Really a fun hike. best part is no one else really thinks to hike it. my advice is to get to the top via isreal canyon, and if you can arrange for a shuttle, then take the ridge north for like 4 or 5 miles and it'll dump you right into silver lake in eagle mountain. be careful during hunting season. view from the top are epic
We hiked this today with the whole family and our dog. We only hiked up to the little handmade teepee and back which was about 2.3 miles. Pretty easy hike. There is a lot of vehicle traffic on this trail, including ATV's, Dirt Bikes, etc. Had fun looking around for "treasure" as our kids call it but decided to head back when we noticed a lot of people target shooting in the area. Sunday was probably a popular time for folks to go shooting up there so we weren't too alarmed. We will probably be back to do the full hike to the top but will choose a less busy time. There are some amazing views of Utah Lake up this trail and definitely worth the effort!
Great view from the top.
Fantastic hike. Picked up by a Raser for the last half of the ride!
This is a very nice early season hike if you want to avoid snow and mud with a great view of the Wasatch Mountains from North Salt Lake to Mount Nebo
