Description

This steep and rocky trail connects the See Forever Trail to the Wasatch Trail #508 that leads to Bear Creek Falls. The Wasatch Connection drops off the backside of Gold Hill. The wildflowers through this area in July are some of the best around. Expect steep switchbacks on the descent into Bear Creek.
