Great spring hike when your tired of the snow. Hiking down the ridge of Red Butte can give you some good views of the valley, Wasatch range and the islands. Did about a 5 mile loop

What a great hike with great views of the whole Salt Lake Valley and a profile view of the wasatch front. Lots of animals up there this time of year. Moose, elk, and lots of deer. Lots of snow too but the trail is mostly packed down by other hikers. I especially enjoyed the crows nest tower at the top that gives an elevated perspective to the surrounding area. I don't think I'll hit the living room again without making the extra effort to summit as well. Well worth it.

Great views of the hidden canyon and valley from the Butte. Well worth the hike after Living Room.

Beautiful views especially in the fall! A great way to keep going once you've seen the living room. Very steep on the way down, but worth it!

This trail can be a continuation of the living room trail. Its pretty steep near the end and can be a challenging hike. It gets a lot less busy after the living room.
