Amanda G. on Lake Desolation Mill D North Trail
One of my favorite Utah lake hikes!!!!
Amanda G. on Fifth Water Hot Springs Trail
I love this trail. Very shaded for summer and beautiful in the fall with all the colors and leaves falling. I did this trail last January as well and the road was closed to the trailhead. So be careful if going after they shut the road down for winter. It adds 8 miles to the 5 mile trail.

Amanda G. on Lake Catherine (Big Cottonwood)
Lake Martha sits just past lake Mary on your way to lake Catherine! Easy hike from lake Mary to Catherine. Hardly any snow
