Ascent Trip Report

Started from the upper parking lot on the road going to Silver Lake Reservoir on Trail 043. Hiked to the meadows then up the north ridge on a great trail. From the top we hiked down and then did South Box Elder. From there we scrambled down to Trail 044 and hiked east until the pass and did South East Box Elder. We hiked all the way out Trail 044 until Granite Flat Campgrounds. Hit Trail 043 again up to our car. Very long and strenuous day, but oohh so fun!
Trail 043 is my favorite hike in Utah.
