I went the wrong way at first because the Northface race was happening but once I got back on track it was awesome! Great views with lookout points and benches. Beautiful fall colors! I didn't do the whole trail and ended up using the Spiro Connector to take Dawn's Trail.

A great hike with incredible views. We made a loop of it with Silver Lake up to the summit and Ontario Canyon down. This was a little over two hours for us, but we weren't in a hurry. If doing a loop, I recommend Silver Lake up. It is steeper and with loose rock. Both trails begin near the bottom of the Sterling Express lift and were generally well marked.

Views towards the top of the Silver Lake trail were the most breathtaking we've seen in our Park City hikes.

The lift stopped running daily September 5. So if you're planning on a free lift down (like some other comments) instead of hiking down, check that it's running.

Spiro is a beautiful trail. Going up, the downward bike traffic is a little annoying. But the views are beautiful, particularly at higher elevations.

There is no parking at the trail head and finding parking is not obvious. Park as if you were going to the Silver Star Cafe. The trail head is just beyond the cafe and the Silver Star lift, on your right.

Hike up and take the lift down. Well marked and maintained trail. Not difficult. A very pleasant hike. It took me about 40 minutes to reach the top. Wear a hat and sunscreen, and take water.

Great trail. It was suggested by Silver Star Rental that we take Arrowhead to avoid heavy bike traffic and then pick up Spiro. Which we did, however, we saw limited bikes due to being a Monday we guessed. Going the suggested way we logged in about 2-3 more miles. No bugs which was great, had the pleasure of many birds. A trail well worth it.

A heart pounding hike. The hike will take you through the forest and out in the direct sun on your way up the mountain. And there are no bike allowed on this trail. Some views especially at the top. Overall a nice hike, but for me I like some more variety especially running water. But in this area, this is about as good as it gets. Oh, and the best part is the free ride down on the chair lift. Ahh, nice views and relaxing.

Beautiful hike. Trail is well maintained and well marked. Don't try to hike down the biking trails they are much harder.
