Silver Lake - Big Cottonwood Canyon
Hiking area
πŸ‘πŸ‘ Silver Lake it’s one of my most favorite lakes. It’s extremely close to Salt Lake City. You can enjoy the lake within a minute of parking. It has a great restroom β€œfor the outdoors” with running water. If you’re there during the time of day that the visitor center is open they have indoor restrooms...

πŸ‘πŸ‘ This unique waterfall is actually a very easy hike. Although the hike to the base is very strait forward it’s a bit tricky to make the final climb up to the actual cave. Of you want to go inside the cave you have to scramble up a short section on boulders. The water is very cold and you will definit...

Lake Blanche Trailhead

πŸ‘πŸ‘ Numerous list have called Lake Blanche the best hike in Utah. I can see why. It is a bit long but the slope is gentle. The view on the very top is obviously gorgeous, but the view all along the way is beautiful too. My of the way is near the river. And in late June, we enjoyed a meadow of Lakspur ha...

Cecret Lake Trail
Hiking area
πŸ‘πŸ‘ Finally found Cecret Lake 🀫 and it was gorgeous! We took the longer trail from Albion base to make it more adventurous at 4.5 miles. Definitely glad we started in the morning to keep cool from the lack of shade. The steepest part was the switchbacks at the end but once you’re done, you’ve made it!...

Guardsmans Pass Overlook
Scenic spot
😐 Great view,but no legal parking at the overlook. There is a pit toilet. This area is a drop off point for starting a hike or bike on the Wasatch Crest trail or for a hike into Bonanza Flat below. It looks like a good place to park, but parking is not allowed.

πŸ‘πŸ‘ One of my favorite trails! I would rate this as easy. Not a trail I would take a stroller on but easy to carry a child in a carrier. There is one part that I would say is steep but my 2 and 4 year old at the time could handle it. It ends at a really pretty old power plant. It's shaded and takes mayb...
