Enthusiastic hikers went in search of wild hops through Empire Canyon on the Conservancy’s first Hops Hike of the season. Planted by German miners over one hundred years ago, the wild hops have flourished in our mountain wonderland! Hops will be harvested later in the season and crafted by Wasatch Brewing into a limited quantity beer available at Wasatch Brew Pub this fall. Hikes continue at different Conservancy protected areas throughout the summer. Click here for more information and the schedule of upcoming hikes.
