Although its origins were in silver mining, the town of Alta near the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon boasts a more abundant natural resource today, with over 120 species of wildflowers blooming in the Albion Basin during the short summer season. For wildflower enthusiasts and nature lovers, the Albion Meadows Trail is a must-do summer hike. Vibrant colors fill the gentle meadows in summer, making for one of the most memorable easy hikes in the area.
