The prayer flags are at the top of a hill near Eagle Mountain’s The Ranches. This trail is also called Treadstone and is part of a network of mountain biking trails in the area.

You can park either at the end of the housing development near Hidden Hollow Elementary and walk or ride from there or drive up the dirt road farther. Either way, the prayer flags are located at the top of the hill to the left in the first image. The most direct trail is to take the #1 path that heads straight in that photo and then it heads off to the right for a gradual slope up the mountain. When you get to the #5 sign in the next image, head left to the flags.

I’m not sure who put up these beautiful Tibetan-style flags, but I’m glad they did.

You can see a bit of Utah Lake to the east from the top of the hill.

To the north you see The Ranches area of Eagle Mountain.

Treadstone Trail

As you can see there isn’t much greenery on the trail, so there isn’t any shade. These photos are from early June. Bindweed isn’t my favorite thing in my yard, but it was beautiful to find the morning glory flowers along the trail.
