I rent MSR Snowshoes ($10/rental/outing) 20 pair available for rent

This outing is part of a series of hikes offered weekly throughout the year.

We warmly welcome new hikers. When you attend you are joining a FREE, consistent, friendly, seasoned hiking group with a variety of hiking abilities. If you are concerned about how well you'll fit in, please text me in advance and let me know if you want the easier, slower option so I can pair you with similar hikers.

New hikers join us nearly every week.

I'm eager to help you have a great time, your first time hiking with us. Text me if you are new, 801-278-5313 so either I or one of my assistants can help you make a smooth transition into our group.  

We rarely cancel an outing unless weather conditions prevent us from getting to our meeting place.

If you are new, consider attending any of my other outings to get better acquainted with our group.  I'm eager to get to know you better as well! 

Because these outings occur so frequently, detailed information is not included however all of our hikes are beautiful, safe and have options for both easy and moderate hikers. You don't need to go the full 2 - 3 hours. If you prefer one hour for example, let me know at the meeting place and we can help you. Someone else may need a shorter hike as well. Our regular turn around time is approx. 10:30 AM.

Depending on how fast you hike and the elevation gain, some hikers may travel only 2 miles O up to 8 miles in just one outing. 

Our main priority year round is SAFETY!
