A wonderful family hike to beautiful alpine lake in the Little Cottonwood Canyons Albion Basin

This is a very short 1 mile hike to a beautiful alpine lake in the Albion Basin region near Alta and Snowbird Ski Resorts. This area is very popular on summer weekends so parking may be difficult. Take the time to relax at the lake and take lots of photos of your family with the mountains as a backdrop.

Lone Peak via Jacobs Ladder

Hiking | 11.7 miles (8.2 miles away)
Lone Peak is the "notched" peak at the top of the huge mountain on the south side of the road as your traveling up Little Cottonwood canyon.  The peak is visible from most of the Salt Lake and Utah County areas.  All approaches to the peak are long with substantial elevation gain.  My son (Tyler) and I decided a couple weeks previous that we were going to do the hike.  A friend...

Lone Peak, UT (Jacob's Ladder / Bear Canyon)

Hiking | 14.2 miles (8.2 miles away)
I hiked Lone Peak with my 9 year old son and a good friend. We ascended following the Jacob's Ladder trail. While we had read that there was limited/no water July on, we found ample water at the junction (which cuts across to Outlaw Cabin) as well as further up the trail. At about 10k feet, we were heading off the trail to allow my 9 year old to use the "facilities"...

Long hike to Stewart Falls
by rjmcm on Jul 15, 2009
Aspen Grove, Utah, United States
Hiking | 6.3 miles (11.4 miles away)
I thought that I would be taking a nice leisurely hike up to Stewart Falls from the Sundance resort. What transpired was a nearly three hour long journey which had me walking along the road for a good part of the time. This was partially my fault, as I just set off in a direction, hoping to hook up with the trail. But the map from the sports shop at...

Rock Canyon to Squaw Peak

Pleasant View, Utah, United States
Hiking | 7.9 miles (11.7 miles away)
8.5 mi.  (4.2 mi. to summit).  8 hrs.  Hiked to squaw peak from rock canyon park. Then hiked around trying to find a way to get up to squaw peak parking lot (pretty far away- another mountain, pretty much).  Wasn't able to do it so went straight down once it started to get dark. Search and rescue (the sheriff) was little help even after I sent him my gps coordinates. Just slowed us down. While on the...

Dry Creek Canyon

Alpine, Utah, United States
Hiking | 6.8 miles (7.7 miles away)
I decided to get one more good hike in before winter, and I chose Dry Creek Canyon because I have never been there before, and I have always wanted to explore this corner of the Wasatch. I arrived at the trail head around 8:30 and was plesantly surprised to find only one vehicle. The trail is an old service road that was once used to maintain a pipeline that brought water to a...

Timpanogos Cave Trail
by tbtanner on Aug 13, 2012
Mutual Dell, Utah, United States
Hiking | 3.6 miles (6.6 miles away)
We finally got around to checking out Timpanogos Cave. A pretty tough walk up to the cave then a fun trip through 3 caves. Would have loved to do the tour of the cave again - perhaps next year combined with the picnic lunch 1/4 mile away and then a stop at the water park.

Trip stats, data, and additional information can be found below this summaryThe trip to Red Pine Lake can easily be enjoyed as a day hike, and is definitely one of the top places to visit each summer.  I've done it before, but it had been about 9 years and I didn't have the time or energy during that trip to hike up to the upper lakes.. which is a very rewarding experience.So...

Hidden Hills, Utah, United States
Hiking | 6.5 miles (9.3 miles away)
Our family held a family reunion in Park City in 2007. I thought that while I was in Utah I would attempt a peak. Lone Peak turned out to be a fairly tough hike. I started around 5AM, solo, and made it to a false summit at around noon. Unfortunately, I only had my GPS track (no map, mistake), and I climbed myself into a dead end. ...
