Grandeur Peak

This gallery contains images of the Grandeur Peak Trail in Utah's Wasatch Mountains. The later section of the gallery includes images of Mount Grandeur from different angles in the Salt Lake Valley.

The Grandeur Peak Trail starts at the Church Fork Picnic area. There is a one way road that winds through the picnic area. This road is often prone to traffic jams. If you are hiking for exercise, you might do best to use the limited parking on Mill Creek road rather than driving through the crowded picnic area.

The Grandeur Peak trail starts at the top of the Church Fork Picnic area. The Grandeur Peak Trail connects with the Pipeline Trail a hundred yards or so above the parking lot. The trail follows branches of Church Fork Creek for the first mile then climbs the ridge between Mill Creek and Parleys Canyon. When you reach the top of the ridge, there is an clearing where you can look into Parley's Canyon and a small trail heading East. This trail leads to the top of Church Fork Peak (another popular hike saved for another day).

The main trail heads west, along the ridge, to the top of Grandeur Peak. The round trip is 6.25 miles. The trail gains 3060 feet to reach the peak which is a reported 8299 feet above sea level. This trail provides spectacular views of the Wasatch Mountains and
