A steep route up the west face of Grandeur Peak with wildflowers in season and excellent views of the valley.

Overview

Description

This is a steep trail to Grandeur Peak that never really lets up all the way to the top. The trail takes a direct route up the western face of the Wasatch Front. The first mile or so has very little underbrush and no shade to speak of. This portion of the trail has loose gravel and sand over hardpacked dirt below so be sure you wear shoes with decent traction.

Higher up, the trail becomes rockier, sticking to the ridgeline, and showcases yellow and blue wildflowers, a few, scraggly trees and lovely views of the valley, Mount Olympus, and the adjacent canyons. It's an intense climb, but the views up top make it worth it.
