day hike to grandview peak from affleck park

This is a repeat of the Grandview Peak hike that was snowed out on Memorial Day weekend due to a blizzard. We will hike to infrequently visited Grandview Peak above City Creek Meadows overlooking Davis and Salt Lake County. We will start at the Mormon Pioneer Trail on UT SR 65 near Affleck Park and then follow a trail heading towards Lookout Peak, but take a side trail that meets up with the Great Western Trail at Hardscrabble Pass. From there we'll travel above City Creek Meadows to meet the ridgeline for Grandview Peak. There is some easy scrambling the last half-mile to Grandview Peak and the trail is nice all the way. Expect a long day (at least 10 hours). Bring plenty of water and food.
