session mountain hike above bountiful - September 11, 2016

Cooler temps and the start of fall colors make this a good time to hike to the ridge top above Bountiful, UT. This will be a slower paced hike (averaging roughly 1.1mph going up) so gazelles and jackrabbits may want to find another hike. Plan on hiking for about six hours. The hike will start at 9am. The trailhead has restrooms. Bring snacks, three litres of water, and the 10 Essentials. Driving directions: Since 400 North is under construction on I-15 take exit 316 (500 South Bountiful) heading East towards the mountains. Continue east 1.9 miles to 1100 East and then make a right turn onto Lakeview Drive. Lakeview Drive starts heading south but eventually winds its way east and after .9 miles intersects with Bountiful Boulevard. Make a left heading north on Bountiful Boulevard for one block, and the trailhead will be on your right.
