Add to the View BM hikeSteep Mountain
Just above Draper and near Suncrest
Rather than create a mountain page for this one, I thought an album might be an acceptable way to present this little mountain for a hike that can be combined with a hike up to View Benchmark. For many people, the hike up to View BM and back won't satisfy their overall conditioning needs or they might simply like to make a longer hike out of the View BM experience. By adding this as as a side trip to Steep Mountain which will add an additional three miles to your day and another 700' or more of elevation gain. I might add it makes a great snowshoe hike as there is no avalanche danger in that area and will give you a great workout as well as great views of the Salt Lake area with Draper right below you and mountains on both sides of you. Using the same trailhead as for View BM, this is a nice little hike to do when all you have is a few hours and need something to do. Steep Mountain is seen by thousands of people everyday as they whiz past on I-15 as it makes its way around Point of the Mountain.
