Mount Olympus

Mount Olympus 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.

  • It can be done in 6-8 hours round trip.
  • You climb 4096 feet over 2.8 miles (5.6 miles round trip).
  • 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
  • This hike is fairly steep. Once you get to the shoulder and turn north, you have to put the treking poles away and start using your hands to climb. No ropes required, however.
