Monks Hollow Trail
From the trailhead, you have a choice of a route to the
left that's 1 mile shorter, but has a tougher initial climb. This trail gains 500 vertical
feet within 1/2 mile. It joins the main path at 1.5 miles. The straight-ahead route (up the road, then across the wash to the left at
0.5 miles) is a steady but mild incline that winds around the hillsides. Most riders will
prefer this path.
|Other ways you can get to the Diamond Fork trails: (1) Hobble Creek: From Springville, head up Hobble Creek Canyon. Once you enter the canyon, keep right at every fork in the road. You'll cross over the pass and down into Diamond Fork. You'll reach the Diamond Fork Road about 13 miles after leaving Springville. (2) Ray's Valley Road: In Spanish Fork Canyon, go a few miles further up the canyon to Ray's Valley Road. You can access the trails directly from the paved road, or continue onto the dirt road (keep left at the intersection with the Strawberry road) and down into Diamond Fork. You'll reach the paved Diamond Fork road about 17 miles after leaving US-6. (3) Strawberry: From US-40, turn south at the westernmost end of the reservoir. Drive 8 miles on pavement then turn right onto a dirt road. (Note: May be paved as of July 2004.) About 7 miles later, it will meet the dirt extension of Ray's Valley Road. Keep right and drop 2 miles down to the Diamond Fork road.|
|Getting there: Going south, take the first Spanish Fork exit from I-15 (US-6 to Price and Manti).
Go east on US-6 and enter Spanish Fork Canyon. Drive 5.5 miles from the mouth of the
canyon then turn left on the Diamond Fork road. Drive 7.6 miles and spot a small turnout
on the right, with a one-lane bridge going over the river and a small sign brown saying
"72." GPS N 40° 04.480' W 111° 23.510'.
The trail begins just across the bridge. The left branch turns immediately left, going past the side of the wooden barn: after dipping through the wash, keep right and climb the hill. The right branch heads up the dirt road, where you'll see a small section of wooden fence with an ATV-sized hole in it on your left. Drop through the deep wash and up the other side, turning right on the trail.
