August 3 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Bonanza Flat and Lackawaxen Lake Hike with Utah Open Lands Tuesday, August 3
Wendy Fisher, executive director of Utah Open Lands (UOL), and Michael O’Malley, Deer Valley mountain host, will lead a four-hour hike through the beautiful 1,534-acre conservation easement that is managed by UOL.
We’ll follow a six-mile roundtrip, moderate-to-strenuous route (1,000-foot vertical rise) through different biozones, culminating at Lackawaxen Lake, an alpine pool nestled below Clayton Peak. Wendy is our ecology expert, and Michael will cover the mining history. The operative phrase? “It wasn’t much of a bonanza, and it sure ain’t flat.” We’ll break a sweat on this one, and learn about some fauna, flora, and colorful characters.
Meet at the Bloods Lake Trailhead on Guardsman Pass Road at 9:00 am sharp. The hike should conclude about 1:00 pm. Bring plenty of water, sturdy footwear, camera, lunch, insect spray and sunscreen, and your curiosity.
