West Slopes  Sucess!

Took me about 130 minutes to reach the top on a hot August day via the West Slopes. Took about 100 minutes to get down - it pounds the knees on the way down wished I brought trekking poles.

Go To for Locals  Sucess!

Nice to have this close for locals; easy access, nice work out, proper summit at the top. Go up the West, down to Church Fork; back up Church Fork and down the West for the Grandeur Double.

From Church Fork  Sucess!

Easy walk-up, but a little too far for a before-work hike.

Just beat the rain.  Sucess!

We had grand plans for our first trip to SLC but the weather sucked and limited us to shorter lower routes like this. We still had fun and this quick trip left us in the clouds with no view but we got out. It was Memorial weekend so even with the bad weather the trail was BUSY. Rain started right as we got back to the car.

Grandeur Peak  Sucess!

Eventually would like to do Burch Hollow -> Church Fork ridge -> Grandeur->Church Fork trail->Pipeline trail loop.

Finally!  Sucess!

After living in Utah and looking at this peak for 9 months, I finally grabbed some friends and summited! My legs were tired after 2 full days of activity previous to this mountain, but was up and down in about 3 hours.

For a nice meander   Sucess!

Did this from Churchfork. The parking and picnic grounds were closed. A group of three of us headed up to the summit. It was a nice gradual trail to the top. Nothing terrible about this hike my friends! Also the views were rather gorgeous. I cuddled with a strange dog and saw lots of kids on spring break. Thanks Grandeur!

Cute up the Church Fork  Sucess!

This one is short and sweet. It is a great after work jaunt through the woods. I went up in the afternoon and it was nice and shady most of the way up.

Great views all around, would highly recommend. The trail isn't too steep either and allows for a pretty good trail run if that is your thing.

fun winter hike  Sucess!

Slick in the picnic area, but fun the rest of the way.

Ran up in the Snow  Sucess!

2/4/17 Suffered up the West Face in snow and mud slop in an hour ten, and ran down to Church Fork.

2/28/15 Ran up from Church Fork with my awesome wife. It was snowy the entire way and bitter cold and windy on the summit. We had a great time though!
Headed straight over to Wire to do that quickly to get in shape for Cactus to Clouds route of Mt. San Jacinto!

Nice Workout  Sucess!

Nice super steep hike, it's a great workout. I did it round trip in 2 hrs.

Nice training hike close to SLC  Sucess!

Hiked up Grandeur a number of times in all seasons ... it is a good hike close to SLC to train for higher peaks. Great for a short weekend hike when you don't have the time to spend a full day to bag a peak. Great for a family hike with young kids.

Blue skies up...  Sucess!

Second Mountain  Sucess!

Climbed from the West Side route. Steep hike all the way but good views from the top!

Hot summer day  Sucess!

My friend Kiley couldn't go until 10:30 in the morning. So we got a hot start, and we got a good sweat on during the hike. She recently moved here from Panama, so the altitude was just enough the get her lungs working. And both our dogs were excited to get back down to water. But great views of the SL valley and especially Mount Olympus from there. Was another great outing.

Went up with my 9 yr old and 5 yr old boys. Great views on top.

Via Church Fork  Sucess!

Looking forward to trying the western approach in the fall or next spring.

Snakes  Sucess!

Last year I went up the west ridge trail very early and saw 3 rattlesnakes on the way. Stayed nice and cool though.
