One of the lesser-known big peaks of the Wasatch, Box Elder Peak offers exceptional mountain-wilderness scenery and wildlifeviewing. Most fit hikers can achieve the adventurous off-trail scramble to the summit. Bring 2-3 liters of water on this hike. Water can also be purified in the streams and springs. There are restrooms at the trailhead.

Ascended via the SouthEast face - class3/4 scramble. Great route accessed via the wide hollow canyon wash out. Normal route descent with a bit of bushwhacking and bagging another 10k/ft peak on the way ;)
