Heber Valley Hiking & Biking Trails: An Adventure for Everyone

Heber Valley has a multitude of hiking trails that weave through forests and meadows through the foothills and mountainsides of this stunning area. Many hiking trails lead to breathtaking vistas and all go through beautiful areas to explore. With so many options, it can be hard to decide which trail fits you best. Here is an overview of five great trails that range from light family outings to an all-day adventure-seeking activity. 

Cascade Springs

Cascade Springs is a short, paved trail ideal for beginners or a light family outing. The path has boardwalks and wooden bridges that allow for stroller and wheelchair access. The area features a series of small waterfalls, streams, and pools and is primarily used for walking, nature trips, and bird watching. The water is protected, so neither people nor dogs are allowed in the pools or streams. Dogs must be on a leash at all times. Enjoy this peaceful area and explore more along the 40-mile Alpine Loop Scenic Backway drive. The paved road to this stop meanders through Wasatch Mountain State Park and the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Service area.

Distance: 0.8 mile heavily trafficked loop   
Level: easy   
Duration: an average of 19 minutes to complete   
Best times to visit: May - October  
Drive time: 22 minutes from Midway, Utah

Pine Creek Nature Trail 

This beginner trail is perfect for hikers or bikers looking for an adventurous afternoon. Pine Creek Nature Trail is a shaded one-mile hike along a creek up to a glacier wash. Hikers can expect to take about one hour for this hiking experience. This nicely kept single track trail is fun for families, offering an easy hike to a boulder field. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.

Distance: 0.50 mile one-way trail  
Level: easy  
Duration: an average of 1 hour to complete  
Best times to visit: May - October

Deer Creek Trail

This easy trail can also be classified as moderate due to its length. Offering nearly 8 miles of one-way gravel and dirt trail, the path meanders along the Deer Creek State Park & Reservoir shoreline. Popular for hikers, runners, and mountain bikers, you will likely encounter other users. Dog are welcome, but must be on a leash.

Crow's Nest Trail

Within Wasatch Mountain State Park, Crow's Nest Trail is an intermediate trail with switchbacks and slightly steeper climbs. The trail is clearly marked and the hike takes about two hours and 40 minutes. It’s the perfect hike for a morning workout, an evening activity, or a picnic lunch adventure. You can get to the trailhead from the Wasatch Mountain State Park visitor center parking lot or from the Huber Grove Nature Center. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.

Distance: 5.1 mile loop trail

Lackawaxen Lake Trail

This popularly and, at times, heavily trafficked hike is a two-in-one for great hiking that takes you to two mountain lakes: Lackawaxen Lake and Bloods Lake. Notes: The trail is located on the Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway drive and features beautiful wildflowers in spring and early summer, as well as stunning fall foliage during the autumn months. The trail is primarily used for hiking. Parking can be full on weekends and holidays throughout the summer. Mid-week use is recommended. Dogs are welcome on this trail only, but must be on a leash. Dogs are NOT allowed at Bloods Lake, which is on the way to and near Lackawaxen Lake. Bloods Lake tends to be a more popular destination, likely due to its shorter distance for access.

Best times to visit: May - October

The Dutch Hollow Trail System is a collection of 13 trails. The length and difficulty of each trail vary from beginner to advanced and can be used by hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash. The trail conditions are mostly smooth and are dirt paths with little shade so be sure to pack your own water. These trails are open year-round, making them a great place for snowshoeing when conditions are right.

The Boneyard Trail

The Boneyard Trail is a difficult, yet rewarding trail in Wasatch Mountain State Park. Full of dry tree trunks and sage brush that earn the trail its namesake, the Boneyard is full of steep ups and downs that require more experienced hikers and bikers. Adventurers can expect an intense trek through the area with sharp inclines and a rewarding view of Heber Valley along the way. This moderately trafficked trail features beautiful wildflowers in the spring and is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.

Distance: 1.8 mile out-and-back trail  
Level: hard
