This is the standard route to Deseret Peak and South
Willow Lake. There's portions of the trail with little
or no shade, so bring plenty of water. The scenery is
incredible, looking off to the Great Salt Lake desert
to the north and the Tooele Valley and Wasatch Range
to the east. Plenty of trees and shade at the lake.
