I really enjoyed this hike! I brought my 5 month old puppy on the hike (she was on a leash) and I thought it was a quite easy hike. Great views on the way up and the view on the top was great! We started the hike on a Friday at about 11 and the trail had moderate traffic. It was about 50/50 cyclists and hikes but everyone was quite courteous of each other. I will definitely do this hike again!

Pretty gentle climb up to a spectacular view of Ogden and the Great Salt Lake. Beautiful foliage along the way. Need to share the trail with lots of mountain bikers.

Great for both the journey and the destination. Mostly through the trees. This map does not show quite right as you turn left onto the Ogden Canyon Overlook trail when you summit (there is a sign). It is worth the extra bit of hiking to do the last leg of the trail through the pine trees with a great (somewhat shear drop off) view of the Ogden Valley and Canyon (12th Street)

Very easy trail to hike , trail is in great condition I'd rate this trail as easy we hiked 3 miles in 1 hour 37 minutes to the over look , we continued up Sardine Trail 1 mile then handed back . There are a few benches to sit and rest .. Great trail for Horses, biking , hiking , running .. Or a good stroll.
The views are Amazing , colors are popping right now .. One of my favorite hikes

My wife and our 2 year old twins love this hike, there is a little bit of everything for everyone. Don't be surprised if you come across hikes, mountain bikers and horses on this trail. Often times we venture down all the little trails that come across Maples.

We have taken several of our friends, their kids and also our parents on this hike. It is perfect for any age and people of any skill set. Enjoy!

Love this trail! It's very peaceful and shaded. It's perfect for after work because it's not too steep. I would say it's an easy trail. Make sure you bring big spray.

For a mountain biking trail this is fantastic a lot of densely shaded Trail but breaking out into beautiful views and overlooks and thrilling smooth downhill

Nice trail. Great view of the mouth of Ogden Canyon at the top. Nice climb but very gradual.
