Mount Van Cott Trail is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Salt Lake City, UT that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This is a great trail to begin with and train for harder and more difficult trails. It is a fun trail and has many points to stop and view The Valley of Salt Lake. It has gradual inclines and parts where the trail flattens out for a nice break, and fun to race down the mountain when finished! Highly recommend it!
