I hiked Church Fork up to the saddle with Parleys Canyon, put on snowshoes and continued on to the peak. I met quite a few people AND their dogs. It was a great day for a hike.
Salt Lake icon. Church Fork. Please don't cut trails.
A great training climb. Rain / sleet at the bottom, some icy spots mid-mountain, and some deep snow on the ridge. Windy too. Had a 65lb pack on and took about 4 hours, 20 mins round trip. Only saw 2 other people out that day. Fun climb - I'll be back!
Hiked this one a few times from Mill Creek. Nice workout.
A very fun trail run! Went up about seven at night to watch the sunset, super good first date peak too!
Nice 5 mile round trip from Mill Creek Trailhead. The leaves were late-season fall (still pretty, just past prime). Trail was fairly well populated---probably 50+ people on a Saturday morning. Well worth doing!
Hiked with Caroline. It was my 2nd time making it to the summit. I think the first time was in Spring 2005. Fairly easy mountain to climb.
3rd ascent on 2/9/13 alone in snowshoes. Crusty snow. First winter ascent!
11/29/09 - Hiked with Eugene, Zack and Paul on the west ridge, but the latter two called it quits less than half a mile from the summit.
08/31/10 - Morning solo hike on west ridge. 64 min. from parking lot to summit. Had mountain completely to myself.
West Ridge: 03/10/09,05/23/10
What a great hike, and so close to SLC. The views from on top are just outstanding and I really enjoyed spending a little time on the summit before heading back down. There was a group of five on the summit when I got there and many more coming up when I was heading back down.
Get an early start otherwise it will be too crowded. Easy hike at the Church Fork Route. Trying another route this weekend from the SL Valley foothills.
I could not have asked for better weather. Coolish/warmish and sunny, great day. A little muddy up top and the snow is getting slick, but views of surrounding peaks and the Salt Lake metro are fine.
Climbed it several times from the west and Church fork
Climbed from the Church Fork trail head. First time to the peak.
Climbed via Church Fork while out here visiting my son. Plenty of snow after the saddle, and the view from the top was amazing!!
Beautiful day. We drove down from Ogden for this one. Hiked with my wife and twelve year old son. There was a lot of slushy granular snow for about the last 3/4 of a mile, which made for some uncomfortable postholing (we all had shorts on), but it was worth it. Great view. Spent about 30 minutes on the summit. The warm day (about 70 or so) made the descent slushy and muddy, but it is an awesome mountain, and we had a riot. Can't wait to do it again!
Climbed many, many times but my logging will start from 2010.
Church Fork: 1/18/10, 2/4/10
Beautiful day, great views of Olympus.
