  1. Hi there,

    I would sure appreciate your thoughts, knowledge and expertise. I will in SLC in mid January (up from FL) and will have two days to play. I would like to try to see as many of your beautiful waterfalls and scenic vistas as I can. Short (1hr each way probably) max hikes so I can see as much as I can. The big question I have is what trails are open/accessible to a rental car/SUV and I guess which trails would be open to hiking and last would I need showshoes or spikes on hiking boots (or would they slow me down too much since I have never used them). I’m an experienced hiker and hike in Western NC twice a year.

    What waterfalls or really scenic vista’s would you suggest I visit and/or whom would you suggest I contact for more information? Thank you!!!

    • This is a tricky question! When I visited in early May, some of the trails were still closed, and there were some snow flurries. Hidden Falls is a short hike, and you should probably be able to get to the parking area? I think the pass further up closes in winter, though I’ve read that can be popular for snowshoers. Of the others I visited, many were right near the city, so the parking areas were at lower elevations. Rocky Mouth Falls was the shortest. Some of the others like Battle Creek Falls and Waterfall Canyon Falls could take about an hour or so in ideal conditions. Just by driving to each one, it would be easy to gauge the conditions. If Waterfall Canyon Falls seems to be traverse, that’s by far the best for amazing views. You’ll be able to see Ogden and the Great Salt Lake from there. I found a number of other options in the area using the AllTrails App. (The only waterfall to avoid is Adams Canyon Falls…biggest disappointment of the bunch, and in winter I’m guessing not that fun.). If you need any other info, let me know and I’ll send it your way.
