emilieTough little peak!  Sucess!

Climbed this with a friend and it kicked both our butts. Seems like it's just the sustained steep grade that does it. We've done many other longer hikes with more elevation gain that felt easier. Great training hike!

4/8/2016---Mount Grandeur: Utah----8,299’
We truly went through the 3 seasons on this hike…it was incredibly windy and cold the first half of the hike, then oddly enough the higher we climbed and more exposed we got the sunnier and warmer we became. Roughly the last 200’ vertical feet were in the snow, which was absolutely awesome!! I have to do another hike in the snow soon!!

I’m sad to say that neither Scott nor I were in good enough shape for this hike. I’m not sure if it was the altitude, or if it was just the previous 6 days of hiking catching up to us, but we were hurting pretty bad and almost called it quits halfway up.
o Begin at 5000’ and end at 8299’
o Approximately 3300’ of elevation game over 2.5 miles
o 5 miles roundtrip

Crazy high temps in the valley made us escape to the mountains. Hadn't done Grandeur yet and decided to head up. Great trail with wonderful views. No wonder it is a Salt Lake staple.

Beautiful view at the top. Trail was not too steep but definitely a workout. Took an hour and 22 minutes to get from the trailhead to the summit.

Hiked up with my son Matthew to get him started on working towards some of the bigger summits in the Wasatch. He did fine, and taking our time with snack breaks it took us four hours. It was cold for the first half of the hike in the trees (most of the leaves had already fallen off, but there were a few patches of fall colors remaining), but perfect conditions higher up when the sun came out. There were nice views to the south of the peaks from Gobblers Knob to Mount Olympus.

Took me about 130 minutes to reach the top on a hot August day via the West Slopes. Took about 100 minutes to get down - it pounds the knees on the way down wished I brought trekking poles.

Nice to have this close for locals; easy access, nice work out, proper summit at the top. Go up the West, down to Church Fork; back up Church Fork and down the West for the Grandeur Double.

Easy walk-up, but a little too far for a before-work hike.

We had grand plans for our first trip to SLC but the weather sucked and limited us to shorter lower routes like this. We still had fun and this quick trip left us in the clouds with no view but we got out. It was Memorial weekend so even with the bad weather the trail was BUSY. Rain started right as we got back to the car.

After living in Utah and looking at this peak for 9 months, I finally grabbed some friends and summited! My legs were tired after 2 full days of activity previous to this mountain, but was up and down in about 3 hours.

Did this from Churchfork. The parking and picnic grounds were closed. A group of three of us headed up to the summit. It was a nice gradual trail to the top. Nothing terrible about this hike my friends! Also the views were rather gorgeous. I cuddled with a strange dog and saw lots of kids on spring break. Thanks Grandeur!

This one is short and sweet. It is a great after work jaunt through the woods. I went up in the afternoon and it was nice and shady most of the way up.

Great views all around, would highly recommend. The trail isn't too steep either and allows for a pretty good trail run if that is your thing.

2/4/17 Suffered up the West Face in snow and mud slop in an hour ten, and ran down to Church Fork.

2/28/15 Ran up from Church Fork with my awesome wife. It was snowy the entire way and bitter cold and windy on the summit. We had a great time though!
Headed straight over to Wire to do that quickly to get in shape for Cactus to Clouds route of Mt. San Jacinto!
