Trail Overview

For those who might want to get out for a nice day hike, this road leads to the West Canyon Trailhead and has some beautiful views. Most of the year, it's a really easy road to drive, but snow and snowdrifts can make the road very difficult to travel in the wintertime. It does climb almost 2000' in elevation in its short drive, making the views of the Tooele Valley and the opposing Oqquirrh Mountain range a beautiful site to see no matter what time of year.
