Description: Maples Loop Nordic Trail is a National Forest Service Trail below Snowbasin Ski Resort. The area is forested with mixed aspen, fir, spruce, and pine. The trail formerly was a dirt road that led to Maples Camground years ago when the camground was an overnight camping area.

Maples Loop Nordic Trail is just below the northernmost Snowbasin Ski Resort parking lot [Parking Lot #3]. The trailhead is at the farthest corner from the parking lot entrance. Snowbasin is accessed from SR-167, Trapper's Loop, that runs between the town of Mountain Green in Morgan County and Huntsville in Weber County.

Red-naped Sapsucker, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Flammulated Owl, both Chickadees, Broad-tailed Hummingbirds, MacGillivray's Warblers, Orange-crowned Warblers, House Wrens, Lazuli Buntings.

You may either walk down the trail nearly a mile to the open area of the old campground and return to the trailhead, or follow the trail signs to other National Forest Service trails.
