White Oak Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The White Oak Trail is not connected to any other backcountry trail. Located in the northeastern corner of the park, it follows old roads from Little Jordan Road/Ugly Creek Road south to the Green River and what once was Dennison Ferry.

The actual ferry has been long abandoned, but the trail ends just across the river from the Dennison Ferry Picnic Area. One of the park’s best backcountry campsites, White Oak, is located at the trail’s end. The highlights include Homesites, rock overhang, and riverside campsites. The trail is in very good condition and sees low traffic."

Nice easy trail. Way away from the other trails. Lots of trees down across the trail. Some you can cross over some you will have to go around. The limestone chimney was the hightlight of the trail. The end of the trail is at the Green River. It is really beautiful. The backcountry campsite is a great place to stop for lunch before you head back. Caution on the road to the trail. It is just wide enough for one car/truck but traffic runs both ways with not many places to pull off.
