From Vernal, travel north on Hwy 191 about 36 miles to its intersection with UT Hwy 44. At the well-signed intersection, turn right (you will actually still be on Hwy 191) and travel another 10 miles. Immediately after crossing over Flaming Gorge Dam, a signed right will take you down to the access parking area. One needs to park several hundred feet above the river and walk a few minutes down a well traveled series of switchbacks to the boat launch ramp. The trail begins here just past the restrooms. Please remember that a Recreation Pass is required for parking.

I lived in Dutch John when I was a teenager so this trail will always be amazing to me. Great scenery, snooty fish and fishermen in various moods. And many people in rafts.

Little hole is where most end there Rafting/Fishing Trip. A great time no matter what you are doing. There is a great hiking trail that follows the river.

I have both hiked and floated this trail from Flaming Gorge Dam to Little Hole. Wonderful trip either way. Great trout fishing on a premier fly fishing stream.
