day hike to grandview peak from affleck park - October 25, 2014

This is a repeat of the Grandview Peak hike from July 26, but in cooler weather, fall colors, and starting a little earlier. 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 trailhead on Rt 65 just south of 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 west to meet the ridgeline for Grandview Peak. There is some easy scrambling the last half-mile to Grandview Peak. Expect a long day (about 9 to 10 hours). MSD- due to the length. Bring plenty of water and food.
