Getting There

This trail is minimally developed. Trail markers are all along this trail and are made from the bottoms of soda cans nailed to trees. These marker are only on the downhill side of the trees. It should not be a problem following the trail in the summer when you can see the trail. However in winter when snow covers the trail and when there are no tracks to follow, It will be somewhat difficult to follow this trail when hiking downhill because of the lack of downhill markers. Overcoming this would require constantly looking behind you for the markers to verify you are on the trail. Detail can be found here. http://www.farmington.utah.gov/departments/parks-and-rec/parks/trails/spring-creek-future/ The trailhead is clearly marked and is a few hundred feet south of the parking area. Just follow the road to the south.
