Great hike! Parking is hard to come by at the Trailhead
Nice area that's easy to get to.
Some great options. FYI. Doesn't just go in a loop.
We have done this trail many times!!!!! Always something new to see!!!
Enjoyed it even in the rain
Very quiet and peaceful. More of a stress relief hike than a challenge or workout. Still a new favorite for an easy but pretty walk.
Little shade and gets extremely hot midday because it's in town. The trail was a little confusing too. Bikers are also extremely inconsiderate of hikers and just zoom past you.
Hiked it. Nice if you want a close place to hike in town but poorly marked and not very challenging.
Clean, beautiful trail! Confusing at some sections of the trail but overall very fun!!
Confusing at first, busy but lots too see. We did the larger loop and we're happy to carry a topo
Map. Don't rely on markers.
So this trip started out disappointing. My sister and I veered right because the trails looked less traveled. Well, there's a reason. They suck. They're not marked and you can always hear and/or see the road. We started to head back to where we started and veered left. MUCH better. The trails are a bit more defined and marked. We still got lost but the views were good and the hiking was nice. It took us about 2 hours from start to finish for the entire trip.
There is a parking lot just past the high school with port-o-potties. We started at 0830 and it was pretty slow but we ended around 1010 and the traffic was starting to pick up. Hikers and mountain bikers. It's also popular with dogs.
hike it every week. love this trail!
needs more trail markers.I have never met anyone that has not gotten lost there.
nice in town hiking
Great loop for mountain biking, hiking, and trail running. Mostly easy with some technical sections on the south end of the loop. I like to run the loop twice for a nice trail run with moderate elev. gain (about 450ft. each loop).
I love riding the trails of Ute Valley. It has everything from easy mellow rides to uber technical all in a short distance from my house.
