Trail Map

An easy trail that provides a fine introduction to the Flaming Gorge area. The double track dirt road is well maintained and offers views of Red Canyon and Lake Flaming Gorge from an overlook at the end of the trail. This is also enjoyable as an evening ride as the sunsets from the viewpoint can be outrageously beautiful.
