    Route Description for Broads Fork Trail

    The Broads Fork Trail is a gorgeous route in the Twin Peaks Wilderness East of Salt Lake City, Utah. This hike is short but steep, climbing over 610 m in elevation over just over two miles. When you hike this route, be sure to arrive with proper, supportive hiking footwear and more water than you think you’ll need. If you are hiking this route in the winter, traction devices and hiking poles can be a huge help on the icy and slippery sections of the trail. No matter when you go, Broads Fork Trail always delivers incredible views and a seriously good workout.

    From the Mill D South Trailhead, follow the trail on your right to head west, then south along Broads Fork. Continue south up to the viewpoint.

    Take a well-deserved rest at the top and admire the stunning views before turning around and following the same route back down to the trailhead.
