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. Show more
