Great early season hike. Beautiful view of valley below.
Amazingly live dhere over 7 years and still hadn't been up Grandeur. Intended to go to Thurston, but the gate to Farmington Canyon was closed. Grandeur was a nice backup plan & the fall colors were spectacular. Started early, saw the 8:00 am shadow of the mtn cast across the Salt Lake Valley, and was home for a late breakfast.
love taking the dog up this one
This is usually one of my first climbs of the spring. There are several routes and it's a good warmup in the early season.
Several ascents via Church Fork and West Ridge.
Did this a while back with my mom, sister, and her boyfriend. At the time, there was a little snow, but not much. Saw many of the people. To extend the hike ran from the summit down to the entrance of Millcreek Canyon since I was training for my first 14er
Shared summit with winded group of missionary kids in town for the summer and a thin winded man with an Ironman tattoo on his back. The kids had walked. The ironman had run. Warm, beset by flies. A good soak in Church Fork until I was numb helped soothe all afterwards.
Came up the Church Fork trailhead. My girlfriend gave up just shy of the final incline because of the constant postholing. I made the summit, but clouds had rolled in, making the view much shorter than I would have preferred.
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!
2nd time. I think the first time was in Spring 2005. CF
3rd ascent on 2/9/13 in snowshoes. CF
4 - 6/2/18 W Grandeur
5 - 6/16/18 Millcreek Ridge CF>Aire Saddle Bushwhack hell
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.
