“A relatively steady climb to the top of East Fork and then down Middle Fork to Art Nord.”— Mike Appleby
At the junction, you go right to go down the Wheeler Creek - Middle Fork Trail. By going left you get to the Green Pond Trailhead in about a quarter mile which opens up possibilities to extend the run. Going down Wheeler Creek - Middle Fork Trail, the trail stays in the trees and descends steadily, but again not steeply, to the Old Snowbasin Road.
Once you reach the road, go directly across the road and continue on the singletrack trail until it meets up with the main Wheeler Creek Trail. Turn right and follow the trail back to the Art Nord Trail parking lot. After crossing the Old Snowbasin Road, the trail goes mostly down but does have one climb before reaching the Art Nord Trail.
This is a great trail both in summer and winter. It's fairly cool in the summer as a lot of it is in the trees. It is well used by snowshoers, runners, and bikers in the winter and it gets well packed quickly in the winter allowing it to be , run, hiked, or fat tire biked. There are great views of Snowbasin along the way. It can be extended by going down Icebox Canyon which turns off the main Wheeler Creek Trail on the left about half way back to Art Nord.
