This is a great, short trail within the reachs of SLC, took us 2-3 hours and the views were magnificent!
Way Easy! I saw a lot of families with little kids climb it. It is awesome for an easy summit.
Nice easy hike on a good trail. The crux was a small vertical snow climb about 12 feet high with good steps already kicked for us. Awesome Views from an inevitable peak.
The second time, we were in the area so we ran up it for the heck of it.

A short hike to summit just below 12k' with outstanding views in every direction. I elected to leave the trail almost 200' from the summit and climb thru the rocky slabs for a more interesting arrival. East face has some great multi-pitched techincal climbing possibilities.
Skied a couloir on the NE Face after summiting.
This is the trail that everyone hikes when they go to the Uintas. The view of Hayden and Agassiz Peak is the best. There was a lot of snow on the summit when we were there.
Nice easy warm up hike before continuing on to Reids Pk, Notch Mountain, and Mount Watson.
A relatively easy and thoroughly enjoyable hike.
Easy half day hike. Snow can linger in spots making it a little tricky early in summer. Great views, popular trail, don't expect solitude.
I've climbed this peak many times (Murdock too) including once when I was a small child. It's a great easy peak.
The first time I climbed it was in July 1983 and the last time was September 1 1996.
