Trail shared by Yuriy Syrota

A moving experience to follow the footprints of Utah's pioneers.

Runner Notes

The trail usually clears of snow in May, but wet spots and high creek flow can get your feet wet until late June. Snow covers the trail by November.

Description

The trail climbs from near Little Dell Reservoir up to Big Mountain Pass, following the path blazed by the Donner Party and followed by the Mormon pioneers. This trail is quite smooth, but gets a bit steeper as it climbs the switchbacks to the pass. It's easy-intermediate technically, but pretty strenuous aerobically.
