Climb 4,000 feet on this great trail to fantastic views over the Wasatch Valley and Salt Lake City. This is a steep, Class 3, climb up 4,000 to the top of a peak with great views over Salt Lake City and the surrounding Wasatch Mountains. You will be surprised at how abruptly you leave the bustling city below and find yourself high in an alpine environment. This is a good peak for budding mountaineers to start with.

Beautiful hike, steep trail. The upper section before the saddle was slick with snow and mud. Views from the peak were stunning. Someone left a mailbox up there today for everyone to sign their names.

I actually did this hike back in early April. Killer views at the top, but really great views at the saddle as well.
