Sessions Canyon Trail is a 5.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Bountiful, Utah that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until November. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Sessions Canyon climbs up a creek canyon from directly above Bountiful, UT. It is a lovely canyon, with lots of shade and a beautiful babbling creek throughout. However, footing is sometimes poor, and the farther you go, the poorer and more overgrown the trail gets. After dropping 100' from the parking lot into the canyon, the trail climbs steadily, closely following the creek and crossing it numerous times. The footing is sometimes poor, and at times of very heavy flow, creek crossing could be difficult (while it is never a challenge in summer).
Hard. October, lots of moisture. Have hiking shoes. Went up like 10 miles ran out of trail. Saw elephant rock and the pipeline. No waterfall. Hard past 5 miles. Thick vegetation.
Great hike, 6,5mies to the pipeline- you can hear the stream most of the way- mostly shaded. Four legged pooches really had fun.
A nice, calm journey. I don't think it should be considered "hard."
This is a nice hike if you do it around 8am it's shaded all the way.
there is a stream you follow some of the way.
One of the most beautiful trails I've done. We took the lower trail so it was very shaded and followed along the creek. It was a pretty hard trail when you're carrying a 40 pound backpack occupied by a toddler. We only made it one mile in before turning around. We took our 6 and 9 year old and they loved it. But it's definitely not a trail I'd do with younger kids than that. Even though it was beautiful, it was indeed a very steep trail.
Nice trail, you have to go across the stream often, but it was fun. We didn't reach the end of the trail, but by the time we got back to our vehicle we had gone approx. 5.27 miles so the trail is longer than the posted 5.1 miles.
My pup and I enjoyed this hike. There was not too much traffic on the trail... actually hardly any...and crossing back and forth over the river was pretty fun.
Very fun trail. We kept going for about another thirty minutes past where the All Trails map had the ending point because there was a pretty clear trail that still kept going up - so we did about 7 miles round trip but it definitely could have been longer. You'll more than likely get your feet wet and it's quite overgrown about two miles in for most of the hike. We even spotted some sport climbing rocks on the way so that was neat. Overall a great trail! We didn't run into anyone.
