day hike - willow lake - big cottonwood canyon

Willow Lake is a great short outing in Big Cottonwood Canyon that takes you through aspen forest to a small lake with great views of the ridgeline between big and little Cottonwood Canyons. This is a great hike for beginners or if you just feel like to take an easy Sunday morning "walk". The lake is mostly on forest service land, but the majority of the hike goes through the willow heights conservation area.The trailhead is marked with a stone commemorating the preservation of the conservation area. Get there by taking I-215 to the east, taking exit 6 off the interstate and heading east. Follow 6200 South which becomes Wasatch Blvd for 1.8 miles to the stop light and signs for Big Cottonwood Canyon. We will meet at the Park and Ride, then drive up for 11.6 miles to mile post 13.55.
