, although a bit steep if one is not used to elevation. The sign to the falls is BEFORE the bridge to the right. It is set back 20ft. And hard to see as one drives by over the bridge to park. There is a great mining town on the far side of the bridge that AllTrails doesn’t mention. Lots of great historical buildings throughout the hillside. There are actually two falls: Cascade ( higher on the wall of the canyon one will see first) then Bullion. There are ropes to help you get down to the waters edge.
