The most easily recognizable symbol of Brigham Young University is the white, concrete Y that sits on the mountain overlooking the city of Provo. The trail to get there climbs 980 feet and is 1.2 miles long. It is a dirt trail with 13 switchbacks, fairly steep, but not too difficult for small children. This hike is fun for the whole family! And the view at the top is well worth the effort to get there!
