The Middle Fork Trail is very popular with horseman. The area is not well suited for mountain biking. Hiking this trail is very pleasant and the scenery is amazing. Please note that the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) closes this trail between January 1 to April 15 to protect wildlife wintering grounds. Middle Fork Trail is used primarily by horsemen and hikers. The trail follows the Middle Fork of the Ogden river. Several other Trailheads including Browns Hole, Power Line and Shupe Canyon will be available at the end of this trail. A few water crossing may be required.

The hike was okay. Lots of swampy areas with thick mud (hiked in June). Horse poop EVERYWHERE...watch your step. The views coming down were decent but nothing breath taking. It was disappointing being so close to the river the entire time but not being able to see it the majority of the time. I'm from the Pacific Northwest so I may be a tad spoiled when it comes to hiking, but this one was sub-par.

Just happen to hike this trail again, that's twice in the past 7 days. This hike was much different then the first hike. The rain was very steady and made the trail very slick an muddy. We did out best to avoid trail damage and got back to the trailhead as quickly and safely as possible. However the rain and clouds made for some very picturesque scenery and made for some great photos.

This is an amazing area with amazing views. Today we had to take part of the Powerline trail because the river was very high and we did not want to cross it. Saw many horseman out on the trail today and a few hikers pretty busy really. The area was beautiful and the foliage was start to appear. I will be back up in this area again real soon.
