This spur trail climbs steadily to one of the highest points in the region, Frisco Peak at 9,660 feet in the San Francisco Range. From Utah 21, the trail begins as an unmarked, graded dirt road, and it quickly crosses the sagebrush benches on the eastern side of the San Francisco Range. Special Attractions: Narrow, moderately difficult 4WD spur trail; Panoramic views from Frisco Peak. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees.
