“Link to the Lost Dog area, Transmountain Summit and the southwest Franklins via this rugged trail.”— Brendan Ross
The good news is that development has reached the boundary of the state park and can't proceed any further east. While parking locations may change on the map here, the trails will not.
The first two-tenths of a mile of North Clyde's are like the other west-east trails in the area: wide, somewhat rocky, and a low grade, steady incline. Connections to Little Moab Valley and Little Moab branch off to the left near the state park boundary sign. The trail then crosses a dry creek bed and will be difficult to see for the next two hundred feet. The path will break off to the right and begin a steeper climb up the mountains towards a set of three utility poles.
From the creek bed onward, the trail will be much more technical. Storm damage has littered the path with large rocks and runoff creates occasional rivets in the trail. After a half mile, North Clyde's will reach the poles and turn south, merging into Thunderbird.
