Mt. Baldy is a rock scree alpine site located above the Snowbird Resort. A short tram ride takes you to the top of the mountain; from there, we will hike down a ski trail, then back up to an elevation above 11,000 ft. July is an ideal time to see the alpine flora in its full glory. You will see endemic species of Penstemon, Castilleja, Eriogonum, numerous cushion plants in the Brassicaceae and Caryophyllaceae families, and the rare Ivesia utahensis (Rosaceae). Be prepared for hiking elevation - narrow trail, some up and down - about a mile each way. Bring water and a jacket. A species list will be provided. Fee includes ticket for the tram.
Includes tram transportation, snack and water
