I climbed Mount Aire on February 22, 1949, Washington's Birthday. As teenagers, we had just read the books by Richard Halliburton whose climb of the Matterhorn and Popocatepetl inspired us to climb the hill just east of Salt Lake City. We dubbed the hill "Mount Halliburton," which we still call it to this day. Only decades later did we learn its real name.

We could not have asked for a better day. The gate was closed and from the gate to the TH we encountered several folks (and dogs)but after the TH we only saw a few others all day. The weather was great and the view from the summit was fantastic.

Great hike! It is an easy hike, but since I am so out of shape it kicked my trash. Only way to get into better shape though is to just keep going!! I hiked it with cubicleslave and soccerman.

I don't know what I was thinking doing this in the summer, very pretty, but man between aire and Millvue was some gnarly bushwacking, actually throughout the hike there was alot. No water, hella hot. Still had fun but if you want to do the whole ridge I would recomend winter.

Did this as a snowshoe, we were on a Millcreek ridge run when the weather turned nasty, so we had to descend quickly, bagged Mt. Aire at the same time.

Good to climb in the evening after work because it is so short. A little steep in parts but nothing terribly bad.

This is a great hike, being from Oregon I haven't hiked much in Utah, this was my first trip to the state. It's a pretty easy hike that takes about an hour up without snow. I found the "shady South side" not really all that shady, something about the South side of a hill will do that I guess. Bring extra water if the weather is hot, you'll want it.

Nyle WaltonRe: Route Climbed: Lambs Canyon, Church Fork, Elbow Fork Date Climbed: Many times

Nyle Walton

It's nice to know someone of a later generation enjoys hiking in the Wasatch. I would appreciate it if you would contact Ronald DeWaal who claims to have climbed Mount Aire twelve times. His phone number is in the Salt Lake phone book (801-533-0523 I think). He's too old and backward to use a computer.

Dorkteam6Route climbed: Birch hollow trail up and Elbow fork trail down.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2005
Came from the birch hollow trail and summited the ridge to the east. My brother and I saw the most beautiful sunset ever. The whole ridge was caked in a neon pink color. Took a nasty bushwack over to the ridge below Mt.Aire and then summited. Came back down elbow fork trail and walked back to the car. Also summited on 04/25/05

Awesome snowshoe. I like the area between the summer trailhead and the ridge, preety forest. After the ridge, the final hike up the summit was on very sun crusted snow. I am grateful for really agressive snowshoes, though I still might have wanted to bring my crampons.

mountainTRIALS.comRoute Climbed: Mt. Aire from lower pipeline trailhead Date Climbed: May 21, 2005  Sucess!

mountainTRIALS.com

Exhilerating run from the lower pipeline trailhead (as the gate is still closed to elbow fork) to the summit of Mt. Aire. It took me 1 hr 2 min and 3 sec to from trailhead to touching the summit log. As you can see I am a little obsessed with timing myself. I also saw a cougar in this area last year (2004) on the pipeline trail just below elbow fork very near the road. I accidently "snuck up" on it from behind while mountain biking. When my brain finally registered what it was I slammed on my brakes which squeaked and spooked it so it took off. I was glad it ran off, but couldn't help wishing I could've had more time to admire it.
