Storm Mountain Picnic Area- Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT

Location: Wasatch Range, 2.85 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon.  Park either on the side of road or in the Storm Mountain Picnic area.

Cost: $7 day use only, if you park in the Picnic area.

What to expect: Fishing at the river, clean sites with fire pit, flushing bathrooms, and a playground for the kids.  Plus tons of climbing in and around!

This has become one of our favorite family climbing areas.  $7 is totally worth having a playground, shade and toilets for the kids, while you can climb some great routes.  And it is only 25 minutes from our front stoop!

  1. WOW! This is a great spot Alyssa! We don't climb {well, I don't I'm terrified of heights, but I bet Dave would!} but I love the idea of going up and cooking grub and chatting while the kids play and the guys climb! 😀 Thanks girl!

  2. Not sure if you've found the routes around the corner (up canyon side) that are super easy 5.6/5.7ish that kids love (as well as people like me who need to bone up on some easy leading). If not, hit us up and we will direct you.
