We're not crazy about this campground — it has a ridden hard & put up wet feel. We paid for two nights, but think we'll cut our losses & move on in the morning.

We hiked a tad on the trail from the campground and went as far as a dispersed camping area. It was pleasant enough, but very dusty.

Here's a description of the trail from the Forest Service website: "Adjacent to Emigration Campground is the High Line National Recreation Trail. This trail is open to all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles, bikes, horses, and hikers. The High Line Trail is the premier trail on the Montpelier District. The trail is 55 miles long offering scenic vistas along the Bear River Range. The High Line National Recreation Trail intersects many other trails on the west side of the district. The High Line National Recreation Trail is currently being considered as a portion of the Great Western Trail, a trail system intended to span from Canada to Mexico."
