hike - mill b north, big cottonwood canyon

This hike is a display of the biodiversity in the Wasatch. It starts on a dry aspect at the S curve where scrub oak and sagebrush dominate. The trail travels through several mountain forest zones and riparian areas. There are great view views of Mineral Fork, Mill B South, Broads Fork, and the BCC-LCC ridge line. The RT distance and elevation gain is for travel to the Desolation trail junction. During late May, it is probable that we will encounter snow and mud on the upper part of the trip. There will be some steep rocky sections, but the trail is generally easy to follow. After the hike, we can travel up to the WMC party at the WMCF lodge. We will be HUNGRY ! Lets plan for a 0845 am meeting time and a 0900 am departure to the trailhead.
