4 miles round trip fun hike great to get in shape
Not one of my favorites because you're constantly moving out of the way for mountain bikers. It also seems that this trail has taken quite a beating over the years, too. There are several different spots where the trail has given way, and completely fallen off from excessive use. But I used to walk this trail a lot with my grandmother when I was a kid, and always loved it. Stop in for some lunch or dinner afterward at Rainbow Gardens! It's usually only about an hour or so to complete.
This was a good first hike for us, too. Not much bird activity.
This was my first hike. Easy starter hike, very scenic. Not too long, but as others have said, it does get confusing when you reach the neighborhood and have to find where the trail reconnects.
Great family hike. The kids did great. Lots of shade. My only complaint is that you end up walking through a neighborhood for a while and it isn't completely clear where to go so we ended up turned around for a bit.
we didn't finish the whole thing, were confused by coming up into a city. we still enjoyed it and plan to go the backend next time so we can see the cars.
It's ok for a quick little easy walk. Probably a great place to take small children. I prefer the other hikes available nearby however
This is a good trail. Just be aware that for about 1/5 of it you have to walk through a neighborhood.
Short accessible hike with lots of shade. Minimal elevation gain. A little underwhelming, but excellent for those looking to get away from the heat for a nature walk.
Short hike perfect for kids. Some windflowers and view of ogden canyon.
