Description

The Mount Aire Trail is a short but steep climb to a peak that offers good views of Parley's Canyon. The route begins by following Elbow Fork for a short distance before ascending straight up the drainage. Eventually, switchbacks provide a little relief from the relentless climb, but not nearly enough. Upon cresting the top of the peak, enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding area. Pro Tip: Summit Mount Aire in the autumn to see your surroundings erupt in fiery fall color.

Steep, beautiful hike! Mildly overgrown near the summit. 1.7 miles out and back.
