Hiking Alexander Basin / Gobblers Knob

Hiking Alexander Basin / Gobblers Knob

In the book Hiking the Wasatch; it states "One of the steepest trails in the Wasatch", and it's not lying. From the trail head, the trail goes straight up at a really steep grade to the first switchback. We required a 5 minute rest after the first hill because we were torn up by the sheer angle.

Big & Little Water Trails - Mill Creek Canyon

Big & Little Water Trails - Mill Creek Canyon

These two trails are great for a relaxing hike to get the blood flowing, heart rate elevated, and there is allot of shade to keep you out of the sun. This trail is used by a lot of Mountain Bikers, Horses, and Dog Owners. It is closed to Mountain bikes on odd numbered days. We began this hike on the Upper Big Water Trail. It made its way around the hills of Upper Mill creek through Aspen groves, Pine trees, and flora everywhere. Read More!

Grandeur Peak Hiking Trail - Mill Creek Canyon

Grandeur Peak Hiking Trail - Mill Creek Canyon

I have always wanted to climb this mountain. I have driven past it for years, as it sits directly north of Mt. Olympus. It almost has a knob-like appearance, with a spine of granite splitting outwards on the western slope. Grandeur Peak sits at the head of the Parleys canyon and the Mill Creek canyon ridge line.

Mt Aire Hiking Trail - Mill Creek Canyon

Mt Aire Hiking Trail - Mill Creek Canyon

Mt. Aire is located up Mill Creek Canyon. As we started off it was a sweltering summer day in the valley, and so our intentions were to get up out of the heat, and into cool Mill Creek Canyon. The Forest Service charges a fee to access the canyon which you pay as you exit. I think this fee is well worth it as they keep these trails scrawl free unlike the rest of the trails in the Wasatch which can be quite rugged. Read More!
