Distance: Approximately 2 miles
Elevation Gain: Not that much. We need an altimeter.
Time: About an hour and a half
General Impression: Beautiful! This was easy and nice for a short afternoon hike.
This weekend we decided at about 10:00AM on Saturday morning that we were going camping for the night. We didn't actually arrive at Wasatch Mountain State Park until probably around 2:00PM or something like that, and after setting up our tent and everything, we didn't have all that much time left before it would start getting dark. We decided to do a quick hike while we still had the time. Right across from the visitor's center are a few well-marked trails that we walked along for about an hour and a half. We started on what they call the Visitor's Loop and then took a small detour around the Spring Pond loop.
It was lovely. The colors have started to turn and every now and then we were greeted with a splash of red or yellow. We walked along a well-maintained but narrow dirt/mud path with tall grasses tickling our legs. And of course, we were very impressed with the mountain views.
