We spent a week in Park City and explored numerous trails. We aren't avid hikers but are pretty fit so we thought we'd try this trail. It is not for beginning and although we are in pretty good shape it was challenging. I am extremely...More

Lake Blanche is a great spot. The trail is a steady climb all the way to the lake, but never really gets super steep. You just never really get a break - you gain 2700 ft in elevation so keep that in mind. Make sure...More

My husband loves to run this trail while training for Spartan races... or just because :) I find it challenging... it takes me 2 hours to the top at a steady pace with a few rest breaks. I usually like to stay at the top...More

I’ll have to say even after reading reviews, I still underestimated this hike. It was by far the longest and hardest one we have done. The views are gorgeous as you continue to climb all the way to the top to the lake. It is...More

This is a great hike. It is on the longer side and mostly up hill. I wouldn't do it as a first hike but if you've done a few this is a must do hike.

I wanted to make a hiking afternoon in the Big Cottonwood Canyon. I chose this trail because it was the favorite spot of my Air BnB host, and I was not disappointed at all. The landscape from the bottom and from the top are not...More

We found this trek to be a little demanding. It took us almost 2.15 hrs to go up! The trail was steep all the way up, was covered in snow and we were not wearing waterproof hiking shoes and so it was sometimes slippery to...More

This is a great workout, but also a beautiful hike. We hiked this July 24. It is a very popular trail, so we started at the trailhead at 7am, which was fortunate since we were on the way down when it started to get hot....More

The end of March will probably be pretty muddy. There is still quite a bit of snow up there. The runoff should start soon and cause even more mud. The best time is in the summer or in the fall.

Drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon - approximately 7200 S./Ft. Union Blvd until you reach the S curve. Parking on the right. Might be labeled Mill B South.
