Directions

To Clarify directions: 1: You will turn off Mormon Trail RD and will be driving past the Grantsville Reservoir(You can fish here...) and going straight onto a dirt road. 2: Just before crossing the fence line there is a dirt road to the left, this is very bumpy. You will continue down this until you reach an opening in the fence on the right. 3: You will turn and cross a cattle guard. At this point I will be able to provide you with a map to help guide you if you would like. You will be working your way down trails to the entrance. 4: As you proceed west down the dirt road there will be a trail turnoff to the south, follow this carefully.(If you reach do not enter signs on the dirt rd, you've gone too far.) 5: As you head south there will be 2 turnoffs at a right angle to you on the right, pass them and go to the third turnoff to the right. It will veer to the right and then straight, rather than continuing up the hill. You will be entering the ravine and into the trees. 6: As you weave south down the riverbed you may choose to pull you vehicle off at any point to hike the rest of the way, or you may wish to drive the rest of the way if you have the vehicle clearance.\*There is a spot with a tree stump in the middle of the road, that you can go around. And a clearing up a hill to the right of the trail, in front of you.\*-You can either go up the hill to the tree line and follow the 4x4 trail along the ridge line to the property. this is a tricky route and best navigated by foot if you are concerned with"rocky mountain pin-striping" at all. You will be finding your way between the trees, as long as you stay on the peek of the hill as you go along you will arrive at my fence line exactly where you want to be.-OR, follow the lower trail around a couple tight bends and up to a point were there is another fork, going straight looks like a good option but only if you're on foot. You will also see a trail going to the left over a small hill just behind a large tree, if you're in a 4x4 you can go this way and continue down the narrow riverbed at a steep sideways angle. After that section you will cross another riverbed and the trail will split again, go to the right and follow that to my fence line.\*To cross onto my property you will have to go under a barb wire fence. I will be resolving this shortly and apologize for the inconvenience\* 7: Once on my property you are welcome to setup anywhere between corner marker sites 2,3,4,and 5. climbing up the center hill, or going straight along that peak if you took the upper route, will bring you to some very nice small clearings to setup your camp and enjoy an amazing view away from everything and everyone.

About This Campground

My property is 40 acres diagonally spanning three foothills and two sloped ravines between. campsites 2 through 5 serve to mark the corners of the property.

This is dispersed camping, there are no actual designated sites. Setting up camp on site 1, on the center hill is ideal and will give you a clear view of the valley all the way to the Great Salt Lake as well as sunrise and sunset from mountain to mountain.

Please understand, this is set back off an off-road trail. You can come close to the barb wire fence property line in a car but to reach the fence line by vehicle will require ground clearance and skilled driving, if you choose to drive up to the fence line you are taking a risk of scratching your vehicle.
