Reynolds Peak via Butler's Fork and Dog Lake
Parked at MIll D Trail head. Jogged down to Butlers. Did a clock-wise look and bagged 3 peaks. Saw a mother bear and 3 cubs below Reynolds.
Started from Butler Fork around 7:30 p.m. Got up to Circle All in under an hour. Sun was setting as we traversed the Desolation Trail over to Reynolds. Bushwhacked up then followed the trail down. Sunset was gorgeous. On the way down a mother moose and her calf gave us a startle in the dark. Great little hike! Got back to the car around eleven.
Got to the summit without snowshoes, sunny and some good views out of Big Cottonwood. I then glissaded down most of the way to Dog Lake. It was a blast!
Snowshoed w/ a friend from Mill D/Dog Lake. We had planned on doing Gobbler's Knob from Butler's but parking was crazy. We decided to check out this trail instead. Great little winter hike. Tons of people. Lots of backcountry skiers.
I took our two oldest kids (son 11, daughter 8) backpacking to Dog Lake and we did Reynolds Peak in the morning. It was my daughters first backpacking trip. We all enjoyed the hike, though the kids thought the trail got a little steep at times.
... might as well take in the view and get a little more elevation in. Winter usually enjoys clear trails to the summit, too.

Alone, I climbed Reynolds Peak from Dog Lake and Big Cottonwood Canyon. I hadn't climbed the peak since May of 1996.
I have climbed this mountain many times (especially in the 1980's and 1990's), dating back to when I was a child.
Along with Little Water in a white-out.
Nice walk with the dogs.
My lovely wife and I took some first-timers up to Dog Lake, and thanks to Kadee I had directions to Reynolds, so I dragged the group to the peak. We had some awesome views, pretty flowers, and moderate temperatures. A great hike!
It was a little difficult to find the trail from Dog Lake.
Nice moderate hike. The body sure needs time to adjust to hiking after being out for so long. Whew!
Along with Little Water Peak from Mill D North.
Skied the north side as part of an excellent Wasatch tour.
Great snow, rode the north face and east bowl. Highly recommended!
We camped the night before at Lake Desolation. Headed up to Desolation Peak first thing in the morning, hiked a good chunk of the Part City ridge, and then wrapped up our hike by heading over to Dog Lake and tagging Reynolds Peak.
Found some good snow in the bowl a week after the last storm. Great quick ski tour from BCC.
Splitboarded to the top! It was awesome! Rode a completely untouched line down the North face. Great day. My buddy flew his speed wing down.
Great little summit. Definitely less traveled.
March 17, 2012, Snowshoed up Mill D to Dog Lake then to the peak.
March 10, 2012 Skinned up Butlers Fork, it took about 2 hours to reach the peak. Skied a couple of north facing laps. Awesome 360 degree views.
