Mt. Olympus is one of the most popular and beautiful hikes in the Wasatch. This hike is popular because it is not terribly long (only about 6 miles) from top to bottom, the trail head is very close to the valley floor (easy access) and at the peak you get an amazing few of the Salt Lake City valley.
Mt. Olympus stars me down everyday on the way to work or through my bedroom window and tries to lure me in to climb. I have to fight the urge to drop everything and just go. Mt. Olympus is one of my favorite mountains to climb. Thanks Mt. Olympus for all the great climbs and the moments of solitude. If you are interested in the climb, check it out here.
