Follow the I-215 eastbound and take the exit for the Cottonwood Canyons. Turn east up Big Cottonwood Canyon and drive until you reach an "S-curve." The trailhead begins here and climbs steeply to the south.
Sundial Peak stands above Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon, minutes away from Salt Lake City, Utah. The trail to the lake is a three-mile, steep hike but more than rewarding.
