Geocache Description:


This has to be one of my new favorite areas to be. I spent half of the day up here and the time just flew by. I wasn't planning on placing the cache here but the views are so awesome that I had too.

I hiked up to Willow Lake, then went around to the "long way" geocache. From there the trail forks and I took the fork up to Dry Lake. The trail to the lake is steep but I don't think much worse than the beginning of the trailhead. From Dry Lake I basically took game trails back and forth until I reached the top. You can go straight up the ridge or you can stay in the valley up til it ends and traverse across some of the steep stuff and then up (its a little easier). Its about 1500 feet total elevation gain from the paved road.

From the top you can see Willow Lake below, you can see Brighton Ski Resort and Solitude Ski Resort. You can see over to some peaks in Little Cottonwood Canyon and all the way down Big Cottonwood Canyon. The leaves are awesome this time of year. I hope you enjoy the hike as much as I did. I also saw a moose, 17 deer, and a snake during the hike so there are lots to see.
