We had a hard time finding where to start this one, we parked in a little unmarked lot right where the pavement ends and turns into the dirt road up the canyon. The trail starts on the north side of the lot uphill. Very pretty as the leaves are starting to change. Uphill at first was hard for my daughter but overall an easy hike. It was fun checking out the old cars and there are some ropes you can use to get down to the base of the big waterfall. My kids LOVED that part of it, but they are older. Not something I would let 12 or under do. Not a busy trail at all, only saw a few others. We will definitely be back!
As other reviewers mentioned this trail is steep. The first third less steep. Also the switchbacks on the map must be overgrown because we never saw the switchbacks. the trail just went straight up where the switchback were supposed to be. All of the other recorded routes show this straight up too. Much of the trail is shaded except for the first and last sections. Also near the top there was a lot of noise from atv's and trucks on the road to Francis Peak. View of the shrinking great salt lake are amazing. You can climb higher to the ridge and see to the east clear to the Uinta mountains.
A good single track trail but narrow, wide enough for single file hiking. Not wide enough for a stroller. Was able to hike 1.2 miles with stroller, but a lot of carrying the stroller. Ended up turning back as the trails continued to narrow.
Easy to moderate difficult trail, not stroller friendly. With stroller trail is hard but can be fine with a but of effort.
