hike - mount wire from the trailhead across from the zoo

Mount Wire is the distinctive high point in the foothills east of the University of Utah- Research Park. I was planning that we travel up the South route. Please meet at the Bonneville Shoreline trailhead that is on Sunnyside and across the street from the Hogle Zoo. If the conditions permit, we may descend via the north facing slope and down Georges Hollow. The South route travels on a well defined path that is steep. Georges Hollow is less steep but has some erosion issues. Well mannered energetic dogs and teenagers accompanied by their owners and parents/guardians are welcome. The trail has no water except if there is lingering snow (do not count on that). The trip offers great views of the Wasatch mountains and foothills. We may see some flowers and cacti. The 3.7 miles distance is for the south route round trip. If we do the south route - Georges Hollow loop, I estimate 5-6 miles.
