Great scenery, drive & hikes
Oct 2021
My wife and I hiked for several hours a few days ago with snow falling & several inches of snow on the ground. We enjoyed our short hike. The winter scenery was amazing. Great to see fall colors, mountains, streams, rivers, & trees.

Great fall drive!
Oct 2021
What a beautiful drive up the Wasatch mountains! The trees were a brilliant yellow and the other plant life were green and orange, making for a patchwork of color. We continued onto Park City, which was a scary ride in the early morning...very high elevation with lots of low hanging clouds made for a white knuckle trip down the mountains!

No having fun allowed
May 2021
We started to drive in. We wanted to pull over to have a meal and then continue driving through, but every single pull out required a fee, and the signage made a person believe they rather you just leave. No swimming, no dogs, picnic areas with $129 price tags. All we wanted to do was have lunch. Federal Govt park rules were a nuisance for our road trip. I bet it was beautiful.

Numerous Recreational Opportunities in Beautiful Setting!
May 2021 • Family
The beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon affords children of all ages the opportunity for numerous recreational opportunities. The drive alone is a visual treat. A meandering creek accompanies the road, with many turnouts to view, and photograph, the natural beauty. For the adventurer hiking, rock climbing, camping, and skiing are all available. The drive leads to Silver Lake and Brighton Ski Resort. In summer and fall there are hikes that lead to picturesque Lake Mary, Lake Catherine, Clayton Peak, and many more. Big Cottonwood Canyon is absolutely stunning, and provides outdoor activities for all ages!

Great drive

Such an incredible drive- you will get lots of pictures just dricing through. We stopped at Donut Falls trailhead and walked for a bit just taking photos and watching little kids learning how to ski down the tiny hills. Good place to make snowmen too!
