“A high mountain pass connecting East Fork Mill Creek with West Fork Boulder River.”— samh Haraldson
This is some raw and rugged country that is not often visited. However, you'll encounter other users at each end of the trail coming from the associated trailheads. Once on the high pass proper you'll have the place to yourself.
The price of this solitude is work, however. Since this is a mountain pass, there is a lot of climbing to the high point followed by some knee-pounding descent back to the drainage on the other side. Get your exercise on and go get 'er done!
