Sometimes, it seems that trails only exist to connect two points. Hadden Flat is one of those trails unless you're the land owner -- there are lots of cows in the area. It's a handy and relatively short trail connecting the Cedar Mountain trail to the Green River Cutoff, and we had to check it out.
It had been raining and hailing on Cedar Mountain, but it looked like it was going to clear up. The desert dirt and sand quickly got rid of the water, and we were on dusty dirt. The trail was pretty easy though it wasn't maintained like the other trails we had seen so far, so that was nice. We didn't see anyone else on it.
There was a spot that was really eroded, but Monica and Matt had a good time finally using four-wheel drive. Walt spotted a bypass around it, and he met us on the other side. It was good to have a little bit of a challenge. We found another area like that a bit later, and each of us took a different route through it.
It stayed fairly easy until the end when we popped back out on the Green River Cutoff, a trail we did that morning. We would take it a short distance to the east to find the Fuller Bottom trail and a much bigger adventure than we expected.
