Great birding up in this area! The trailhead is in the corner of a busy parking lot but I see very few people on the trail every time I go. There's a fair amount of wildlife other than birds that's exciting to run into as well (moose and some pika towards the top in the rocky areas). I would highly recommend this trail! ❤️

Beautiful

One of my favorite hikes in the Wasatch. No snow on the trail right now, but parts were pretty icy, especially in the second half. Spikes would be overkill but poles and tread-y shoes would have helped on the downhill. (It did get easier later in the day; I started early when it was all still frozen.) Blanche is pretty, but I think Florence (or Lillian, I can never remember which is which) is even prettier. Just head north along Blanche; the other two are just past the second retaining wall. Actually, just roam around a lot when you get up there; the views in all directions are incredible.

One of my favorite hikes. Great climb most of the way...some flats to rest your legs. The leaves through the first 3/4 of the trail were beautiful. Love the views at the top...snow on the peaks.

The trail had 4-6 inches of new snow early this morning and had the trail to ourselves except for bird and deer.
