Lambs Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Old-growth forests of spruce and fir, shared with quaking aspen, line a canyon fed by several springs. A steep trail to an 8,100-foot pass offers views into the valley before leading down Elbow Fork and into Mill Creek Canyon.

It’s a symphony of woods, wildflowers, berries, creeks, and views. This is a great snowshoe trail in the depths of winter, and easily accessed on cross-country skis along Mill Creek Canyon."

"Lambs Canyon does not have the busy notoriety of the trails located in the larger canyons of the Wasatch, making it one of the most quiet and remote escapes with an easy-access trailhead. In a protected, narrow canyon, the trail winds beneath tall, straight evergreens and aspen accompanied by birdsong and the jangle of the stream.

This trail climbs to the top of the canyon and looks down into Mill Creek Canyon on the other side of the ridge. Alpine beauty at its best, this lovely escape is one of my favorite hikes."
