Overview

The South Fork Trail follows the South Fork of the White River for 16 miles. Nearly all of the South Fork Trail is in the Flat Tops Wilderness. The trail travels through many species of trees and shrubs, interspersed with grassy meadows. Three miles from the South Fork Campground, the trail crosses a section of private land. Two miles further it crosses a second section of private land near Lost Solar Creek. Please respect private property and remain on the trail.

Seven miles from the campground, the trail crosses Park Creek, and three miles above Park Creek it passes the South Fork Falls. Three miles above the falls, the canyon begins to widen near Budges' Resort (also accessible by the Coffee Pot Road from Dotsero). The trail then heads north, following the river through a wide, grassy area called "The Meadows," and terminating near Nichols Creek and Doe Creek.
