Covering 75 day hikes within two hours of Salt Lake City - this guide has enough hikes to keep most hikers busy for years, if not a lifetime. Researching the project, Mike hiked and reviewed 3-5 hikes a week for 3 months straight during the summer of 2012. From the steep faced mountains of the Wasatch, to gentle relaxing walks in the high Uinta's, to the unique mountains of the western desert, there's so many great outings near Salt Lake.
