We got a pass to brighton and solitude, both great ski resorts. during the off ski season we love to hike donut falls, dog lake, lake blanche, to name a few. There's so much to do and we never run out of places to hike,...More

We loved the gorgeous scenery. Drove out from downtown (around 40 minutes one way) and the fall foliage was amazing.

I love Big Cottonwood Canyon for its beautiful mountain sidewalls, ski resorts and some good hikes. The Fall is particularly a great time to go.

This is one of my favorite places in Utah. It's a short drive from SLC, is easily accessible, and has something for everyone: day hikes; backpacking trails; short, flat trails even kids can do; fishing; snowsports in the winter.

The Wasatch mountains boarder the east side of Salt Lake City. The little Cottonwood canyon is easily accessible. Breathe taking scenery. Two ski resorts. Many hiking trails to be hiked. Great day for a family picnic at Silver Lake at the end of the canyon.

I've hiked many trails up Big Cottonwood Canyon. One of my favorites is Donut Falls. It is a family friendly hike where a watefall flows into a cave at the end. It is even more spectacular in the winter when the waterfall freezes. It is...More

A little chilly at first, but a beautiful day to wander through the canyon. No oppressive heat like you often find in the summer - snow covered peaks, quiet and relaxing.

Close enough and wonderful scenery. The drive is quite enjoyable and the hiking trails are wonderful. Each time of the year brings a different beauty, but certainly fall is my favorite. Summer is a good choice too when temperature there is cooler than in the...More

Big Cottonwood Canyon is a wonderful place to visit in all seasons of the year. Great skiing and winter sports. Beautiful mountain flowers in the Spring. An escape from the heat in the summer with fun hikes. Colorful trees and shrubs in the Fall.

I agree with the previous posters. We rented a car and drove ourselves. The worst thing about self drive is the driver needs to keep their eyes on the road lots of twists and turns. Drive yourself to a trail head park the... More
