Lincoln Mine Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This short, challenging trail connects Soldier Pass Trail to Utah 21 across the southern tip of the Mineral Mountains. For the most part, the trail is not maintained, but it is well used by vehicles. The fine granitic road surface gives way periodically to several large washouts—to negotiate these requires good clearance and wheel articulation. Most stock SUVs will be able to handle it, though extra long vehicles or those with running boards or lower clearance may find it difficult. A short section on the northern side of the saddle can be brushy and might cause some minor scratches on your vehicle.
Special Attractions: The old Spanish Lincoln Mine; Moderately challenging 4WD trail. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees."
