Bloods Lake Trail is a short hike that great for the whole family at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon in Wasatch County. The trailhead can easily be reached from Midway, Salt Lake, and Park City at the top of Old State Route 152, just below Guardsman Pass. There are breathtaking views right from the parking area! With a short distance to the lake, it is an easy hike with the exception of the last portion, which is a steep and rocky trail. Once at Blood Lake, you have the option to stay, turn around, or continue on to other lakes in the area including Lackawaxen Lake, Brimhall Lake, and Silver Lake The lake is small and clean. If you go to the Southeast corner there is even a rope swing - great for a quick afternoon dip in the cool water on a hot day. This hike is best experienced during the fall for its fall colors and during ate spring and summer for it's display of wildflowers. Guardsman Pass is closed during the winter, which makes this trail inaccessible from November to April. This trail is on private property. Be respectful to the land owner and do not leave trash.

Great, easy hike. My 2 year-old walked almost the whole way. It is super muddy and icy...but still fun! I will be doing this one again next summer with all three kids.

Easy out and back trail leading to the beautiful Bloods lake. Rocky trail descending to the lake. Went on a week day when it was not too crowded, and we found a shady spot to sit and dip our feet in the icy water of the lake. Would be a great picnic spot.
