My family and I decided to take a drive up to the top. The views were amazing and we were even lucky enough to see some wildlife. Highly recommended during the summer.

Head up to the top, summer only of course, and spend some time enjoying the view and wild life viewing opportunity. If you go around dusk, there is a good chance you will see a moose in the alpine meadow.

It is a gorgeous drive up. It's so worth it to go up and hike or bike. Take a picnic. The views are amazing.

Outstanding drive when the fall colors are out. Bring your camera. You can't stop taking one picture after another.

In summer, it allows easy access to the Brighton/Solitude Area for beautiful Alpine hikes (about 20 minutes from PC). This is a spectacular short drive especially during fall season showcasing a huge array of colors. You are driving up SR224 to Guardmans' passing Empire pass with some of the most expensive Real Estate properties in DV as well as the No 1 rated Montague Hotel - stop in for a drink or tea or chill on their terrace.
This route gives access to the famous Wasatch Crest trail, a favorite for mountain bikers offering panoramic views all the way down to SLC.
