EAST CANYON

East Canyon is probably not a hiking destination but the family has a time share on a condo up there and we do spend a bit of time wandering the wilderness, thus the inclusion of East Canyon in the hiking menu.

East Canyon is just east of Layton but you have to go around the mountains via Ogden or up over the mountains on Highway 65. Itís not much to look at when you first arrive; cluttered with sagebrush and scrub oak, but once you make it into the mountains a bit the scenery becomes rather stunning. Just be careful where you wonder because almost all the property in the area is private so youíll have to have permission before you go traipsing around.

I donít know if there is even a name for any of the hikes weíve done in this area but I do know that there is plenty of wildlife to see. I think Iíve seen more moose in this area of Utah than I have in any other place. Youíll also find quite a few sage grouse, deer, and other birds. Because of the abundance of wildlife I always make sure I take a camera with me anytime I venture into these woods.
