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.

After visiting Park City for part of the day, we chose to drive Big cottonwood Canyon road back to the Salt Lake City Area. The switchbacks were fun and views were worth it.

Big Cottonwood Canyon is a beautiful drive that's worth it just to see. But it's also a cool way to get up to Park City that's a little more interesting than the highway. There are a few great hikes right off the road, especially Doughnut Falls. Love this place!

Beautiful views! Great place to spend time hiking and enjoying the outdoors! Very relaxing. Fun for the whole family or just to get away by yourself. Nice for a romantic walk!

Took a late afternoon hike here and was a good 10 degrees (celcius) difference to down town. Abundance of wildflowers and views all around. Highly recommended.
