Directions on the trail- The trail begins at the north edge of the parking/camping area. There are a series of ranch roads, cattle paths and trails which traverse the area making numerous sized loop trail rides possible. Take a topo and a GPS and go for it. Remember to practice ranch gate etiquette - leave the gates the way you find them! Terrain is gentle, views are spectacular and autumn leaves are priceless to behold.

Hardware Ranch is administered by the Utah DWR and is horse friendly. Help us keep it that way by ensuring you leave the area clean of all trash, manure etc.


Remember always to use your best judgment. Always take a moment to consider the suitability the weather, trail conditions, your horsemanship skills, the skill of those in your party, and perhaps most important...the physical and mental condition of your horses before each trip.

Safe Trails!!!
