An enjoyable day trip on a loop trail, with another trailhead for an optional side trip nearby. The trail is in the Uinta National Forest near the western boundary of the High Uintas Wilderness and features spectacular views, wildlife, and diverse vegetation. This hike follows a trail that makes a pleasant loop lined with conifer and aspen stands and scrub oak. Log Hollow Trail 064 is initially rather steep as it follows the left fork of Nobletts Creek. At the top of the canyon, the trail meets an old road (Forest Road 286), which you want to follow for about 0.25 mile. Look for where the road continues right (east) and is closed to the left (west); head left. The trail soon meanders along the ridge and winds through a grassy meadow.You can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding valleys and peaks, including Iron Mine Mountain to the east and Soapstone Mountain to the southeast.

It was a very nice hike. I parked @ the Log Hollow Parking area and did the loop "backwards". I am glad I did. The hike up was very nice with great views. The highlight was the meadow at the top. Make sure you look for the side trail that will take you over to the unmarked scenic over look, well worth it. The flowers were beautiful and all you could hear was the buzzing of the bees. The marked scenic overlook was stunning as well. The hike down on the opposite side of the loop was not as well marked. I did get off trail once, but about 5 minutes into it it was apparent that I was off trail. The guide book says 6 hours, I did the loop in 3.5 and I am not that fit. All in all a great hike for a flatlander from NJ! -sean
