Hot trail with little shade. Good hike for kids but bring lots of water.

Easy hike, we did this one in the evening which is perfect because there's no shade. The bridge is so pretty if you continue behind and look back over the canyon and the bridge.

Beautiful! Fun hike!

favorite short hike. also good running trail along BST that leads to the bridge.

One of my favorite easy trails! They finally allowed dogs on it this year and now they're banned again so we're pretty sad!

I really like this trail. The very beginning is steep, but once you get past that first little bit the trail isnt too bad. It is narrow, but fairly easy (my 3 elementary age kids could easily hike this one). The bridge at the end is fun and the views are pretty. I went in the morning. If you go when the sun is high it will be hot.

Go in the evening. There was not a lot of shade.

Hiked up the sawmill trail numerous times but until yesterday never beyond the first creek after crossing over into Big Willow. Yesterday I kept going up the steep wooded slopes and beyond. The trail opened up some above the thick forested section and there were great views back down the valley. I kept going up through Aspen and scattered fir trees, sometimes steep and other times through small meadows. The Rocky Mouth ridgeline on the north side of the canyon appears almost like Bell's Canyon. I encountered another solo hiker and we encouraged one another to keep going. The trail is faint at times but the red tags on the trees and pink ribbon tape helped us keep on track. As we approached the top meadow another hiker appeared behind us. It was a man named Ted who was fit beyond belief and who said he hiked up there regularly. We followed him through the top meadow to a ridge overlooking Bell's Canyon with fantastic views of Twin Peaks, etc. It took me 4 hours up and 3 back down, crossing three streams in Big Willow canyon. My hiking app said I had gone 9.9 miles and 4911' elevation gain. Great hike but certainly challenging and on most days you will encounter few or no other hikers.

A very pretty, very easy little hike! The bridge is lovely, and I enjoyed the views of the valley. The path is nicely shaded.

Little/Big Willow canyons and rocky mouth peak. Also Lone peak

I took the BST out to the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge and then took the Aqueduct trail back to Hidden Valley Park where I parked. I think taking the BST was a prettier trail and would probably do that as an out and back instead of a loop. Nice trail.

Close to home, cell service the whole way, beautiful view of the valley. What more could you ask for? P.S. Best done in the morning to avoid sun exposure

Is this the one that starts across from the church parking lot where they shoot the harpoon gun across the mouth of the canyon to anchor the massive American flag

Went in the evening as the sun set and it was beautiful. We missed the trail back to the parking lot because we accidentally stayed on the BST trail, cost us an extra half mile but it was fun on the north side too.

straight up the mountain. made it about 3 miles up then decided it was getting late. going to return and hike over into bells canyon and down wonder if the trail connects.

Awesome trail for a family hike

First of all the GPS coordinates are incorrect, the directions direct you to a dead end neighborhood one street over from the actual trailhead. Once you are at the trailhead it is called Bonneville Shoreline trail. It is approximately 4.2 miles and is an easy hike. Not amazing views, but a nice view over the valley.

Pretty hike. Nice bridge to cross.
