MOUNT OLYMPUS – Several volunteers gave up several hours of their weekend to clean up Pete’s Rock.

In February, the rock located at the trailhead of Mount Olympus was tagged with crude graffiti. On Sunday volunteers from the Wasatch Mountain Club held a pre-hike painting party at the local landmark. They came with paint and brushes to cover up the graffiti and clean up the area.

The local outdoor recreation organization formed in 1920. It recently partnered with Salt Lake County to formally adopt the Mount Olympus Trailhead.
