Trip Report: Day Hike Houndstooth

Day Hike Houndstooth
By Evette Raen
HIKE 04/09/2016 MSD

Eleven hikers ventured out on the Houndstooth Hike organized by Alex Arakelian. Mild temperatures and sun peeking through the clouds offered an outstanding spring Saturday for the hike. Prior to the trip Alex, the organizer, regularly hiked and maintained the trail making him an excellent guide for the day. Clear and stunning views at the top of Houndstooth were the hikers' rewards for the steep climb up the trail through a mixture of rocks, vegetation and snow. Near the top the group enjoyed sledding and sliding down snow covered portions of the trail. It was another great day out on the mountain with the Wasatch Mountain Club.
