The Morning After - Back Door Approach to Sunset Peak

  • August 18, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Gardiner Family Cabin

This will be the morning after hike - after the cabin concert (which is a highly recommended event).  We will meet at the Gardiner Family Cabin at 10:00 AM (for those that want to car pool up the canyon, meet at the Park & Ride at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon at 9:15AM so that you can depart by 9:30AM).  We will hike to the top of the Crest Lift at Brighton and then hike along the ridge to Sunset Peak, coming at it from the east side.  We will come down via the normal route that passes by Lake Catherine, Lake Martha and Lake Mary.  There is a little bit of scrambling on this hike, but nothing too technical.  This will be a moderate to strenuous hike with a total distance of about 5-6 miles and 2,500-3,000 vertical climb.  Bring plenty of water and light snacks.

After the hike, we can socialize at the cabin......so BYOB and something to share.

    Will you be updating if canceling due to weather? I'm coming from Park City for the hike. I showed up for a hike that no one else showed for, to go up LIttle Cottonwood Canyon, previously. Thanks for letting me know! Fern

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
