Five Senses Nature Trail is a 4.8 mile out and back trail located near Alpine, Utah and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from May until October.
The map and recorded track is for Mahogany Mountain North Peak not the five senses trail. Five senses is a nice easy walk with kids. Mahogany Mountain North Peak is a relentlessly step difficult trail for experienced hikers. Please don't follow the map expecting this to be the five senses trail. The mahogany Mountain trail gains 3000 feet in 2.5 Miles and has loose shell rock - great views but not a kid friendly trail.
Simple out and back. Paved. Had a few signs that help kids ID maple trees and scrub oak etc. This hike isn't a whole-day adventure, but rather a Sunday evening stroll with littles. 4 y/o liked looking for birds, and disappointed we didn't see any cougars. 3 y/o liked the signs.
Short, easy trail that has information of the local flora and fauna. Best to do this hike in conjunction with other hikes up American Fork Canyon.
This is nothing more than a nature trail with some informative signs about the evosystem of AF canyon posted along the way.
