Sandy, Utah Map

great trail.. but not well marked after the lake.. lots of fun tho and great view from the top

Last one mile was hard, especially last 0.5 miles is really hard. Way back isn't that bad. Be careful near the waterfalls.

Hiked the East Ridge today and it is awesome - wildflowers in full bloom and outstanding views! There is some exposure toward the summit - but very manageable during the summertime with no snow. Final push is a scramble - but just keeping going up and you will find the summit.

Easy trail for our kids. They liked to read the signs and enjoyed climbing the spread of natural rock formations. There were some huge pine trees and the view at the end was lovely even if part of the view was the Snowbird Resort.

The crown jewel of little cottonwood canyon! I love this hike. It always surprises me how steep it is in the last mile.

Great views. Steep climb but not too long. Beautiful!

Short, and beautiful!

I started off Wasatch blvd and that part has a lot of 2 foot log risers (would be harder for kids) nice views. It was in the 90's so crossing the streams when you go around the reservoir felt great. I ended on Stone Mountain Lane. That path down was smooth and easier than coming off Wasatch. Overall, fun hike.

There are multiple ways to get from the Snowbird base to the top of Hidden Peak, on both the Peruvian and the Gad valley sides. The summer trail map on the Snowbird website shows them all. Some are shorter than others, but they are all strenuous, because you are climbing 3000 ft over a relatively short distance, and at a high elevation to boot. I always go up the Peruvian Ridge trail for the last part, because the views are great and the attention I have to pay to not slipping off the side partially distracts me from the sense that I am about to have a heart attack. The wildflowers are beautiful right now and it's awesome that you can ride the tram down after 10 AM. If you want to hang out and get food and drink, there's plenty of options. Even music sometimes. Not a wilderness experience, but still excellent.

Great test with the trail following the mountain runoff. Rocky section precedes the last portion of the climb to the lower waterfall, so be prepared to keep pushing right up through the final section...views are xlnt in spots!

We just went on Friday and this is the perfect time of year to do the trail. All of the wild flowers in bloom, and at least 10° cooler up there than in the Salt Lake Valley. Would definitely recommend doing the full trail up to Cecret Lake. Note that right now there is a small detour in the middle of the trail, due to some reconstruction, but it is not a big deal.

A great workout with a rewarding view!
