Scott Hill up Guardsman Pass

Another MOMSTRONG hike in the books, and one to welcome the fall with a BANG! This is a special trail I came across up Guardsman Pass (which is 13.7 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon). The trailhead is not marked, but starts 1.9 miles up Guardsman Pass and takes you up to a variety of trails that overlook each canyon: Little, Big, Park City, and Deer Valley. This trail up to Scott Hill is at the top of a hill that bikers call "Puke Hill" as part of the Wasatch Crest trail. The views are STUNNING. My advice: go the last weeks of September when the leaves are at their peak colors. You will not regret it! I went twice in a week, and loved it both times.

This trail will take you about 30 minutes up and 30 minutes back down.

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate
