    It was the worst of times and the best of time. The first few miles of this hike are ugly and hot as you trudge up horseshit-peppered dirt road without shade. You graduate onto a single-track through endless scrub oak but when finally emerge, you’re in some of the most beautiful granite and pine landscapes in Utah...and usually all to yourself. The first time I did this hike I saw one other person. Yesterday I saw three. Very dramatic area with lots of peak add-on options, including Box Elder, Bighorn, South Thunder, and Lone Peak itself. Bring lots of water and a good hat.

    This hike has it all. The approach trail is moderate but a bit rocky in places. above the upper Red pine lake it gets steep with loose rock. You have to negotiate a knife edge ridge scramble with a little exposure and then a crazy steep hike to the summit on loose rock. Be careful it is easy to take a header on the way down.

    With more than 5000 ft of elevation gain this is a difficult loop hike. I recommend a counterclockwise direction.

    Stellar ridge scramble, N ridge of red baldy is pretty shwacky. Came out on strava as 12.6 miles. Elevation was spot on.

    Short but challenging hike from the Northeast corner of Alpine. The falls are gorgeous especially in Spring and Fall. If hiking when snow packed bring micro spikes. Trails is consistently steep with loose and embedded rock. Good hike for kids.

    Hiked this trail 6-20-19. There is still a lot of runoff, resulting in several tricky crossings of raging streams, making it too dangerous for small children. Otherwise the trail is in good shape. I turned back at 8300 feet elevation where the deep snow hides the trail. This will be a great hike in late July after the snow melts. Great scenery, lots of shade and beautiful mountain meadows.
