Mount Olympus Trail


  • Mount Olympus is one of the most prominent and recognizable mountains viewable from practically every location in the Salt Lake Valley.
  • Although not the tallest peak along the Wasatch front, its unusual form and location make it an extremely popular summit.
  • One distinctive feature of the mountain are its twin peaks; the higher of the two is "Summit Peak" which rises 4,800 feet above the valley floor.
  • Most climbers reach the summit via the 3.1 mile Mount Olympus Trail, which is a steep climb from the mountain base to the summit.
  • Also a popular winter mountaineering route because the terrain is not as avalanche prone as many of the surrounding peaks.
  • Hiding near the base of the mountain, unknown to many locals, lies Utah's 2nd deepest, and America's 13th deepest cave, known as Neffs Cave.
