Mount Olympus

 Elevation: 9026  Feature: Peak
Notes: It is one of the more popular hikes in Salt Lake County. It has a really distinctive appearance when you look at it from the west, and is a fun climb. At the peak you can see all of Salt Lake Valley, from Willard Bay on the north to Utah Lake on the south. You can also see quite a few other Wasatch peaks.
