DRY CREEK TRAIL - I've only hiked this half of the trail. Some day I will hike the Deer Creek side and post another review about that half of the trail. The trailhead starts in Alpine. It's about 5.1 miles to the ridge and a little over 3900 feet elevation gain. I would rate this as a moderate trail. The views are amazing! To the west you can see Alpine, Traverse Mountain and even Herriman. From the ridge looking east you can see Tibblefork Reservoir. When I hiked up, I "ridge hiked" to the north. This climb is a lot steeper but worth the views. If you go far enough north you can look down at Silver Lake Flat and Silver Lake.
