Trail Map

Located on a little turn off on I-84 near Kroydon Utah.

The Trail:

There is a small turn off (located on both sides of the highway) and there is ample parking for you to get out and take a few pictures.  Most often, there are freight trucks parked here taking breaks so parking may be extremely limited.

Devil’s Slide in Utah (yes, there are several other locations and landmarks named Devil’s Slide in California and Montana) is located right off of I-84 and features a giant rock “slide” that extends several hundred feet down the side of the mountain.

There are about 40 foot tall slabs of limestone rock on each side of the “slide” running parallel with about a 25 foot gap in the center.

It is an incredible formation that you should stop and check out.

The Return:

Head back to your car.

Personal Thoughts:

Devil’s Slide is an amazing formation that seems to randomly be placed in Weber Canyon.  It is worth a quick stop just to get a sense for how far the “slide” extends.  I have tried to hike to Devil’s Slide but a fence and “no trespassing” sign are right at its base.Trek Planner Logo

The Bottom Line

Difficulty is basically the length, duration and stress of the Trek.  If the Trek is really long then it will receive a higher rating. If the Trek is short then it won't receive that high of a rating. However, difficulty rating also includes how tired we were at the end of the Trek.

Technicality is how strenuous the Trek is. If there is lots of bouldering or if there is bushwhacking involved then the rating will be higher. Technicality also includes if there are steep inclines or the need for ropes and other equipment.

Enjoyment is strictly how much fun we had doing the Trek. Regardless of how tired and exhausted we were, if we had a ton of fun doing the Trek then it will receive a higher rating.
