Description

The Mount Aire Trail is a short but steep climb to a peak that offers good views of Parley's Canyon. The route begins by following Elbow Fork for a short distance before ascending straight up the drainage. Eventually, switchbacks provide a little relief from the relentless climb, but not nearly enough. Upon cresting the top of the peak, enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding area. Pro Tip: Summit Mount Aire in the autumn to see your surroundings erupt in fiery fall color.

This is a beautiful trail. Dogs are allowed in Millcreek Canyon. On even numbered days dogs must remain on-leash. On odd numbered days, dogs are allowed off-leash. Please remember to pick up your pet's waste and pack it out with you. If you see waste, don't be afraid to pick it up, even if it wasn't left there by your pet. I like to think of it as picking up Karma poop. Sometimes I miss it when my pets go, so if I pick up yours when you miss it, I'm paying it forward to someone else picks it up when I miss it. And in return we get to keep a clean and beautiful outdoor space that doesn't smell like a sewer :) Nov 22, 2017
