Tibble Fork Trail #041

This trail begins with a steep climb up a series of switch backs, featuring excellent views of Tibble Fork reservoir, Mount Timpanogos, and the Lone Peak Wilderness area. The trail then continues to climb steadily for 1.7 miles to the junction with the Mud Springs trail #173.  The trail crosses through several beautiful meadows, which may be particularly wet and muddy in the spring and early summer.  The trail climbs from the Mud Springs junction for another 1.3 miles to the 4 way junction with the Ridge trail #157, and the South Fork of Little Deer Creek #252.
