Description

Mount Superior is possibly the most iconic and well known peak in the Wasatch Mountains.

Its visibility from Alta and Snowbird ski areas make it a highly coveted and visited attraction.

The views from the summit do not disappoint! Hiking Mount Superior is a fairly straightforward endeavor with a 3,000 foot climb in 5.4 miles roundtrip.

Park at the Our Lady of the Snow church and follow the dirt road that turns into single track trails.

Once you gain the pole line pass the trail becomes more rocky and faint, but it keeps to the ridge winding and weaving it's way through the loose rock until the summit.
