Little Cottonwood Canyon Scenic Byway Professional Review and Guide

"A 12-mile highway from the Salt Lake Valley up through a narrow canyon to high mountain resorts. Little Cottonwood Canyon Scenic Byway traverses a narrow, sheer-walled canyon up into high mountain meadows. The two-lane road is paved as far as Alta and has numerous scenic turnouts.

The steady stream of traffic can move slowly. Watch for bicyclists and joggers on the shoulders. From Alta to Albion Basin the road surface is gravel. Special attractions: Twin Peaks and Lone Peak wilderness areas, Snowbird and Alta ski and summer resorts, rock climbing, camping, picnicking, 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."
