From Millcreek Side.
Not worth it
I went up the Church Fork trail and down the Burch Hollow trail. Being a Wasatch newbie, I thought the part along the ridge between Grandeur and Church Fork Peaks made a good introduction to cross-country travel, deer trails, and bushwhacking through Gambel oak scrub.

Climbed up Church Fork which was nice and quick because of the lack of snow. A stark contrast to the rest of the hike which involved severe postholing and waiting for moose to move away from the ridge. Great views from the top though.
as part of the Grandeur to Mount Aire ridge hike, we topped this one and several others, named and unnamed.
Climbed 5 times:
1/18/11 - Via Grandeur Peak, Mount Aire Descent
1/16/10 - Via Grandeur Peak, Mount Aire Descent
2/3/10 - Via Grandeur Peak, Church Fork Peak Descent
1/17/09 - Via Grandeur Peak, Mount Aire Descent
2/4/06 - Via Grandeur Peak, Mount Aire Descent
Hiked up Burch Hollow which is a nice route. There was some snow on top of the ridge. Didn't see anyone else on the mountain that day.
Missed the turn to head up Burch Hollow so elected to hike Pipeline to the start of the Mt Aire trail before heading west along the ridge to Church Fork Peak. Roughly 11 miles round-trip.
