Runner Notes

Ran this on packed snow. It's important to stay in the center of the trail, because the closer you get to the edges, the more likely you'll break through the snow.

Description

Near the Provo Temple, follow Rock Canyon Trail until it forks. Going left (north) on Squaw Peak Trail, it wraps around the mountain, taking you through some decent climbs and beautiful views of Mt. Timpanogos. It's worth spending some time at the top, taking in the view of mountains you just can't see from the valley.

Flora & Fauna

Within an hour or so of finishing this hike/run, a cat was sighted near Rock Canyon Trailhead, which is not unusual for this area.
