Beautiful fall hike with the exception of being attacked by dogs. A woman had two pit bulls off leash who charged my wife and I. We kept them back with hiking poles for a few seconds. Then they split and were circling us as the owner was acting as if it was no big deal. They were barking, snarling and lunging. At this point I drew my pistol and the owner finally took the situation seriously. This situation ended with no-one being injured. Be careful up there. Our hike was not as fun as we had imagined it would have been due to a very irresponsible dog owner. We love dogs and have three of our own. The last thing I would ever want to do is shoot a dog, but I will not allow my wife or myself to be mauled by dogs.
I highly recommend this easy hike to the top otherwise. It has a beautiful scenic overlook above Ogden and the Wasatch Range.
We did a long version of this hike, heading down Gibbs loop and up and then up the waterfall trail and back down the shorter way. It was a fun day, challenging while carrying our kids on our backs! The waterfall was mostly dried up but still pretty and the views were great, especially with the fall colors!
Beautiful in the fall!! A few different turns so it tough to stay on the correct path but used this app and we were good to go. The pond is very small so don't expect much. Most is pretty flat except the initial climb up to the trailhead. They will give you a map inside the lodge as well.
