Utah's Wasatch Hiking Trails

Silver Fork to the Mine
I can't find statistics for this hike (I thought the trail was about 3 miles one way), but it starts at the far west end of the Solitude parking lot (about 12.3 miles from the mouth of the canyon) and is a pretty gently sloping route.

Head across the slope, under the chairlift, and follow the dirt road . At first you are going through private property, so be sure to stay on the trail.

It is a pretty gradual trail with lots of switchbacks and some downright level areas. The whole way is forested and a lovely sight in the fall.

We took a rest for lunch at the mine site. Apparently, you can travel up from here to a pass, but we couldn't find the trail.
