Trailhead
Dry Creek TH
Trailhead Elevation: 5660 ft
Trailhead Outhouse: No
Area: Utah Valley
Area Location: Various locations on east and north ends of the valley
Area Fee: None
Dogs Allowed: Yes
Notes: Dry Creek is a popular trailhead with hikers and horse riders, located in the northeast corner of Alpine. It is one of the few trailheads left in Alpine that does not cross private land and is assured of never being cut off by development. The trailhead is at the end of the road that goes past the Alpine Rodeo Grounds.



Destination
East Hamongog
 Elevation: 7280  Feature: Meadow
Notes: It’s not as well known as the other 2 hamongogs (meadows), and people passing through might not even realize they are in the hamongog. Still, in my opinion, its the easiest way to Lake Hardy.
