🏑 Description

Pass Canyon is a south facing canyon in the Oquirrh Mountains of Utah. There is a trail that leads to a pass next to Barney Peak that can be hiked, best from the north side. Start from the Churchwood Road trailhead in Pine Canyon. Massive rock formations mixed with patches of gamble oak and big tooth maple in the canyon bottom and north facing slopes. South facing slopes dominated by curl leaf mahogany as well as oak. Wildflowers are profuse in the spring with mule’s ears, balsam root, indian paintbrush, scarlet gilia, among others. A large and diverse population of butterflies also can be seen, especially in June. Golden eagles, wild turkeys, grouse, scrub jays, crows, and many other species of birds are there as well. Not a heavily trafficked canyon. This is a relatively wild canyon for being so close to a decent sized community. The canyon gets hot in July and August because it predominantly faces south.
