Mount Aire

MillCreek Canyon
Elbow Fork
Wasatch Mountains

Salt Lake City, Utah

Mount Aire is one of the shorter hikes to get a summit view.
It is steep, and depending on when you hike it - goes from a dusty trail to a slippery mud trail. On top of Mount Aire there is a lot of sandstone, which is usually not found in the southern Wasatch.There was water in the drying stream but it soon becomes a trinkle near the pass.

Dogs are allowed in Millcreek Canyon.
