Tough hike. It definitely deserves the hard rating.

Reasonably technical in several spots. Bridges over most streams. Not too busy for a Friday. Horses, hikers, mountain bikes. All friendly. Watch out for poop though. Great 10 mile ride. 2.5 hours on pedelec.

We went up and down very easily and the waterfall beautiful.

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!

Nice trail, great scenery. But not a good trail for running. For me, most of it was too steep an technical to run, though I am am extra careful not to reinjure my knee. I did slip/trip three times.

This is easy hike all the way to the waterfall and cross the stream and continue on the trail you will see a car in your right and continue to the end there is another white car.

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.

Excellent early morning run. Make sure to take a few of the off shoot trails up the draws. They the climbing is fun and the vistas are worth it!

Very family friendly. Very flat. The north side is much more shaded.

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.
