Thread: Airplane Point at Powder Mountain

  1. #1

    Airplane Point at Powder Mountain

    This is a very short trail, under 1 mile out to the Paper Airplane, but gives a great view over Ogden Valley, and clear out to the Great Salt Lake.

    I've heard a rumor that the paper airplane isn't going to stay in this location, so hurry and get there before it moves!

    Here are a few shots, I also brought the drone out and GoPro, so I'll have some video soon.

    Here is the route, parking up at the lodge above Hidden Lake lift. The trail continues from the Paper Airplane, but I'm not sure where it goes. I'm assuming it would run into the Brim Trail at some point.

    And a few photos. Please note, you will not be able to see it from this same angle on foot, I had my drone take a few aerials.

    I'm not quite sure, but I heard it was fabricated down in the valley, then probably brought up by helicopter. I've also heard it won't stay there, but that may be just a rumor.

    It could be to add some interest to the trails up there. It has definitely brought more people to the trails, seeing the photos on facebook. Plus, the development of housing for the Summit friends up there, maybe it's good for selfies.

    Other than riding up on it around the turn, the trail out to it is very short, under a mile. So I'm not sure what the purpose is. It's a scenic point though.
