Y Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The immense concrete letter Y on the mountainside directly east of the Brigham Young University campus in Provo is visible for miles around Utah Valley. The trail to the Y is a series of a dozen switchbacks offering splendid views of the valley along the way. It’s a popular workout or training hike."
