Trip Report: Snowshoe or microspike hike from North Canyon to Mueller Park
Snowshoe or microspike hike from North Canyon to Mueller Park
By Bart Michaelson
| This was an long easy hike between two trailheads (North Canyon and Mueller Park). It was 10.5 miles long with only 1700 feet of elevation gain. The day started out cloudy but cleared up by the time we were about 2 miles into the hike. The views of the Great Salt Lake, Antelope Island and beyond were amazing because there was no smog. The color of the Great Salt Lake was amazing. My phone camera didn't do it justice. There was an occasional breeze that was cold but long as we were off the ridge it was a pretty calm day, very enjoyable. The trail from Rudy's Flat to Elephant rock was a little more snow packed than expected but we still made good progress between the two sites. This was a shuttle hike, but could be done as a complete loop if you want to walk on a sidewalk between the two trailheads for about 1.5 to 2 miles.
