day hike - mt wire and red butte from emigration trailhead - May 10, 2023

We'll start at the Emigration Trailhead and head counterclockwise to Mt Wire and then over to Red Butte. This is a fairly steep uphill, so it will be a good workout. Hiking poles are recommended. From Red Butte, we'll continue the loop to the Living Room and will stop there for a snack or early lunch. Afterwards, we'll return to the cars via the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. This loop will be exploratory for the organizer. Mileage and elevation gain are approximate. Recent trail conditions are reported as dry with some patchy snow towards the peaks.
