couple days ago parked off castle valley road and the 80.and hikes in on dirt road to trailhead.tuff start uphill early am start..fantastic views once at and and andesite peak..mix of occasional runners and bikers..continued to sand ridge lake...nice sandstone adjacent to lake for exploring.then ended up doing whole loop after missed turn..so continued to soda springs..last couple miles adjoins private property by lake ..then down dirt road..to reconnect with trail steps..look for wood block as trail signage..then along a private dirt road with a couple cabins..not the best marked trail..but great day hike..
