day hike: box elder peak (postponed to 5/30/10)

The hike to 11,100 ft. Box Elder Peak (9.5 miles, 4,350 elevation gain) will start from the Granite Flat Campground in the North Fork of American Fork Canyon. Once on the prominent north ridge, the summit approach will be on snow. Therefore an ice axe and self arrest skills are required for safety. Meet between 6:45 and 7:00 am in the large parking lot on the Northeast corner of the intersection at 700 East and 7200 South in the Salt Lake Valley (diagonally across from the Maverick Store). One hour drive to trailhead. Estimated time on trail: 7 hours. I may be out-of-town from May 14-21, so leave a message to express interest or if you have questions, and I will reply on May 22.
