This hike is fun in early spring. With snowmelt crashing down into the many streams and main river, there's plenty of white noise to block out any road sounds.
This trail is super gorgeous! The 3.8-mile trail rises out from the foothills into a decently thick forest with lots of shade. You'll be walking next to a small stream for most of the ascent and descent.
Skiing Alta is excellent. Skiing powder at Alta is more excellent. Skiing powder at Alta with a bunch of rad friends is most excellent. Read along, share in the stoke and look at cool pics!
There's some snow in Utah! Actually, quite a bit of snow! While the valley still looks like fall for the most part, driving 30 to 40 minutes up the canyon will get you into an early winter.
Want some serious exposure? You'll get it with Devil's Castle in Alta, Utah. This hike is no joke, and definitely not for the faint of heart!
