The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.Mount Aire is a high point on the ridge line between Parleys and Millcreek Canyons. Because the Millcreek Canyon Road is closed to motor vehicles above the Maple Grove gate until July 1, we will start at the Burch Hollow trailhead, hike on the Pipeline trail to the Mount Aire trailhead. The hike will travel travel through forest that change from maple/scub oak to conifer/aspen then to scub oak /sagebrush. The views of the Wasastch are great. The trail is generally well defined but has some steep sections. At that time of the year, most of the snow should be gone, but the trail could be muddy just below Mount Aire pass. The route distance is for round trip. Energetic dogs and teenagers that are accompanied by a responsible adult are welcome. The plan is depart from the meeting place at 9:00 am.
