Excellent local hike. The stone Adirondacks are a great place to soak in the views. We ran up and down and enjoyed the wide and well maintained paths. Lower elevation and less risk of snow in the early fall compared to other local SLC hikes.
Excellent, challenging hike with great views. If you are not up for the rock scramble to the very top (it's not well marked so we got a bit lost coming down which was somewhat dangerous), the hike to the saddle and the view from it are just are rigorous and beautiful. Bring plenty of water.
clearly marked trail starting in the back of the picnic area just down the canyon from the reception place. The incline is actually very pleasant, steep in a couple places but great scenery the entire way. the summit is still accessible during the winter, however the last push to the top gets a little steep and icy, crampons and trekking poles are recommended.
This was a great trail to hike. Be aware though, if you have small children with you, or if you don't climb too well, there is one spot where you have to climb down about a 10 foot rock wall. There is also a small stream to cross, though it's not deep at all. Once you reach the falls you can stay at the bottom and enjoy the scenery from there, or you can climb up some moderately difficult rocks to get to the cave. Keep on climbing to get to the top. What a view!
A relatively gentle trail to Lake Mary. We entered on the Brighton side. Once you reach the lake there are a number of options if you choose to proceed; we went up towards Millicent Peak which was quite a climb and a lot of serious bouldering. Unfortunately couldn't make it to the top on account of the snow.
Great hike- I would rate it easy until just over half way when you start really gaining some altitude. Once you're actually on Burch Hollow the path gets very narrow and over grown. We tripped quite a few times on roots and stumps that were covered with the fallen leaves. Having a good sense of balance really came in handy when crossing some of natures obstacles!
