Ferguson Canyon is a lesser known canyon between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. It is a beautiful hike, green and covered in wildflowers during the spring and early summer. This is a popular place for people to walk their dogs, so bring along your furry companion!

Directions: From the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, take Wasatch Boulevard south. Turn left at the first possible turn, which is Prospector Drive. Head right up the hill. Take a left on Timberline Drive. The trailhead parking will be on the right.

Just past the fenced in water tank, there will be a path to your right. Start climbing up (be sure to wear good shoes!). Climb to the small clearing that overlooks the water tank. The tree on the NW end of the clearing has rocks by it that you might want to check. Please rehide well to prevent accidental discovery!

Notes: Many thanks to deniserows for sending this lovely stamp and logbook to us from Alaska!
