Road Conditions

Road conditions for trailhead access are generally good. Some trailheads are reached on paved roads; others are reached on unpaved roads. These vary in condition from road to road, and even season to season, but most are passable to passenger cars with a careful driver. Four-wheel drive is not required to reach any of the 16 developed trailheads surrounding the High Uintas Wilderness, but high clearance is often helpful. When wet, however, unpaved roads may be impassable. Even the best unpaved roads should be driven slowly and with care.

The Grandview Road to the popular Grandview Trailhead is perhaps the worst and, ironically, the busiest unpaved access road. This road is steep, rocky, narrow, and exposed. For your safety and to avoid vehicle damage, use extreme care on this road, particularly stock trailers and passenger cars.
