The trail itself is fairly droll with not much to look at. There's a lot of close trees, shrubs, and bushes close to the path, which is lower than most of the landscape for much of the trek. So there's not much of a view until the very end where the trail dumps out out at the northern most end of Snow Canyon State Park. That turnaround point offers arguably the best view of the park you could possibly ask for. For all you photographers out there, the trail is easily marked and followed, so if you're willing to hike in the dark then the shots you'll get at sunrise will be a just reward.

Great hike for younger children. Took my 12 year old daughter with me and she didn't stop once. The overlook is breathtaking at the end! We'd go again!

Great hike at a slow pace you can make it in about 40 min and it's totally worth it. Quite rocky in the beginning and then sandy. Bring lots of water. :)

Love that we can take our dogs on this trail. We also don't usually run into many people which is nice. I don't love all the rocks for the first mile or so. But the view at the end is great (posted a picture). Make sure to leash your dog when you get close to the lookout. You have to guess since it is not marked that you are about there. But there isn't any sort of fence or anything so makes for a great view, but not so nice for a curious dog.

The sandy/rocky trail was okay, but the view from the overlooked was amazing! Great opportunity for some fun rock climbing and photos. We loved it!!

Lots of rocks starting out, have to watch your step for a while. Sand is a fun leg work out. Amazing view at the end.

The views are well worth the hike. The beginning of the hike can seem long while walking through the pinion pines but the cliff side look off is very rewarding.

Beginning was kind of strange because the trail was fenced in. After about a mile it opens up into a beautiful wide open hike. The overlook was incredible and offered a lot of fun climbing. Great for dogs too!
