Silver Lake Flat

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Uinta National Forest, Pleasant Grove Ranger District, American Fork Canyon, Silver Creek, Milk Maid Trail, Major Evans Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Uinta National Forest offers two separate 4x4 trails which consists of the Milkmaid Trail and Major Evans Trail. The Milk Maid Trail is roughly a few miles long and heads in a north-west direction near Silver Lake and is rated as moderately challenging. The Major Evans Trail is a little longer but heads in a north-eastern direction and is rated as more challenging due to sharp switchbacks and steep inclines. There are several primitive campsites located near the trailhead but there is a designated campground just a couple miles south and a nice hiking trail that leads to Silver Lake.
