    The trail was rather muddy, icy, and slushy due to the epic snow fall we have had this year, this past week's rain, and the warmer sun that cropped up over the past few days. Despite that, we got up fine to the top in 2 hours and 30 minutes with microspikes. The lower elevation was green and lovely while the upper trail still had a lot of snow. This trail is really enjoyable. It is super green in the spring and rather shady for most of it in the summer and fall. If you want a quick yet steep trail to the top for an excellent view of Salt Lake City, this is your hike. It is a traditional trail with a simple single track dirt trail from the bottom to the top. The end has some awesome rocks that outcrop over the valley that any famous instagramers will love (sorry instagram husbands, you're going to be taking a lot of pictures).

    Short but a vigorous climb. The views at the top are great. I found it rather busy, even on a winter weekday. The trail was well packed snow all the way up.

    It’s okay if you’re a wuss and you like this sort of thing.

    First snowshoeing trip of the 2018-2019 season! This is my first time up the Desolation Trail and I found it to be a great trail for a snowshoer that's looking for a trail that's straightforward to follow but also has some challenging terrain. Snow is a bit sparse at the lower elevations but by the time the Thayne Canyon trail branches off it's plenty deep. There's 3+ feet in the upper stretches.
