The Hike that Flips You the Bird
I started from the Snowbird Visitors Center and proceeded to ascend the hill off the main patio. As soon as you get to Dick Bass Highway, you will go left up a short but steep hill. Once you get to the top, you will see a picnic area, with a volleyball net, barbeque pit, and the trail that goes to the right. It is a little deceiving where it starts, so look around.
The trail starts up a steep set of switch backs to the first ridge top. Once up to the top, the trail goes to the left then curves to the right. This hill is really steep, with a stream running off to the left. Once you are at this point the trail splits into Chips Trail Run, and the Peruvian Gulch Trail. Head up the Peruvian trail, to the next ridge top where you will cross a meadow to the base of the Peruvian Ridge. This leg of the trail starts with small switch backs, then one long switch back to the ridge top. Once up here, you will see the Pfeifferhorn and the Twins right there in a spectacular view. The ridge is really steep, and narrow so watch your step, a fall off this ridge would be a visit to the E.R. for sure. This ridge goes up to the left all the way to Hidden Peak. Once you reach the peak you will see the Tram, and the buildings on Hidden Peak.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
When hiking several trails on a single "hike", log it with a generic name that describes the hike. Then link the trails traveled, check out the example.
