    Steve Slessinger reviewed Willow Heights Trail

    11 months ago

    Hiked up to and beyond Willow Lake yesterday morning. The wildflowers were in full glory on this trail through the aspen forest, around, and above the lake. The first 1/2 mile is a strong moderate climb. But once to the top of the aspen forest, it is an easy hike. Take the loop around the lake for additional views!

    Easy hike 2 miles up the trail from the parking lot to where the springs are capped. :( Water levels not as strong as other areas within the Wasatch but still flowing. Flowers probably past their peak but a fair amount still present. LOTS of meadows around with some great views. And butterflies galore.

    Hiked up to the lower Red Pine lake. First 2 miles not too hard. Third mile was steep (1000'+ elevation gain) on ground that was about 1/2 covered with snow on the trail. Spikes definitely helped climb over the snow piles. The lake was beautiful with snow still around 2/3 of the bowl and a huge water cascade coming down from the upper lake. Pictures uploaded

    hiked up to the upper falls yesterday. Still a lot of water coming down from the mountain over both falls. Not too many people beyond the first falls cutoff. There is a nice water flow over slick rock just beyond the upper falls on the trail. Pictures uploaded.

    Hike from Alta restaurant to PoW mine this morning. Still a little bit of snow on the trail but nothing that you would need snowshoes or spikes. A lot of water flowing down from the upper peaks and great views down the canyon.

    Hike up to Sunset Peak this morning from the Alta parking lot via Catherine Pass. Still a fair amount of snow on parts of the trail and spikes are recommended. Great views of many peaks and valleys along the way and up on the peak. Lake Catherine still has some ice on it but Martha and Mary are ice free.

    Hike to Dog Lake yesterday from Mill D/Big Cottonwood. No snow on the ground or trail. Wildflowers starting to appear along the trail and in the meadows. Lake was quiet with no one around in the morning.

    Hiked to the lake this morning from the Alta ski area; up through the Albion basin meadow, 5 miles RT. Needed spikes/cleats from the Cecret lake parking lot up to the lake. LOTS of snow. The lake is still frozen and covered with snow. A beautiful snow-melt waterfall above the lake.

    Very short hike up to a water fall that is flowing strong. Lots of people at the trail and falls this morning. Need to go back with less people and see what is above the falls.

    Nice hiking day, decided to go to Rock Canyon in Provo. Lots of water flowing down the creek. And the sun poked through at various moments to lighten the sky and surroundings. Plants at lower elevations starting to bloom. Definitely a hike to do in the fall!

    hiked to the 2nd (Upper) waterfall today. No snow until you passed the first falls. Finally found the 2nd falls since the trails leading to it were snow covered. Not an easy hike to the 2nd falls since some scrambling was needed. However, it was definitely worth it.

    hiked this from the squaw peak overlook TH yesterday. Fairly easy hike, climbed about 1300 vertical feet going out 2 miles. Great views of the Provo/Orem and Utah Lake area below the mountain. Hiked through snow starting about a mile from the TH at 7200'. Walked back on the road which was also covered in snow and closed to all but ATV/snowmobile vehicles. Great place for sledding and cross country skiing.

    Beautiful day for hiking to the falls. Trail has a fair amount of loose rocks but not too hard to hike. Muddy in spots due to snow melt but very minimal amount of snow on the trail and spikes are not needed. Falls had abundant amount of water. Trail to the top of falls not easy to spot, veers off left around 1 3/4 miles from the TH. Lots of morning shade so a good hike to do early in the day in the summer. Trail map is slightly incorrect about 1 1/4 miles in where it turns right at the meadow. Trail continues straight ahead and eventually meets up with what is shown on the map.

    Steve Slessinger reviewed Lake Desolation Mill D North Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Hike to Desolation snow pond yesterday morning. Not much snow on the initial part of the trail from Mill D. However, a lot of snow for 3 miles to Desolation snow pond (lake). Not many boot prints in the snow on this trail and only one set from about 1/2 mile out to the lake. Was a beautiful day to hike and enjoyed the serenity of the trail. Just over 2 hours up to the lake, 80 minutes down.

    Steve Slessinger reviewed Jacob's Ladder to Lone Rock

    about 1 year ago

    Hiked from Draper Cycle Park, past Ghost Falls, and then up the Lone Rock/Movie Rock (Storm Window Arch) trail. From the upper Ghost Falls TH, it is about 1 mile up to Movie Rock and 1200 feet vertical. This is NOT an easy climb. Took me just over an hour to do the climb from GFTH to Movie Rock; 30 minutes to come down. Great views of the Salt Lake Valley, Oquirrh Mountains, Utah Lake, and Mt. Timpanogos.

    5th stream hot pots hike today. Perfect day to hike, sunny, no clouds, minimal breeze, 50s. Trail muddy in places from the previous rain. Lots of water over the falls and down the stream

    Steve Slessinger reviewed Bells Canyon Trail to Lower Falls

    about 1 year ago

    Hike to falls was great this morning with snow/ice on the last 1/4 mile (on the climb). A bit muddy in places due to the 2.5" of rain over the past 3 days. Water over the falls was spectacular

    Steve Slessinger reviewed Grandeur Peak Trail from Church Fork

    over 1 year ago

    Decent hike with a consistent ascent. Last mile or so steeper so it will give your legs a good workout. A bit of scrambling but nothing hard. Great views from the top. Took about 3 hrs 15 min up/back with a 15-20 minute break at the top. Not many people on the path and a few dogs. About 6 miles RT from the road since you can't drive up to the TH

    Steve Slessinger reviewed Silver Lake Loop Trail

    over 1 year ago

    Got up to Silver Lake/Brighton early this morning. Lake was calm in the early morning with the sun just past cresting the peaks to the east. Able to get many reflection shots in the lake. Lots of color with the aspens, clear blue sky, and new snow.
