Brian Head Treasure Trail

*Prepare for hiking conditions, and finish by 4:30 p.m. to claim your prize in the Adventure Center.

Let your kids experience the fun, learning, and adventure of the Brian Head Treasure Trail. Stop by the Adventure Center at Giant Steps Lodge and get started on your own Brian Head Adventure. All the activities take place along the Family Adventure/Vista Trail and are fun and challenging for ages four and up. As you hike down, keep an eye open for treasure, clues and scrambled letters. Three different adventures await you:

Brian Head Resort Kids Treasure Hunt

The treasure hunt takes place as you hike down. Keep an eye out for certain items such as fossils, “gold” and a magic egg. When you return to the Adventure Center, you will get a matching bead for every item you find which will help you to create the Treasure Trail necklace.

Find the Golden Horseshoes

As you hike down the trail, find the letters printed on the golden horse shoes. Write them on the sheet we'll provide you and unscramble the letters when you get back to the Adventure Center. If you get the correct word, you'll receive a prize. Stop by the shop at Giant Steps Adventure Center to get started.

The Secret of Desbah

This adventure is more challenging for the older kids – and kids at heart. We'll give you a map, a compass, your first clue, and the rest is up to you. Follow the clues around the mountain – one clue leads to another. When you've successfully followed the clues and navigated the mountain, the Secret of Desbah will be revealed. Tell us what that secret is for a prize.

These activities are a $5 add-on to the cost of the lift ticket. The total price for a child is $10 and $15 for an adult. The entire trail is approximately 3 miles long. Make sure you have water, a jacket, appropriate shoes, sunscreen, and bug repellant. Please call (866)930-1010 ext. 213 for more information.

Lift operates Saturday – Sunday in June and September, and Friday through Sunday in July and August from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Brian Head Geocaching

For the 2013 summer season, Brian Head Resort is introducing a new recreational adventure center that combines geo-caching and orienteering for a fun outdoor treasure hunt. The adventure can be played with a GPS, or mobile device and other navigational techniques.

The general rules are simple: At the Giant Steps Adventure Center, you will be given a scorecard which includes the first clue. The first clue includes a grid coordinate and a terrain feature description. After riding the chairlift to the top, use the clue and your GPS to find the first “cache”. Once you locate it, you will find a distinctive punch mark for your scorecard, and the clue for traveling to the next cache. Make sure you get each punch mark for each cache.

There are ten caches to find as you work your way down the mountain for a total of about 3 miles. The route generally follows the Vista Trail. You must find the next cache along the route in order to get the clue for the following cache. The course is not self correcting. Some clues will be grid coordinates and others will be an azimuth (line of bearing) and distance.

For those treasure hunters who are competitive, record your start and finish time. Bring your completed scorecard and times back to the Adventure Center where we'll keep track of the season's fastest times.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with geo-caching or orienteering ask at the Adventure Center for a quick lesson.

The clues use the WGS84 and lat/long coordinate system. The azimuth clues are based on magnetic North and distance in meters.

Each cache is marked with a white and orange control flag.

Adult $10.00
Senior $6.00

Disc Golf at Brian Head Resort

A relaxing round of disc golf is yet another easy way to enjoy the beauty of our mountain and get some exercise while you play. Whether you're a veteran player or a first timer, our 18-hole disc golf course will be an experience you will not soon forget.

The total distance of the course is approximately 6 miles. If you plan on playing all 18 holes, allow yourself two to three hours, or shorten your game by hiking down and playing the bottom nine. We suggest that you be prepared for alpine conditions by bringing sunscreen, sunglasses, adequate water and hiking shoes. Due to some rough hiking conditions, we do not recommend the course for small children.
