day hike: mt. wire (big beacon) - May 25, 2014

This relatively short but steep hike (gains 2180 ft. in just over 1.5 miles) is an excellent hike to get into shape! It affords excellent views of both Emmigration and Red Butte Canyons. The route is up the south ridge (from Hogle Zoo) and while it is exposed to the sun all the way is generally dry. Bring plenty of water!
