This is a great hiking trail, also has some climbs for rock climbers. It is an uphill hike in a western facing canyon in the foothills of the mountains. It is pretty shady in the winters, and the hill down into the canyon can be icy & is usually snow covered. There is also a ridge hike from here, if you cross the water once you are in the canyon and then head up (east), which is in the sunshine. It's a beautiful canyon, I go all year, but have no photos of the wintertime. It is a more popular canyon, and parking on the weekends can be tricky. Rattlesnakes do live here, and are out in the warmer months, as early as April.

Deaf Smith is much less traveled, so it is more overgrown. It is also in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, and very close to Ferguson Trailhead. The path forks in the beginning, one to the north (cross over the water), and one to the south, both heading up and east. This is a big canyon with lots to explore. I go here also all year also, when I want a longer hike that is more isolated. Rattlesnakes also live here in warmer weather. This canyon gets more sun than Ferguson. We have camped up here, hiked up with the baby & pups.

There is a gate just to the south of this church that leads to a very steep, very sunny hike. It's great for a quick cardio workout & has great views at the top. I hike here very often in the winter, especially an hour before sunset. This hike is in between Ferguson & Deaf Smith Canyons. This is also a good place to bring a sled if you want to take some shorter rides. Very steep hills.

It's a great place to eat a quick, casual meal at the end of a ski day or when you don't feel like cooking. This is where we go when we want a lively scene, beer and a quick meal. The food is better than normal bar food, lots of options for every palette.

I love the zoo, and they have events all year. This is great place for kids. It's not too big, which can be overwhelming. It also has a place for little ones to play, a train ride to take, and kids can feed the giraffes if they go at the right time. More photos to come.
