Big Cottonwood Canyon is an excellent place to spend a summer day, see fall leaves, ski during Utah's winter months or see spring wildflowers. The road is narrow in spots with a few tight bends, but it is well maintained and paved. I was in the canyon most recently to beat the heat with a short hike to Donut Falls on a hot summer day. The trail was crowded, as there were many people who had the same great idea, but it was still a lovely jaunt into wildflowers, meadows, and over a few rocks. There was plenty of wildlife to see despite the humans. The falls are pretty, but a little underwhelming, but in this case, it's about the journey as much as it is about the destination.
