day hike: mt. olympus from wasatch boulevard

This old favorite seldom disappoints. A good early season workout, expect to move steadily up the steep, rocky route with occasional short breaks. Round trip should take no more than 6 hours for fit hikers. Micro-spikes can be helpful, if ice and/or packed snow are on the route. Trekking poles are good, especially for the steep descent. Bring snacks, plenty of water (at least 3 liters), rain gear, layers of clothing, sunscreen. If the route is wet or icy, the route can be slippery, so we may need to turn around short of the summit or hike something else.
