The trail follows the Little South Fork of the Provo River from atop the Duchesne Ridge down to Utah Hwy 35 east of Woodland. The Little South Fork trail also connects with Willow Hollow trail to make a 10-mile loop hike. The Willow Hollow segment follows Willow Creek and includes about one mile of jeep road to connect with Little South Fork Trail. The terrain is mostly forested hillside and broad river bottoms, making this a very scenic hike. Several open meadows along the way provide ideal campsites for backpackers. Difficulty is moderate, primarily due to length.

Basic Directions

To reach Little South Fork trail, follow Utah Hwy 35 just east of woodland to a turnoff on the right that is paved to a cattle guard. From the cattle guard, a dirt road accesses the trailhead. This road crosses private property; respect fence lines along the roadside and close all gates behind you. To reach the upper access to Little South Fork, continue on Utah Hwy 35 past the lower trailhead to the turnoff for Mill Hollow Reservoir (Forest Road #096). Take this road past the reservoir to the junction with Forest Road #096 on the right. Turn right on #096 and watch for a small trail sign on the right side of the road, just past the turnoff. To reach the upper access to Camp Hollow, take Lake Creek Road east from Heber City to the Uinta Forest boundary. Turn left at the Boundary sign and follow this road to a “T” intersection. The Camp Hollow trail is straight ahead through this intersection. Follow blazes to remain on these routes where deadfall may obscure trails. Detailed maps of this area are available at the Heber Ranger District office just east of Heber City on US Hwy40 (435-654-0470)
