Overview

The Mount Aire trail starts at the Elbow Fork Trailhead, around 5 and a half miles from the Forest Service toll booth at the entrance to Millcreek canyon. The peak of Mount Aire stands just about of 8,600 feet, and overlooks Parley’s Canyon to the North, Millcreek Canyon to the south, Mount Olympus Wilderness, and beyond.

The hike itself is a steep, 3.8 round trip hike, with around 2,000 of elevation gain. Bring hiking shoes / boots with good traction, and plenty of water. The hike is well trafficked, so expect to see a few people heading each way. There is a place where this trail comes to a split with the Mount Aire trail on the left, and Lamb’s Canyon trail to the right.

Getting Started

Parking is available on both side of the road. Restrooms are also available at the trailhead. The trailhead is well marked, and the trail is visible throughout the hike.

Taking Children

If your kids are up for a steep hike, the exercise and exposure to nature on the Mount Aire trail is definitely worth taking them on.
