LITTLE COTTONWOOD TRAIL ~ HIKE 2


We left our vehicle at the UTA Little Cottonwood Park and Ride and drove up the canyon to the big bridge trailhead
You'll drive by the second road gate and look for cars parked on the south side of the road. 
This is not the trail that walks over a huge pipe.  You'll have to drive further up the canyon.
You'll find cars parked on the side of the road.
The trail enters around a fence and drops down to the bridge.
We hiked up to the top where you'll see the historic building on the other side of the creek.  
Then we went all the way down the Little Cottonwood trail and crossed the road to the UTA lot.  
We shuttled back to pick up the vehicle at the road.


HIKE TIME: 2 hours
MILEAGE: 3 1/3 miles
