Description

The East Fork of Wheeler Creek Trail is a moderately difficult trail with easy access. It was built with a wider trail tread for sharing the trail with bikes and horses. It has a steady uphill grade from Art Nord to the Green Pond Trailhead.

Near the Green Pond trailhead, it connects to the Wheeler Creek - Middle Fork Trail. This makes a great loop trip.

The trail has a trailhead parking lot at either end. On the north end is Art Nord Trail located on County Road 226, the old Snowbasin Road. On the south end is Green Pond Trailhead located between Trappers Loop Road, SR 167, and Snowbasin Resort.
