The trail begins by winding through an aspen grove, after which it intersects with the end of Sawmill-Nebo Creek Trail #130. From this point the trail follows the crest of the ridge, passing through occasional stands of conifers and aspen. there are some places where the trail drops down into saddles and then climbs up the other side again; however this portion of the trail is fairly level. Approximately 2 1/2 miles from the trailhead there is a fence across the trail. Please be sure to close the gate after you have passed through it. Shortly after this point there is a sign indicating the head of Page Fork. Page Fork Trail #088, has been relocated from this drainage to the east drainage. It now connects with Summit Trail approximately 1 1/2 miles before it turns sharply to the west going down into Pole Canyon. There is short, steep descent into Pole Canyon soon after which you arrive at the trailhead.

This trail gets passed by many people who are heading to hike Mt. Nebo and that area. This is a great trail that provides excellent views and provides for a good workout if that is what you are also looking for. There are 2 places to access the trail, I would suggest going to the point by Devils Kitchen. Sadly in 2018 a massive wildfire took out much of the vegetation, so in certain spots there is not too much to look at except dead burnt trees. Give it a try I think you will enjoy it.
