Bell Canyon is a steep granite canyon dug out by a glacier that exposed some of the oldest Precambrian rock in the world. The canyon sits just south of Little Cottonwood Canyon and provides a steady, steep climb into a world of waterfalls, granite walls, and lush alpine environs. Along the way the trail affords views into the valley below, and the luscious waterfalls at the end are certainly worth the climb.
