We really enjoyed this hike. Despite Big Cottonwood canyon being overrun on a Sunday, we were the only two people on this trail. It's a steep climb and there is still a lot of snow on the last mile. We had micro spikes which worked great on the steeper sections. The views from the saddle next to the Honey Comb Skis are incredible. Later in the year this would also make a great loop hike by continuing to Lake Mary and then descending into Brighton.
I highly recommend this the, esp on weekends.
