Started from the Jewish Community Center trailhead at 6:15. Cloudy, windy evening but great temps. Went up Bonneville Shoreline to the summits. The wind was so strong it nearly tipped me over! Down the ridge back to the BST then down Limekiln Gulch up onto the U then back to the car. Great round trip in about two hours!
Nice little hike from Terrace Hills Dr. trailhead. Took a very leisurely pace and took a little less than 2 hours total car to car. Looks like it would be a great place to snowshoe in the dead of winter.
Hiked it quickly and also did a little trail running. It's a nice little hike.
Great early spring hike. I'm not sure I'd go up Perrys Hollow (aka, the Bobsled Run) again for fear of getting run over by a mountain bike, but the old cars were fascinating. I descended via Spring Gulch.
Quick hike. Great sunset view!! Saw a wolf as well.
Nice short hike
3/29/2013 Snagged them both after coming off Little Black Mountain.
5/4/2012. This is one of my favorite areas to go trail running.
Came up from Terrace Hills Drive. Easy walk for a great view.
01/06/12 It was a summit first for two of my friends and my new puppy. Could see the Ghost of Lake Bonneville from the top (aka The Inversion) =)
01/07/12 in combination with Little Black. Made for a great run
Pleasant way to begin the calendar winter, a dusting of fresh snow to liven things up. With ZeeJay. Went on to Little Black Mountain and beyond.
Started at Perrys Hollow and climbed Twin Peaks first, then Little Black Mt, and then all the way to the high point of Black Mountain. It wasn't bad until after Little Black Mt at which point we had to choose between knee deep snow or lots of brush. 13 miles RT and over 5000' of elevation gain.
It was a cold day up on those "twins"
Run from Ave Twins to Mt Van Cotttttt in the AM.
Went up on nice winter day. Took 3 wrong turns and ended up going direct up the west face. Managed to turn a routine hike into a sporty climb. Pretty views!
A cold and windy quickie in between snow storms. Nice little hike though.
Nice stroll in the foothills above SLC.
There were giant illuminated Olympic rings on the Avenues Twins during the 2002 Winter Games. I remember some people were concerned about possible environmental damage the rings may cause, but when I went up there in May 2002, I could see no damage at all.
Close to home and a fun quick hike. Not much else to say except a good view!
11/30 & 11/31/13 - 2nd Ascent via mt bike to ride down the Terror segment! Also almost up there the following day to ride Steep & Deep.
4/11/14 - biked scrappers, steep & deep
#4 - 3/19/17 trail run
I was going to wake up early to do a harder peak, but woke up late. I still wanted to get out, so I decided to do the Twins. Started from 650 E and 18th Avenue. Very easy hike. Offers great views of the mountains and of the city.
up and down in less than 2 hours for an afternoon snack.
