Hike Ferguson Canyon to SLC Overlook

Ferguson Canyon is a great hike close to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.  The length is 3.4 miles round trip and elevation gain of 1,650 feet.  This hike has a couple of steep areas and is a great workout!

Bring a headlamp, microspikes or Yaktrax (there will be snow pack for the last 1/3 of the hike), water, a snack, and comfortable hiking shoes.  Carpool if you can because parking is limited.  Those that know where I live, arrive at 5:45pm and we'll walk up to the trailhead.

Directions: Turn east off Wasatch Drive to Prospector Drive (7535 South).
Take an immediate right and head south. At Timberline Drive (7780 South),
take a left and park along the right side of the road. A dirt road leads to
the trailhead.



We will split into 2 groups.  See you on the mountain!

    THANK YOU ADAM!! I truly appreciate you taking over this hike. Food poisoning is not fun and knowing you were able to take over made it less painful.

    Is it okay to bring children?

    April 6, 2014

    • Kim

      Yes, kids are welcome. There are a couple of steeps sections, therefore I recommend kids over the age of 12.
