This large area offers numerous single track trails that range from intermediate to difficult. There are many campgrounds that have direct trail access and several trailheads scattered throughout the area.
Many trails tie into roads from Diamond Fork, Sheep Creek and to the top of Strawberry Ridge. Monks Hollow Staging Area provides ample parking for trucks and trailers and is the prefered parking spot for ATVs. Sawmill, Three Forks/Fifth & Second Water Staging Areas provide access to single track trails and are open to dirt bikes only.
The Diamond Fork Hot Springs can be accessed by a hiking trail from Three Forks/Fifth & Second Water Staging Area. (Note: The hot springs are considered by many to be clothing optional, so you may encounter nude bathers.)
This trail system is generally open for riding around late April or May through the end of October. Diamond Fork Campground is open year-round but the other campgrounds generally close around October through Memorial Day weekend.
