Horse Pasture Trail to Scorup Cabin

Horse Pasture Trail to Scorup Cabin Professional Review and Guide

"If you have only one day for a hike in the upper Dark Canyon area, the Horse Pasture Trail should be at the top of your list. This trail is the most scenic and popular of all the upper Dark Canyon trails. Although the trip is typically taken as a day hike, it can be used as one leg of an extended shuttle trip to one of four other upper Dark Canyon trailheads.

Backpackers should note that no water is available until they reach Dark Canyon, and sources are quite scarce beyond. Cedar Mesa slickrock embraces the rich meadows of Horse Pasture Canyon. The well-defined trail begins behind the trailhead register and signboard and leads among snowberry shrubs in the shade of the ponderosa pine forest for 200 yards to a trail sign."

I did not hike this trail, but I did visit Scorup Cabin on a hike down from Big Notch. The Elk Ridge area has many pines and aspens to find shade under. The cabin itself is open and has a table to rest at. The spring just below the cabin is clear and cold unlike the stagnant water sources typically found in Utah canyons. Bring a camera to this scenic spot. Chances are you'll have it all to yourself.
