Description

This is one of the steepest hikes in the Wasatch mountains.

The trail follows steep switchbacks through the forest for just over 2 miles with 3,000 feet of elevation gain.

The trail is a little tricky to find, but it's worth it for the summit views.

The steep terrain keeps it from being very busy despite its proximity to the Big Cottonwood Canyon road and the very popular Doughnut Falls trail.
