Getting There

Take the 14600 South Exit off I-15 and head East for 2/3 of a mile and turn right on Traverse Ridge Road.  Follow Traverse Ridge Road for 1.1 mile and turn right on Vintage View Lane.  Continue 1/4 mile up Vintage View to the Culdesac where you can see the trail above you. 

Route Description

Start at the Vintage View culdesac (Elevation 5270).  When driving up,
you can see the trail heading up the mountain on the right.  Head less
than 100 meters up the paved drive up to connect to Ann's
Trail/Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Continue up the trail about a 1/4
mile until you reach an intersection and head right.  After just over a
tenth of a mile, you can either go down the BST towards the houses below
or you can break off left on the trail that heads straight up the ridge
of Steep Mountain.  Simply follow the steep trail up the ridge until
you meet the dirt road on top of the ridge.  From here, go right (West)
on the dirt road just over a 1/4 mile to the summit where there is a
wind flag on top (Elevation 6196).  The total mileage is almost exactly a
mile from bottom to Summit.



If you want to get nearly exactly 1000 feet of vertical, you can start
down at the Bonneville Shoreline Trail near the intersection of Traverse
Ridge Road and Vintage View Lane.  This adds about 1/3 of a mile.
