Great hike, we had a blast glissading the ridge snowdrifts on the way down! Saw tons of Horny Toads.

Beautiful wildflowers, 4 snakes, a handful of horny toads. Came from Killyon Canyon and enjoyed the great views at the top with some coffee.

seanpeckhamBig Mountain / Lookout Peak loop
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2010

I ran a 16 mile, ~3500' loop over Big Mountain and Lookout Peak, based on this mountain biking route, starting and ending at the Pioneer Trail parking area. The trail did not quite go to the very summit of either, and somehow I didn't have it in me to take detours (except by accident), so I don't know how much this counts as peakbagging, but it counts as taking a good beating and as excellent solitude with incredible views. It took me 4 hours to complete, part of which was spent waiting for my friend on a mountain bike who got behind because the climb up Big Mountain is pretty brutal for a bike, then broke his derailleur, got lost, coasted down City Creek Canyon, ended up at my residence, and had to drive my car back up to get me and his car at the trailhead. Kind of a crazy day.

Various routes and climbs, about a dozen total. probably my favorite trip was a ski tour, we started up the Mountain dell road from the closure at Little dell, gained the ridge at via Afleck Park then skied up the main trail. The Descent was via City Creek Canyon, skied a few laps off the north face and then a great cruise nearly to the mouth of the canyon. Long day!!

Very nice hike. Beautiful day with lots of flowers. I remember one section where I had to run from the bugs in the slippery mud.

Started at Affleck Park, then continued to Grandview Peak an dback via the Wasatch 100 route that skirts the NE slopes of Lookout. Note: When starting at Affleck Park you can start at campground #6, but must quickly cross a bridge and turn left followed a few hundred yards later by another bridge...this actually puts you in a different part of the campground, an area also accessible by cars, but the trail is lush and beautiful and worth the extra hike. The actual trail starts at the red gate and is refered to as Burnt Flats on a nearby map.

Very pleasant hike, with views of Red Butte, Emigration, and City Creek canyons. Also view of Salt Lake Valley and Lake much different than those from more southern Wasatch area. Started hike from Affleck park.

This is a nice climb to do in spring. It was a beautiful and warm day but very windy on the ridge. The view was great and I could see the Uinta Mountains off in the distance and many of the peaks to the north. There was still lots of snow on Grandview Peak. I had been to this area before. Last year I saw a baby moose that was only 1-2 weeks old. This year I saw two rattlesnakes on the trail.

A great early Spring hike with beautiful wildflowers along the trail. Awsome views of the higher peaks in the Wasatch and seldom seen views to the North.

So-so weather, not a soul in sight (Sundays are good), excellent snow once I got on top of the ridge, all the way to the top. It wasn't readily clear which summit is highest...the East or West...I couldn't really see the other because of low visibility. Started at 7:20AM, and didn't need snowshoes until coming back through Killyon Canyon. I got a few good pictures out of it when the sun came out for a few seconds.

The trail from Mountain Dell used to be a bushwack a decade or so ago. It appears from the route submissions that the trail has been improved. Nice views.

Nice summit, best climbed in spring or fall due to lower elevation.

Decided to leave the snowshoes in the vehicle - big mistake. A long exhausting day slogging through deep and mushy snow, but otherwise a beautiful day.
