Mount Wire Trail

An incredible, moderately steep hike to the top of the beautiful Mount Wire peak overlooking the Salt Lake valley. The first half of the upwards trail follows the same route as the Living Room Hike, and then branches off to higher elevations. It is a well-trafficked cardio workout with a good mix of shaded areas and exposed mountainside trail with amazing views. A moderately difficult trail, it has a relatively short distance to a great payoff at the top. Also known as the Big Beacon Mount Wire Trail, the top has an old airway beacon that affords another 25 feet of elevation.
