Route: "The Sink Hollow Trail is located near the Beaver Mountain Ski Area. It is a popular snowshoe and cross-country ski trail [and] a very pleasant hiking trail. This is a segment of the Great Western Trail....

"A number of RV-accessible campsites are located [at the trailhead.] The trail heads north through open sage-brush meadows surrounded by aspen and lodgepole pine, gaining 400 feet in the first two miles. Sink Hollow narrows and becomes more steep.... As it becomes level after 1.8 miles, look for the large sink to the left below a rocky outcropping for which the trail is named."
