Probably my new favorite northern Utah trail. Ran it in my FJ Cruiser with some others from the UVU Off-Road Adventure Club and we had a blast! It wasn't a trail that was too difficult but some would probably feel uncomfortable taking a stock, high clearance SUV up here. There was a lot of loose rock and a couple technical spots that aren't too bad but having traction aids may help. Careful wheel placement is smart for some spots but after the last major rock obstacle it becomes a relatively smooth road all the way up to the pass where the road becomes gated as you actually are on the back side of Snow Bird ski resort. There are a couple of tight switchbacks where multi-point turns were necessary. But the scenery was amazing and we had the trail almost all to ourselves since it doesn't seem like it is as traveled as some of the other trails in the area. ATVs and Side-by-sides would have no issues but anything lifted with good tires should be able to make it with careful and smart wheel placement.
