Of the four main routes to Wasson Peak, the Sweetwater Trail is the least crowded and the second longest. The hike is relatively gentle to the pass, which marks the end of the Sweetwater Trail and where there are fine views to north and south. It’s a satisfying destination for hikers with younger children or those with limited time. If you can continue on the steeper section to Wasson Peak, the panorama is definitely rewarding. After an appropriately moist winter, you can expect spring wildflowers, though if the winter has been dry there won’t be much of a bloom.
