Surprise—a glacial lake in Little Cottonwood Canyon that can be reached along a gently ascending trail. The open trail leads to wonderful canyon views, a glacial cirque dotted with alpine vegetation, and one of the prettiest lakes in Utah.

Easy trail. The whole family can do. Lots of visitors so parking is a bit of problem. But the views a beautiful! This lake is a beautiful blue green color, and is full of salamanders. Interesting, I never new salamanders lived in the mountains.
