The Daniels Summit OHV Loop is 45 miles of riding in the Uinta National Forest. Our ride took approximately 6 hours at 7 mph. This is a full-day ride that will take you west of Daniels Summit Lodge toward Wallsburg. The trail winds itself through quaking aspen, conifers and scrub oak in a loop. The trailhead is about 20 minutes outside Heber City off the main highway starting from the Daniels Summit Lodge.

Daniels Summit serves as a perfect base camp for your adventure offering lodging, dining, a general store and rentals. Nearby Heber is a good place to stock up on fuel and supplies before heading up the canyon.

Turn right onto the Daniels Summit Loop heading north. Continue driving along route 046.
The fall is a great time to go on this ride if you time your trip to the fall colors. We rode the trail in early October.
You will pop out onto some pavement just southeast of Wallsburg. Take a left heading south on Little Valley Road.
Continuing past some private property you will come to a sign indicating the road may be impassable due to snow or inclement weather.
Stay right at the water crossing and cross carefully. This is a segment of trail that has become braided.
We went west on this trail that runs through a grove of quaking aspen. It’s a little ways off the loop but is a good place to stop for lunch.
Turn right at this cross roads to head south.
This was a segment of trail that was more gnarly than the rest with a couple larger rocks to bump over.
Views from the trail out across the valley. This is a good example of the riding you will find along this trail.
Turn right to stay on route 135. If you look to the west you can see Strawberry Peak.
