110. A-21 Little Mountain Summit – Look For

An exhibit with information about the Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail overlooks Little Dell Reservoir
A carsonite post marks the original historic trail heading into Emigration Canyon.

A stone monument, an interpretive wayside exhibit about the Mormon Trail, and restrooms are located here. Look downslope from the wayside exhibit toward a white fiberglass post that is set between two red sandstone blocks. The post marks wagon swales near the crest of the mountain. The trail alignment continues diagonally across the highway behind you.

Cautiously cross to the opposite side of the road and look down the hillside to view wagon ruts descending Little Mountain. Now look west (or left) into the distance. Here Brigham Young’s scouts caught their second joyful glimpse of the Salt Lake Valley.
