Trail Map

This trail closely follows the route of an old wagon road that was used to access both the Dry Fork Flume and the Flume Mill Site near Corral Park. The construction of the flume began in the spring of 1896 as a way to divert water from Dry Fork Creek around the many sinks located there, with the purpose of supplying irrigation water to the valley below. The experiment failed, but left excellent opportunities for hiking, biking and historical interpretation.

Basic Directions

From Vernal, go west on 500 North, past Uintah High School to 3500 West in Maeser. Turn north and follow that road approximately 12 miles until the pavement ends and gravel begins at the Ashley National Forest boundary. Park at the small parking area on the right side and start biking or hiking where the trail starts on the left side. The trail consists of sections of level and rolling two track and sections of steep and technical single track plus two creek crossings. The last stretch of 3 miles is a grueling climb before it levels out near the mill site.
