Tough day-hike that brings you to a breathtaking view of the valley and surrounding peaks.

This route needs a brief overview!
Features: Views — Wildflowers

Description

The trail is beautiful. A break from the typical desert plants and pines found in most of the Wasatch, this trail has significant sections of field grass, maples, and small oaks. There are numerous side trails to venture off and explore as well if your knees want a break from the constant up/downhill that brings you to/from the top of Big Baldy.

No real surprises, the trail is well-worn and easy to follow. Once you get to a ridgeline the trail continues straight to Timpanooke Road, but you'll want to take a left at the rock fire ring if you're headed to Big Baldy. Just before the ridge be sure to stop and admire the terraces built in the 1930's by the CCC!

Recommend 1-2L of water in the summer, apprx half of the hike is exposed to the sun.
