Dutch Hollow is a sage-covered bowl for hikers and mountain bikers. It’s part of Wasatch Mountain State Park, tucked just outside of Midway and Heber City.
To get there from Salt Lake City, take Interstate 80 East to the 40 East exit toward Heber/Vernal. Keep right at the fork and follow 40 East/189 South to River Road. Turn right on River Road and follow the signs for Dutch Hollow through a neighborhood. Continue onto a dirt road, following the big brown sign for Dutch Hollow, when the road dead-ends.
Hiking time 1 hours
Round trip miles 2.6 miles
Elevation gain 558 feet
Trail head restrooms No
Dogs allowed Yes
Bikes allowed Yes
There are several paths to choose from criss-crossing each other across the bowl.
This hike starts on the Cottontail loop, then continues on Sage and back to the loop again.
It’s an easy trail with just a bit of elevation gain, dry enough for a spring hike and surrounded by light-green sage and snow-covered mountains in the distance. Switch from Cottontail to Sage about a mile after the trailhead, then turn back and return to the parking lot along the same loop — or continue off Sage to some of the trails that climb up the bowl.
