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.

Hike to Doughnut Falls, UT
by JakePehrson on Aug 23, 2009
Hiking | 1.9 miles (11.9 miles away)
Doughnut falls is an easy hike for both old and young.  I took my entire extended family including young kids, 2 pregnant ladies (one was my wife).  My 2 year old son walked the hike by himself.  Needless to say this is a fairly short hike.  You can easily be up and back within 1.5 hours.  The hike gains very little elevation.  Right before you reach the falls there is a couple of rocks...

Canyon Enterprises, Utah, United States
Hiking | 7.1 miles (8.3 miles away)
I wanted to go on a couple of backpack trips again this summer so I need to start getting in better shape.  I thought I picked a fairly easy hike, but this hike was much harder then I anticipated.  It was uphill the entire way.I went with Jeff Wood (friend) and Ben Pehrson (brother).  From the beginning my back was out of place (which rarely happens to me) luckily Ben carried my small pack...

Hiking | 11.7 miles (5.8 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...

Climb per mile: 766ftAscent Rating: 1.4Distance Rating: 1.1Overall Rating: 3.2The GPS data has correct elevation data for all points except the starting elevation, so it is over-reporting the climb.I recorded the trip in 3 separate tracks and merged them together, but EveryTrail is reporting the length .6 miles over for some reason.This isn't the furthest I've gone on this trail, but it is the first time this year that I'd not encountered...

It was a hard hike, especially with 60 lbs of gear on my back.  But it wasn't unbearable by any means.  It gets steeper toward the very top when you get to the switchbacks,...

Hiking | 14.2 miles (5.8 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"...

Hiking | 6.5 miles (6.2 miles away)
A great early-in-the-year hike. Much of the hike is exposed, so the snow tends to melt earlier than on other trails, although in May, there will often be snow still in the canyon. Hiked this with my 5 year old son.

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...

Hiking | 5.6 miles (13.6 miles away)
We were a little hesitant when pulling into the parking lot at the top of Millcreek canyon, for the dark storm clouds were gathering overhead quite rapidly.Indeed, about 45 minutes into the hike, the raindrops began.  We had our ponchos though, and we pressed on.Soon enough though, the storm got very serious with high winds, loud thunder and lightning all around us, and drenching rain.  We almost turned back but we were...

From Wasatch Blvd. drive 9 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, turn right to the Jordan Pines area. The road turns to gravel, continue until the Donut Falls parking area. You can take the road that continues past the parking area or the trail. They meet in 1/2 mile. Short, easy 3/4 mile hike that goes to a beautiful waterfall that falls through a cave like grotto. The last 150 ft. getting to...

Hiking | 2.5 miles (12.3 miles away)
The Dog Lake trailhead is located at the Mill D North Fork trailhead about 9 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon.  It is an easy trail to follow and although there was still some small snow banks along the the trail towards the top the trail was completely dry and easy to navigate.  I forgot my Etrex Vista HCx so these tracks are from my sister's (Julia) Garmin Forerunner 305.  I would have had the track going back down the...
