We brought snowshoes to go up and sledged back down. It's a fun, easy trail! It's also packed enough to not need snowshoes.
really pretty winter hiking
Did this in October with my dog we both had good time, took side trail through ice box canyon trail to make it little longer but only one of us likes too get in the water every chance she gets really peaceful out there wouldn't think your so close to town
This is a great trail for a nice, easy to moderate hike. It was very populated, but still fairly easy to navigate. Trail is marked well, however, we did take a "wrong" turn at a fork and ended up shortening our hike by about 2 miles. That was a little disappointing, but it was still a great hike with gorgeous views. My favorite parts were when the trail ran alongside of the river. Such a beautiful sound and serene setting! Would definitely do again if we are ever back in Utah!
Get there early for parking, which you can do up by road or down near trail head. Moderate incline going up, nothing hard. Beautiful sights, plenty of trees and shade. There is a bathroom at the top where the trail meets old Snow Basin road. And another trail head in parking lot at top takes you on to Ice Box to loop around.
The path is fairly rocky, so be care yo with steps while taking in scenery ;)
Very scenic trail. Very rocky and sometimes narrow. A great trail for both the amateur hiker or experienced hiker.
great hike! went for the loop around icebox canyon, which id highly recommend
great simple trail. saw moose last week.
