Sunset hike to Jack's Mailbox peak - Dog Friendly!
*** Please be aware of weather conditions and be prepared for conditions ***Please bring a headlamp!
We will leave at 7:40pm.
I LOVE this trail for several reasons: it's very similar the the Living Room, but with very few people, it's a great, short workout/hike, the views of the valley are awesome, it's close to town, AND they allow dogs off leash! Now that's my kind of hike...
We will sit at the peak to watch the sunset. Feel free to bring drinks and a blanket to sit on at the top.
This trail is 3.2 miles round trip and the elevation gain is a little over 1200 feet. It's strenuous because of the elevation gain. We will pace ourselves comfortably. This will be a great hike, with great views of the city! The trail starts from a neighborhood on the east side of Salt Lake.
Difficulty: 3 out of 5
