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.

It doesn't get much better than this: a cardio workout, stunning views, various forests, a water fall, and fields of flowers. All within a short drive of downtown.

Ended up taking the west fork in the meadow and so did a bunch of trail-finding to get to the peaks. Found the trail by the stream on the way down and much easier. Spooky climb to get to the spine- not sure if we went up/down at the right spot- didn't seem obvious. Also ran in to a rattlesnake. Snow is pretty much gone. Beautiful quiet hike- couldn't believe how few people were climbing it.

Fun. You need to bypass snow by staying towards north side of the boulder field. You can gain the ridge by carefully route finding through the cliff bands (look for ramps, use handholds) to the northern end of the ridge. Once at the ridge, it's snow free to both peaks.
