The Dutch Hollow Trail System near Midway and Heber, Utah that contains over 20 miles of trails for hiking or mountain biking. In the winter you can snow shoe or hike with micro-spikes. This lies within Wasatch Mountain State Park, so if you park a car within the area, you will need to pay the $10/car day use fee (or have a Utah State Parks Pass). Here is a map of the area and info on the trails.
The trails are marked and visibility is pretty good, so it’s pretty easy to navigate. There are two trails that leave from this parking area. The left one is narrow and heads up the top of the rise, so this side will have better views of the Heber Valley.
To the right there is a narrow path that leads a short way to a wider road. After snow, they clear it with a plow.
The wider road section doesn’t go further than 1/4 mile. If you have snowshoes, there are lots of options to leave the trail. If you just have micro-spikes there are still several options.
At 1/3 miles is the first opportunity to switch to the upper trail.
Here are a few photos of the area. Be careful to stay on the packed trails or you might end up thigh-high in the snow.
The hillsides are nice in the winter, but spectacular in the fall!
Here a view of the valley.
Here are some photos of the area in the winter of 2020 when the snow wasn’t deep.
