Steep and fun to climb! We saw a baby rattle snek so be aware! The views were absolutely stunning!

This one is a leg burner for sure. The trail is easy to follow and the views are pretty great. You gain elevation fast! The monument to Jack is heart warming.

This is a can't miss for gorgeous views of Salt Lake City. It is very exposed so bring plenty of water on a warm day. There are some slick spots as well so trekking poles might assist with confidence when you are on the return trip. For a more in depth description with photos, take a peek at my blog post:

Short and steep. Great views from the top and the most tender little memorial. Plan on spending some time at the summit reading and/or writing in the journals ❤️

I used to hike this mountain in the 80's. I'm now 64 and this was my first time back up in 29 years. Steep, fast climb and worth every step. Found the memorial to little Jack Edwards on top and it added a whole new dimension to this hike. I buried a time capsule on the summit with my kids in 1989 but couldn't find it. I love this hike!
