Ascent Trip Report

This year for our Foutz family reunion, I got asked to plan a hike for those attendees willing to go on a hike. This year's reunion was held in Park City and I proposed we do a mid-day hike of Scott Hill along a portion of the Great Western Trail, a.k.a. a portion of the Wasatch Crest Trail. Rather than starting at Guardsman Pass, we drove down the Brighton side of the pass and started at a trail-head located on a sharp hairpin turn. This hike had 50 participants from just some of my siblings, some of our respective spouses and some of our immediate children (with 2 in-law children in the group & one foster child). The youngest participant, Levi, was less than a year old and the oldest participant was 54. There were 50 people in our group and everyone made it at least up to the ridge saddle and 37 of us made it to the summit of Scott Hill. Three of us continued on to bag Silver Benchmark and Murdock Peak, while the other 47 returned to the trail-head where we had parked our vehicles along Guardsman Pass Road. Since the "Others In Party" field is not large enough to contain all the participant's names, I'll list them here.
