This picnic area is about 1/4 of the way upbig cottonwood and has a myriad of activities to do for the entire family. Theres is a reservoir and creek for fishing as well as plenty of shade and picnic tables. There is also a little amphitheater to put on live performances!
As with any of my other reviews you know theres some good climbing around here. Storm mountain hosts a number of climbs including the first 5.10 in America! If these routes are clogged there is also Challenge buttress , the slips, and reservoir wall all within 10 minutes hike
This is pretty much an ideal day-use area for big groups. There's a good amount of parking and tons of spots at Storm Mountain. This has centralized bathrooms and two large dumpsters. Far enough up the canyon to be attractive but not too far up the canyon to be hard to get to. Close to some cool hiking trails too.
