    Ken Gillette reviewed Silver Lake Trail

    about 1 year ago

    A great trail, starts off very easy and slowly increases difficulty. The lake is beautiful, the water so clear that the trout can be easily seen, bring fishing gear!

    Nice trail, the earlier in the day the better to avoid crowds. Bug spray would have been helpful. Abundant flowers, also saw 3 moose (bull, cow, and calf), marmots and squirrels. Would be a great trail for children to experience.

    Ken Gillette reviewed Beartrap Fork Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Hiked up to the Wasatch Crest via the Mill D (Desolation Lake trail). Climbed to desolation peak, (no trail, just need to go up). Took the Beartrap trail on the way down. The upper third of this trail is very steep. (Would have rather come up this trail than down.) The scenery was even better than the Mill D trail, and far far fewer people.

    Great Hike! wildflowers were exploding color. Did not have a problem with flies or bugs, but that may have been due to the early start. Encountered a few mountain bikers near the lake.

    A nice trip to a small waterfall. A great opportunity for family members from sea level to experience the Wasatch

    Ken Gillette reviewed Bells Canyon Trail to Lower Falls

    about 1 year ago

    Nice trail with abundant water; if you have filtration or purification no need to carry much water. Amateur signs (looks like a boy scout project) have appeared on the trail both before the wilderness area and within it. The mileage provided on the signs does not appear to be accurate. Trekking poles are a plus.

    Excellent short hike, this gem is an easy to overlook trail on the way to Bryce.

    Easy day hike with numerous shallow stream crossings. Out and back hike that only takes a few hours. Go as early as you can, it is cooler and less people.

    Ken Gillette reviewed King's Peak Utah Highpoint Trail

    about 2 years ago

    Hiked/climbed Kings Peak on July 10-13, 2016 via Henry's Fork. Our group was three men with an average age of 50. The trail from the trailhead to Elkhorn crossing was dry. The bridge crossing the creek survived another winter and is still useful.
    We continued to point about a mile away from Dollar Lake and set up a camp for the night, lots of mosquitos, definitely bring Deet,it is very effective. Next morning we started out to our next camp site in Painter Basin. We crossed a couple of snow fields on the switchbacks heading up to Gunsight pass. These were short and we did not feel at all unsafe. We continued down the other side into Painter Basin to our next site. We used this site as a basecamp, which turned out to be a great move for us, our trip up to the summit and back was relaxing. The trail to Anderson pass is clearly marked with cairns, this part of the hike we encountered a lot of snow melt, but little snow. The scramble to the peak from Anderson was easier than any of us thought it would be, we did encounter snow fields, but were able to go above or below each of them without losing elevation. The peak was magnificent. The return to base camp was enjoyable. We spent another night at that camp then hiked the next day all the way back to the trail head.

    Overall: Lots of mosquitos, cold at night, comfortable during the day. Glad we took our time and enjoyed the trip.
