Germania Pass via Collins Gulch is a 5.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Sandy, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from July until October.
Park in the Goldminer’s Daughter/Wildcat Base parking lot on the south side of Hwy 210 to access this service road/trail. The road is moderately-steep to steep, passing through beautiful meadows in a hanging valley, and connects to the top of the Germania Pass-East Greeley trail.
This turned out to be a better hike that I thought. Starts in the parking lot next to the Gold Miners Daughter. Follows the road to Germania Pass. Its very green and the views are stunning. At the pass you can return the way you came or turn it into a loop via several other trails. You can also turn your hike into a double peakbagging by climbing either Mt Baldy and/or Sugarloaf Mountain.
