Length: 2.3 mi • Est. 56 m
Please note the trailhead can be difficult to spot. Look for stairs from the Bonneville shore trail. It is about 50 yards north of the creek and somewhat hidden. You will see a brown sign that says Stead Creek Trail. Great trail with a wonderful payoff. This trail is actually an offshoot of the Steed Creek Trail and winds through Hornet Canyon, following Hornet Creek. The end is a beautiful display of water. You'll find a weeping wall, two waterfalls, and a semi deep pool. The giant boulder next to the falls makes a perfect natural seat to catch your breath and take in the sights and sounds. Bring water shoes since you'll need to cross a shallow creek before starting the main leg of the hike. The trail is half sun and half shade. It's not recommended to bring small children as the trail is narrow.Show more

This route follows a section of the Great Western Trail from the base of Mount Francis to the base of Mount Thurston. Then continues north. Approximately 1/2 mile before you reach the summit you will leave the main trail and scramble along a poorly defined trail to the top. The views along this trail and from the top of Mount Thurston are breathtaking. To the South you can see all the way into Salt Lake City and to the West is the Great Salt Lake. During early summer you will enjoy green alpine meadows and wild flowers everywhere.Show more
