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.

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.

Fun trail! It was great in early July. the meadows open up near the top. Butterflies were everywhere! Keep going until you find the small pond. Once there look up to see Twin Peaks. Astonishing views in all directions!

Beginning of the Triple Traverse, Twins to Dromedary and down Sundial to the basin and out. Glacades and awesome 4/5 scrambling if you push it to the peaks. Lots of remaining snow makes the ascent to the ridge line slow going, but def keep going. Incredible views on an immaculate adventure.

Go for the solitude and a great workout. The views at the end are great, but the peaceful hike without the crowds was well worth it.

This trail was beautiful! It felt so remote even though it was easy to access from BCC. We only passed a hand full of hikers which was surprising. When we got up towards the lakes the tail forks off. This was our first time on this hike so we had no idea what way to go. If you want to go all the way up to twin peaks take the trail going toward the east ridge across the stream. We took the trail that forks off toward the west ridge. It turns into just a bunch of rocks. We followed the cairn's as best we could but the trail seemed to disappear as we got higher on the rock face. Next time we will take the other way so we can get to the top of twin peaks. I think this is one of the better hikes in BCC. The trail is very steep, so be prepared.
