Mt. Aire  Sucess!

1/4/2015 Traverse from Grandeur Peak.
5/5/2013 Church Fork Peak: From the Church Fork trail we followed an old faint trail that cut through the brush to the ridge a few hundred yards before Church Fork Peak. From Church Fork Peak we followed the Millcreek ridge to where the Burch Hollow trail intersects it, and then followed that trail back down to the pipeline trail. We followed the pipeline trail back to the Church Fork trailhead making for a nice loop. We measured our success in the fact we kept the bushwhacking to a minimum.
12/23/12 Mt. Aire: We followed the Pipeline trail from Burch Hollow to the Elbow trailhead and then on up to Mt. Aire.

Mt Aire  Sucess!

first time on top of Mt Aire was 20 July 1988; I have photos of horned lizard (not seen so much recently). have yet to get to Church Fork Peak.
6 July 2013: latest of several times on Millvue Peak. Previous times via Lambs Canyon, this time the first from Millcreek (Elbow Fork TH, but had to walk along the road from the locked gate to get there).

Great Early Season Hike  Sucess!

This is a great hike for the beginning of the season. I really enjoyed the hike.

from Church Fork via Grandeur  Sucess!

Ran from Church Fork to Elbow Fork by way of the ridge from Grandeur Peak to Mt Aire, ~11 miles. Used a bicycle shuttle. I've run the next two ridges to the north, and this one scratched up my legs the most; whoever wrote the bushwhacking is not so bad, was probably wearing long pants and boots, not swim trunks and Vibram Five Fingers. Between the bushwhacking delays and the fact that it was my first run in a couple months, I ran out of food, water, and stamina before reaching Mt Aire, but I forced myself up (had to walk) anyway, and it was a beautiful day of pink bigtooth maples and yellow box elders, with some aspens also starting to go off.

Steep little Sucker  Sucess!

Had a strained thigh, so was looking for an easy and flat walk...this wasn't it. Summitted Mt Aire in a less than spectular time, enjoyed the outstanding view, declared victory and limped down the hill.

Maple Grove  Sucess!

Started from Maple Grove because the road was still closed above there. Went up the Elbow Fork trail.

Did the same hike 6/26.

I have called DeWaal many times and he always preaches the same old story. He always tells me of his inspirational walks up City Creek Canyon, his workouts at a gym, dancing at the Murray Arts Center, and swooning at concerts. I got rather bored with this same old story thirty years ago. I wouldn't consider a hike up Mount Aire a dozen times a notable accomplishment in mountaineering. In 1974 I had arranged to meet him in Zermatt to climb the Matterhorn. He never showed up.

Aire and Church Fork  Sucess!

Don't consider Millvue a peak, but Aire and Church Fork are great peaks in their own right. Just East of Church Fork Peak is a grove of trees and thick vegitation that provides lovely shade on a hot day. Nice wildflower area too. Came up from Burch Hollow. Pristine views to the South of Millcreek's mountains and thick evergreen forest. Seperate day up Burch Hollow to do Mount Aire. Extremely faint trail exists on North side of ridge to meet saddle below Mount Aire. Many toads on the way. Descent via Elbow Fork.

Mill Creek and Mt Aire  Sucess!

I've never climbed Church Fork, but I've been to the summits of Mt Aire and Millvue lots of times ski touring in the winter. The views from both peaks are really great.

The Aire Up There  Sucess!

Hiked with Caroline, Dustin, John, and Kathleen. We were going to hike Mount Raymond but were rained out and turned around after a half mile. Once down Big Cottonwood, the weather cleared so we decided to do a quicker Mount Aire run. Short but fun. Encountered a horny toad at the top which was quite friendly. Couldn't find a marker or register though which left me disappointed.

#2 - 7/8/17 33rd bday trail run with Beans

Millvue Peak  Sucess!

Had to do an extra mile to get to Millvue, because the winter gate was still locked. It opens July 1. Went via Elbow Fork.

Elbow Fork  Sucess!

Climbed today via Elbow Fork with my boy. Great day. Only saw one other guy who said he had a Moose encounter near the saddle. We saw tons of Moose tracks and scat, but no animals (thankfully). Very muddy and granular snow up top as to be expected this time of year. Great mountain with great views!

Church fork peak from Mt. Grandeur  Sucess!

Why are these peaks grouped together?

01/08/2011 Traverse from Grandeur to Mt Aire.

02/13/2010 Millcreek ridge traverse from Grandeur west ridge to Mt. Aire saddle. Lots of snow, scary cracks forming on the steep lumps of soft snow. Joe and I looked for an hour or more to find a safe place to top the rocky west ridge of Church Fork peak.

Great Day  Sucess!

Traversed Mount Aire - unnamed peak - Millvue. The bushwhacking was a little tricky in Chacos but a great hike and recommendable to all.

Mount Aire  Sucess!

Elbow Fork route. Did this hike in the evening with my brother in law. Great trail that is shaded the majority of the time. Nice elevation change, with amazing views at the top.

Millcreek Ridge  Sucess!

Traversed East from Grandeur, over Church Fork Peak and up to Mt Aire, then back down Elbow fork and to the shuttle car. A nice long workout.
