Willow Heights Hike


Distance:  3/4 mile one-way so about 1.5 miles total.
Time: 1 hour to get there depending on kids' ages
Directions: 
After driving 11.2 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon you will come to Silver Fork Lodge. Drive 0.3 miles to the trailhead and park on the left side of the road. You will see a stone sign marking the trailhead.
(I completely passed it the first time then turned around and it was much clearer to see the trail coming down the canyon.)

This is what the trailhead looks like where you park on the road.

 
The Willow Heights hike has been one of the hardest hikes I've done with my kids. It's only 3/4 of a mile one-way (1.5 miles round trip) but for little hikers this was quite a distance. And the beginning was pretty up-hill which meant the last part coming back was pretty steep down hill. But the scenery was incredible.
 

Our end goal was the small lake and it was sure pretty! I love the aspen trees too.



 








Hiking with friends sure is fun.

Hiking can't always be fun. Sometimes a melt down occurs.


 
Overall this hike was very fun and the scenery was just beautiful. It was a little difficult with a baby in a pack and a 3 year old. Since we were with a group, we had older children and adults who could help the toddlers. However, I wouldn't attempt it alone with my 2 kids.
