#1 - Lake Blanche Trail
Twin Peaks Wilderness
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow Star(4303)
Length: 6.9 mi • Est. 4 h 37 m
Note: Because this trail lies within a protected watershed, dogs and swimming are not permitted in the area. The gate to the parking lot may close in the winter, making parking much more difficult and along the road. Though demanding, this hike has it all: beautiful mountaintop lake, awesome views, and abundant wildlife. Plan to stop several times to catch your breath. The views down into the canyon below are breathtaking. Just prior to arriving at the lake, parts of Salt Lake City are also visible from the trail. ADVISORIES: The trail does not start at the information board labeled "Lake Blanche Trail." The trailhead is 1/4 mile from the parking lot right beside the creek coming down from the drainage. Make sure to take plenty of water! Insect repellent is a good idea as mosquitos are plentiful. If you are planning this hike for later in the day, pack a flashlight (with fresh batteries) in case your journey takes longer than planned. Attempting to navigate the trail after dark would be a very dangerous endeavor. In the winter, Spikes and poles are highly recommended. No fires are permitted anywhere in the Lake Blanche (Mill B South) drainage. As the area is in a federally designated Wilderness area, drones are not permitted to take off from, land in, or be operated from that area.Show more

Please note that many hikers are recommending taking a take a hard left right after the second bridge and follow the falls. Note: Because this trail lies within a protected watershed, dogs and swimming are not permitted in the area. Trail is also "moderate" during the winter season when it has snow.Show more

Length: 4.9 mi • Est. 2 h 57 m
Please Note: No dogs allowed. This lake is part of the protected Big Cottonwood Canyon watershed, so swimming in any lake or river is prohibited. This is a beautiful, steep trail following a raging creek in the spring. It has relatively little traffic, and lots of shade relative to many Salt Lake hikes. The trail ends near a pond in a high valley.Show more

Stairs Gulch is an out and back trail located across Big Cottonwood Canyon Road from the Storm Mountain Amphitheater. There is no sign located at the trailhead but the trail is easy to spot from the road. It winds along side Stairs Gulch and a series of small waterfalls can be seen from numerous paths off the main trail. The trail ends at the river about .3 miles in but the river can be crossed a couple different times and adventurous hikers can continue. Be aware of your own skill and limitations.Show more

After Blanche, the trail seems to disappear. Follow the stream next to the rock slabs. Once the trails curves east, the boulder hoping begins and eases up as you approach the ridgeline traverse. Comparing the ridgeline to Pfifferhorn, Sundial requires more concentration as it is longer and bit more exposed. The views from the summit are beautiful and well worth it. Overall, the “trail” passed Blanche is beautiful offers amazing views of streams/waterfalls and solitude. Please use Leave No Trace principals anytime you are hiking and consider the sensitive nature of off trail ecosystems before going off trail.Show more
