Circle All Peak is a 3.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Salt Lake City, Utah that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
Hiked on 11/11. The snow melt is all but gone which makes for a clear hike. Great short hike especially with the limited daylight hours.
This was a great hike! It was a bit steep and muddy in places with some minor snow melt but definitely worth the climb. I missed the fall colors unfortunately but there was a certain beauty in all the rows of bare aspen trees still.
Follow along like the other commentators note. When you get to stopping point don't stop. Head on down to the viewpoint that you can see to the southwest. There's no clear trail, but the little bushwhacking is absolutely worth it to get to the end of the point!
A lot of reward for so little work! It's a pretty short hike but it can get fairly steep at times. Most of the yellow Aspen leaves have fallen off and cover the ground, add that to the recent rainfall and you get some slippery parts of the trail. Don't miss the last left turn which actually heads towards Circle All Peak! There's a log that makes it look like you shouldn't cross it, but you must! Not a whole lot of room on the peak, but there are a couple spots to sit and one to lay down on. Again, the views are really nice and you can clearly see Kessler Peak, Dromedary, O'Sullivan, and Twin Peaks. I'll definitely be trying this one in the winter!
Very nice trail to a point at the end of a ridge that puts you in the middle of the Big Cottonwood drainage. I presume it got the name Circle-All because the higher mountains circle all around you.
The lower reaches of the trail are the steepest section as you briefly climb high above the stream. Then the slope becomes more moderate as you climb through beautiful aspen groves. When you reach the ridgeline, step across a log onto a less worn path that follows the ridgeline out to the small rise at the end of the ridge.
