This is a ridge trail that simultaneously offers views of Salt Lake City to the west looking down Emigration Canyon and views east of Little Dell Reservoir and the often snowcapped Bald Mountain. The trail starts at the high point of Emigration Canyon Rd and begins with a short steep climb to the ridge. It ends near Birch Springs. Setup a shuttle at Affleck Park if you only want to do it one way,

Definitely better trails to do. The last part before you get to Afflek Park is nice but muddy and steep downhill. We went back via Kiilyon Canyon to see some different scenery. But this led us to the highway and we had to walk back along the highway to our car. Yuck. Don’t do that. It would better to do the Lookout Point Trail that leaves from the campsite in Affleck Park. Just a suggestion.
