Utah Photo Safari: Donut Falls


Donut Falls trailhead
Originally uploaded by hpebley3

The Utah Photo Safari group's next adventure is this Saturday at Donut Falls. We'll meet at the carpool parking lot near the beginning of Big Cottonwood Canyon at 6:00 pm and then drive up to the trail head (a couple yards shy of the 11 mile marker). The plan is to be on the trail at 6:30 pm. Hopefully we should be able to get some good evening, low-light shots.

It takes roughly 30 minutes to hike the trail which is a pretty easy hike of 1.5 miles round trip with an elevation gain of only 420 feet. Plan on being at the falls for about an hour. Total trail time should be around 2 hours. The path is well-maintained and suitable for all ages.

In addition to your camera, you'll probably want to bring along:

  • Water
  • Bug spray
  • A flashlight
  • A tripod

Anyone interested is invited.

After the hike we'll be meeting at Porcupine Grill around 9:00 pm. If you're planning on coming to eat, please RSVP on this thread so reservations can be made.
