Little Cottonwood (aka Behind the Corrals or BtC)

Description:

It’ll be obvious why we call this trail “Behind the Corrals” when you drive up to unload at the trailhead.  This trail is is quick to the top, but a lot of fun.  Once you get on top, it’s a Jeep trail to get over to Temple Fork (and on to Worm trail, Turkey trail, etc.), or you can make it a loop by riding the roads around and coming down Steel Hollow.

  • Length: 1 mile until you hit the Jeep trail.
  • Difficulty: The stream crossing near the first of the trail is a little rock garden and the trail has a couple of steep and side hill sections that can be a little sketchy when wet or muddy.

Driving directions to trailhead:

Drive up Logan Canyon -> take the Right Hand Fork road until you get to the fork in the road right before Camp Lomia -> take the left fork and go until you see the corrals on the left, you can park right there or continue on a little more to park at the end of the road turnabout.

Combo/Loop opportunities:

This trail is fun to kick off some of my favorite combos:  BtC -> Worm Trail -> Turkey Trail -> Little Bear (ATV) -> back to Worm Trail and back down BtC to the start.  If you want to make a loop of it, you can go up BtC -> ride the dirt roads all the way around to the top of Steel Hollow and back to where you parked.
