Bear Lake area ATV/UTV trail – Swan Flat road part II

Moths, mushrooms, marshmallows in the mountains.

Another look at the Swan Flat trail with a detour to Pat’s Hollow Crash Site.

We took this trip in August and I dare say, we felt like the only ones on the trail.   With camp chairs and marshmallows, we planned ahead to stop on the trail and enjoy a little camp fire and an unbeatable panoramic view.  The kids enjoyed exploring and finding nature treasures.

After our snack break, we followed the trail signs to Pat’s Hollow Crash Site.  Click this link to read all about the military plane crash in January 1953.

The trails around the site are for hiking only, so we parked our RZR and had a good walk exploring around.  There is a memorial with all the names of the men who died.   And at the base there are remnants that people have found and placed there.
