USA, Utah: Kessler Peak and Donut Falls

I met Jessie at the airport this summer and we’ve recently become hiking buddies. We did Kessler with stunning views of snow-dusted, soon before a much heavier snowfall. Perfect weather and perfect timing.

This hike is a strenuous 4.5 mile hike with an elevation gain of 2,926 ft. It took us about 5-6 hours round-trip, although we hung out for quite a while at the summit.

The trailhead is about a 9 mile drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City. Turn right at Jordan Pines Picnic area to a dirt road and drive to a parking lot at the trailhead for Donut Falls.
