1. Albion Basin Hike, Little Cottonwood Canyon: Located between Alta Ski Resort and Cecret Lake. Wild flowers usually bloom here in July and August. You can walk this trail all the way to Cecret Lake, but it will add an extra 3 miles to get to the Cecret Lake trailhead. We like to walk this trail until we get tired and turn around.
2. Cecret Lake, Little Cottonwood Canyon: Cecret Lake in Little Cottonwood Canyon is a very popular hike. So popular that there is now a fee to get to the trailhead and parking can be very sparse at the trailhead. This hike is about 2 miles roundtrip and fairly easy with amazing wildflowers along the way from June – July. Note: the road to Cecret Lake may be closed for 2022, however, you can still reach it from Albion Basin which is open.
3. Twin Lakes, Big Cottonwood Canyon: this 2.4 mile hike to Twin Lakes offers great views and many wildflowers. The trailhead for this hike is about a quarter of a mile into the loop hike of Silver Lake. Nearby Lake Solitude is also a great option for wildflowers in late July and August.
4. Tony Grove Nature Trail, Logan Canyon: this easy hike is just 1.2 miles around Tony Grove lake. The high elevation makes for late bloomer with the best time to catch wildflowers in late July through early August. Tony Grove is in Logan canyon.
5. Mount Timpanogos Trails American Fork Canyon: Mount Timpanogos is located in the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Aspen Grove trail and the Timpooneke trail (both trails are around 7 miles one way) lead to Emerald Lake with some amazing wildflower displays. Peak wildflower viewing times are late July and early August.
6. Willow Lake, Big Cottonwood: this is a fairly easy hike to the lake at 1.5 miles round trip or add an extra .65 miles if you take the loop around the lake. Wildflowers are in bloom June-July. This is also a popular place to spot moose.
7. Cascade Springs, American Fork Canyon: The Alpine Loop road turns to Cascade Springs. This is a great walk with boardwalks that cross over streams and waterfalls. Wildflowers bloom June – August.
