day hike - little black mountain from terrace hills th - June 15, 2022

We'll start at the Terrace Hills TH and head up the same trail used for Avenues Twin Peaks. At the junction with the Tomahawk trail, we'll stay right on the Twin Peaks trail and continue northeast up a hill of dry grass and grasshoppers. You will wander up and back down several hills with great canyon views. We'll go up and down several hills until the last half mile which is described as "a brutal 800 feet in just more than half a mile." At the top of this climb, we'll reach the top ridge of Little Black Hill, with spectacular views of Salt Lake, Davis, Tooele and Weber counties. Expect class 2/3 scrambling to reach the summit. Note, this hike is exploratory for the organizer, but at least one other confirmed hiker has done this trail before and will help keep us on the right trail.
