    Utah originates from an Apache Indian word (yuttahih), which means people of the mountains.

    Donut Falls is pretty cool, easy hike. Go early in the morning. Mt. Olympus kills your legs, and takes a lot longer. Lake Blanche is very scenic, and decently long.

    Thanks for the website! Lots of great suggestions and information. Mt. Olympus kicked my tail last weekend. Made it to the scree field before heading back down the mountain. Perhaps Donut Falls and Lake Blanche will be on the schedule for this coming weekend. Let the fun continue!

    Great suggestions! Have you hiked Timp or Nebo by any chance?

    Yeah. Timp is alright. If I remember, it's something like a 1.5 hour hike up. The cave is interesting to walk through.

    I did Timp last summer, but didn't go all the way up. We started too late.

    Only been hiking in Utah once but it was a memorable trip.

    King's Peak (elev. 13,528') in the High Uintas wilderness is an absolutely fantastic mountain. Took the Henry's Fork trailhead approach and did the 30-mile or so round trip over 3 days, staying at Dollar Lake.

    If you ever climb this mountain in the heart of summer, you should see plenty of other hikers so even though I did it solo, I never really felt like I was by myself out there.

    Hope you got in some good hiking this year!

    I know the OP asked about SLC and Park City area, but theres tons of great hiking to be done in southern Utah... like in Zion, Canyonlands, Moab, Arches, etc.
