Big Mountain to Grandview  Sucess!

Started at Big Mountain Pass and ended at Affleck Park. Cold, windy, stormy day. Grandview was in the clouds when we ascended but they blew away by the time we decided to descend. Great hidden gem! Little snow for how late in the season we hiked it.

Nice (though hot!) from Big Mtn  Sucess!

Biked GWT from Big Mtn Pass to trail junction above City Creek Meadows, then hiked to summit. Total mileage around 9 mi each way, so 6 on bike, 6 on foot, then 6 on bike. Been procrastinating doing this one for years, and- somewhat to my surprise- really enjoyed it. Easy terrain, trail pretty much the whole way, never difficult, off-the-charts wildflowers. Less than 5% of the route is shaded, so it's a warm outing in June. This one would be real nice in late September/early October.

Via Big Mountain Pass  Sucess!

One heck of an adventure. Rode our mountain bikes just pass Swallow Rocks, then stashed them in the trees and hiked the rest of the way to the summit. What a grand view! 17.8 miles RT, 4663' elevation gain.

At long last - in the bag  Sucess!

From Big Mtn pass w/ Brent. Tagged Big Mtn, Big Mtn South and several other sub-peaks en route to Grandview. After admiring this peak from many other peaks I finally bit the bullet and made the (successful) attempt. Lotsa wind today. Und wo war meine Lieblingspartnerin? Na ja, was gibt's Neues: IVD!

From Big Mountain Pass along with Big Mountain South, Big Mountain, and Swallow Rocks. Great hike along the ridge, all said and done the hike was 20.2 miles, 5,699 vertical feet, and 7 hours 15 minutes.

Long way  Sucess!

From Big Mountain Pass. Also did P9158. The Great Western Trail was great, but after turning off of that the trail was hard to follow and then seemed to peter out completely, but maybe without the snow it would have been more apparent. Cloudy and windy. About 19.2 miles total.

Bicycle to Rotary Park Gate, Endless 'Shwhack After  Sucess!

Cycled to the top of Rotary Park and locked up on the gate. After City Creek Meadows, the bushwhacking began in earnest. Instead of taking the easier route towards the Sessions, I took a gully basically at random and suffered through the gambel and scrub oak nightmare until I made the summit.

While I was pleased with the novel approach (bicycle + Trail run > Hike), my blood-sugar levels took a dip on account of not packing enough food, and I marched back through the soggy meadows feeling pretty desolate and tired.

Honestly, this mountain would make more sense as a snowshoe ascent (with stable snow and low avalanche risk, obviously).

Grandview  Sucess!

We did this as a traverse starting from Big Mountain Pass. We hiked to Big Mountain, Swallow Rocks, Grandview Peak, and the Sessions Mountains Ridge Peaks. Then we hiked down to Mueller Park. This was a rewarding hike done in great weather.

Holy Crap!  Sucess!

Long day from Big Mountain Pass; 18 miles total. Good thing I was with good friends; Sper's Dean and Aldocious. Great day!Great views from the summit.

Long day  Sucess!

From Big Mountain Pass, three of us, SP'ers Imontop, Aldocious, and myself did 18 miles roundtrip on a beautiful fall day. Elevation gain according to my GPS was 4800+ feet for the roundtrip. The last entry in the summit register was Sep 9th. And, I should mention, the views from the summit were indeed grand. Geocache addicts can also find a 2002 geocache hidden in the area.

Tougher than expected  Sucess!

Started from Rotary Park in City Creek Canyon. The snow made it really difficult along the ridge from Burro Peak to Grandview. Very narrow in places with plenty of moats in the rocks. Carried snow shoes up. Hike ended up being almost 13 miles RT with 5800 feet of elevation change. Many ups and downs. The trail?? to Rudy's Flat is very overgrown in places. Definitely some bushwacking

Route Climbed: Great Western from Big Mountain Pass  Sucess!

Started at Big Mountain pass heading west/north along the Great Western trail. New snow from earlier in the week made my progress a little slower than anticipated. Straight forward route to the summit although I could not find a trail on the final approach. Took about 2 hours 20 mins to reach the peak. Instead of doing an out and back I (foolishly) decided to stick to the north ridge of City Creek all the way to Rudy Flat then connect it to the 4wd double track further down the ridge. I finished by coming down the pipeline trail into City Creek canyon. Route finding was very difficult with the new snow, several bushwhack sections made for slow progress and bloody shins.

Mueler Park/Rudy's Flat

And I thought it would be easy!!!! Made it to Burro Peak, but had to call it a day due to time constraint. I'll be back.

Via Lookout Peak  Sucess!

Came from Affleck park via lookout,but returned on what I believe is part of the Wasatch 100 route that prevents a need to reascend Lookout. This was a great ropute with only minor bushwalking coming down from Lookout. If Grandview is the only goal the a trail albeit faint in places exists the whole way. The turn off is about 20 yards on the right after a giant whole on the ridge that looks like a collapsed mining claim, just before the ascent of Lookout 1st and largest "false" summit.
