    Route Description for Center Canyon Trail

    The Center Canyon Trail is a beautiful hike southeast of Heber City, Utah. Both hikers and OHV-drivers use this trail, so when hiking, be sure to stay aware of your surroundings and allow folks with wheels to pass you by. This trail is dog-friendly and is a great place to see forest wildlife. If your dog is reactive to other animals, be sure to keep them on a leash. If you are lucky enough to catch sight of wild animals such as deer or elk, who are often seen along this trail, do not feed them and give them plenty of personal space. With low-traffic year-round, the Center Canyon Trail is a great place to go for some peace and solitude in the beautiful Utah Wilderness.

    From the highway 40 turn-off, head east along Center Canyon Road for 2.9 km before turning around and retracing your steps back to the vehicle.

    If you are looking for a beautiful place to spend the night after your hike, check out the Lodge Pole Campground just down the road.
