This is a very pleasant hike through two small canyons on the edge of the Uinta National Forest. Unfortunately both of the canyons are dry, although for a short distance the walk is along the pretty Nobletts Creek. If you have some extra time before or after this hike, there is another nearby trail that follows the south shore of Nobletts Creek for 1.5 miles to its source. To find this trail, walk south on Highway 35 for another 200 feet beyond the Nobletts Creek Trailhead sign. Just after the road crosses Nobletts Creek you will see a small parking area, at the back of which is an unmarked trail to the source of Nobletts Creek.

First, someone has moved the sign used to locate the end of the trail in this description. You will find the end of the trail about a half mile past the sign. There is a parking lot and a trailhead board there. Second, although the description says that this trail is no longer being maintained, this is apparently no longer true--the Nobletts Creek trailhead sign describes it as an advanced ski trail, and it has been recently cleared and maintained. the map at the trailhead indicates that you can follow the trail by following blue diamonds, which we did not see, but there were plenty of trail markers. Finally, some changes appear to have been made at the top of the trail, in the vicinity of the sheep watering tank. You will be on the jeep trail when you reach the tank, and will leave it at the top of the meadow. This was a lovely, well marked trail well worth following.
