    Dense forest in Northern Utah?

    Anyone know of some trails in Northern Utah that are mostly in dense pine/conifer/fir trees?

    In American Fork Canyon: the northern section of the SFLDC #252 trail; Mill Canyon #040 (the switchbacks section is probably the most dense forested trail I've been on); parts of the Tibble Fork #041 and Mud Springs #173 trails.

    Thanks! Just found this (assuming that's you). Is this the trail with the Ewok Forest everyone is talking about?

    Yes, that's me and the northern section of #252 is sometimes called the Ewok Forest. It's dense and beautiful but, not as long (or dense) as the switchback section of the Mill Canyon Trail.

    Am I right in assuming #252 is more 'wife-friendly' than the Mill Canyon Trail?

    Really, any of the trails that are on the north side of a ridgeline in Park City will have dense, mixed conifer forest if your looking for something tame. Both Armstrong and Pinecone go though some nice Doug Fir and maybe White Fir or Engelmann and Blue Spruce.

    The switchback section of Mill is about the same technical difficulty as #252 but, the lower half of Mill, down to the river and Tibble, is much higher on the scale. I guess I'd say that getting to the top of #252 requires more aerobic conditioning than anything else.
