strange looking tripod
by charlieaz

Likely In-Season!
From the gate start hiking up the road. Along the way are other smaller roads that take you off from the route you want. Stay on the main road, past a second road that makes a sharp switchback and follow it as it descends and gradually ascends again. As you near the benchmark the road becomes much steeper.


At the top is a strange looking tripod used for triangulation, I’m told.

This hike offers great views of both Salt Lake City and Utah Valley.
