Went with friends last weekend in the morning. We hiked off trail and it was intense. Very woodsy and wet in spots. Beautiful view for sure. Would like to do it again and see how the trail goes.

Beautiful canyon and impressive views. Lots of trails are in this area, which is a HUGE plus. Parking can sometimes be an issue, so don't be surprised when there are lots of vehicles everywhere in this canyon.

We love this drive! Doughnut Falls hike is in this drive up the canyon and it was so worth it! We also went to the top for Rockhounding and that was very peaceful! Free to drive into canyon!

Nice drive up a pretty canyon. Lots of hiking trails in the canyon, and 2 ski resorts (Solitude and Brighton).

Very scenic drive with lots possibilities. There is a lake at the top that is a very short walk from a parking lot and 2 ski resorts. Then are also many trails to hike if you want more that just a scenic drive.

Nice drive through the pass. Scenic, ordinary for the area; but still worth it. Close in to Salt Lake.
