Cottonwood Canyons Milepost Landmarks

For those that are frequent travelers through of the Cottonwood Canyons, many landmarks or slide zones areas that we refer to in our social media posts for updates, slides, or crashes (7 Turns, Tanners Hill, S Turns, Torpedo Hill, etc.) are familiar, but for others who are new to traveling in the canyons, that is not always the case. 
We’ve put together an interactive map that points to all of these landmarks in each canyon. The blue dots will give you the name and a link to the Google street view.
