A Moderate Hike in the Alta Ski Resort
- Length: 2.1 miles round trip (Pass)
- Elevation Gain: 790 ft
- Highest Elevation: 10,220 ft (Pass)
10,648 ft. (Peak)
- Trailhead: Top of the Sunnyside Lift at Alta Ski Resort
The trail has some nice easy level spots and some spots that are just the opposite. It all evens out to be a nice moderate trail with some astounding views.
Park in the area at the top of the Sunnyside lift, and cross the road to the trailhead. It is flat for a little while and then rises up the mountain face.
After about a mile, you reach the pass, where you can gaze down at Lake Catherine, or hike down to it. Or, take the right fork and head up to Sunset Peak for 360 degree views of the area.
