Storm Castle trail
Hiking - moderate

A genuine mountain trail that melts clear comparatively early in the season, Storm Castle’s mostly open slopes and southern exposure attract lots of valley hikers in the late spring. The trail also shows consistent elevation gain for getting in shape and several prominent outcroppings for viewing the Gallatin River, the Storm Castle drainage, and out over the Spanish Fork to the West. I’ve been warned about an abundance of ticks on this trail, but try as I might, over and over again, I find no pests, only reasons to come back. 

If you're looking for... another unobstructed aerie, try Sacajawea Peak or Mount Blackmore.

Distance:  Out-and-back, 2.5 miles, one-way

Elevation gain:  2,000 feet

Seasons:  April to October, weather permitting

Celebrated the end of September with a hike up to Storm Castle, the trail newly reopened after weeks of fire-danger closure. A fine trip as always, and the autumn color was at a spectacular level. A fair number of people, surprisingly little haze. All in all, a great day.
