In the spring Shingle Creek opens earlier than other Uinta hikes because of its relatively low elevation. Mountain bikers love this trail. On a hot summer or early fall day avoid the Utah heat and head to Shingle Creek for a leisurely dog day in the shade. During the winter months, this easy trail is a pleasant snowshoe excursion. Shingle Creek is a popular trail because it’s close in and accessible. As such, it gets busy on weekends, but even on crowded days your dog will thank you.
