Twin Peaks Wilderness Trails

Twin Peaks Wilderness Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The Twin Peaks from which this wilderness derives its name are glaciated crags of quartzite and granite shouldering 11,328 and 11,330 feet into the sky. O’Sullivan Peak and Dromedary Peak also top 11,000 feet. Lake Lillian and Lake Blanche are popular destinations for both hiking and trout fishing. This small wilderness area is bounded on the north by Big Cottonwood Canyon and on the south by Little Cottonwood Canyon.

The city of Salt Lake sits at the western base. The southern edge of Twin Peaks Wilderness is so steep that no hiking trails lead up the cliffs. For trailheads on the northern edge, take the 6200 South exit from I-215 and drive east-southeast about 1.8 miles. 6200 South becomes Wasatch Blvd. At the intersection with Fort Union Blvd., at a stoplight, turn left on Fort Union and drive into Big Cottonwood Canyon. The road is paved. This trail guide includes descriptions of Lake Blache."
