Bountiful mountain paths not far from Salt Lake City.
Fresh mountain air, meadows of wildflowers and babbling creeks. The hikes around Alta and Snowbird and nothing short of serene. From family friendly trails to ridge-line scrambles and challenging climbs, there are many routes to take you away from that hectic city feeling.
The area around Alta has a mining history, as it was formerly host to the Michigan City Mine, which closed back in 1927. Amongst the wildflowers and wooded paths, you may spot some old mining relics- which are fascinating from a far, but potentially dangerous to touch!
Located 8,569 feet above sea level and just 30 minutes from Salt Lake Valley, Alta and Snowbird are the perfect respite from the heat of Salt Lake summers.
