"A 15-mile highway up a beautiful, sheer-walled canyon, opening into a forested, glaciated high mountain valley. Big Cottonwood Canyon Scenic Byway follows a stream through a beautiful canyon, up into the high mountains. The two-lane road is paved and has numerous scenic turnouts.

Traffic is very steady and may move slowly. Watch for joggers and bicyclists on the highway. Special attractions: Mount Olympus and Twin Peaks wilderness areas, Solitude and Brighton ski areas, camping, interesting geology, hiking. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
