Big Cottonwood Canyon
Saturday, April 29 at 1:00p.m. MST
This hike is being hosted in collaboration with our friends at Wasatch Little Explorer’s Club. Check out their website to learn more about this amazing organization, review their events calendar for additional details about this hike and others that they offer, and to sign an activity waiver.
“Trail Details: 1.5 mile roundtrip hike. It starts out a little steep hill and opens into a meadow with tons of trees and a lake. This opens up in a big meadow and there are tons of trees for hammocks. If you know the Thornley family, you know they love their hammocks!
Directions: There is a marker trailhead 1/8th of a mile east of Silver Fork Lodge in Big Cottonwood Canyon, on the North side of the road.“
Sachi and her family were dealt a devastating blow last month when their 4 year old daughter Penny was diagnosed with a brain tumor and cancer. This hike is to help raise funds to support the Thornleys. We will be collecting and mailing out Visa gift cards so that Sachi can afford the organic, highly specific diet that is complementing Penny’s brutal cancer treatment that includes chemo, radiation, and multiple brain surgeries. You can also donate to the family’s GoFundMe page directly.
