Cedar Hills, UT
6.0 mi 9.7 km Cedar Hills, UT
Bad / Closed
Update
Snowy, Icy, Fallen Trees - Snow is hit before 1st Falls as leftovers from an avalanche. Tons of downed full size trees and branches blocks trail and forces onto the snow field. Seems safe for now as you are not over the stream and is reasonably thick. Watch your step as it getting thin in places. Second snow isn't encountered until about 3 miles up the trail and isn't bad. Shortly after that it's crampons and ice axe required as the snow fields get steep and very slick. I heard from those who went further up (with better gear on hand) that getting above Primrose Cirque is currently inadvisable from Aspen Grove side as dangerous crossing conditions are present further up (in or near an area I heard referred to as Upper Killer Snow Hole). If you want to summit, probably check back in August or maybe even September
