day hike: south willow lake

This nifty little lake is snuggled up against a wall in the Stansbury Mountains southwest of Grantsville. The trail to this snowfield-fed jewel provides a wonderful introduction to the Stansburys and offers magnificent vistas of the Wasatch Front, the Great Salt Lake and the Oquirrh Mountains. Plan on a hike of a little over 3 miles each way, 2182 feet of elevation gain, and a stop for lunch at South Willow Lake before returning. The Stansbury's are more arid than the Wasatch so a minimum of two liters of water is recommended for this event along with normal 10E's. Meet Elliott (801-969-2846) in the west-side parking lot north of the taco stand of backcountry.com, located on 3200 West and Parkway Boulevard (2670 South), to carpool or caravan at 8:00am.
