Great hike for my family including 3 year old. The app does not take you to the trailhead. It says to park on the left. You actually have to drive up a road to the right a bit to get to the parking lot/bathroom. We hiked about 1000 feet up the trail to the left. It actually goes to a lake but we turned around and drove across the street.

One of my favorite Utah lake hikes!!!!

Hiked this after the last snowfall we had in early October. Make sure and wear snow boots.
Amanda G. on Donut Falls Trail
Easy trail and GREAT for kids. Bring extra socks ;-)
Amanda G. on Lake Catherine (Big Cottonwood)
Lake Martha sits just past lake Mary on your way to lake Catherine! Easy hike from lake Mary to Catherine. Hardly any snow
This trail has everything, from parts that are runable to parts that involved straight-up scrambling, from desert bush to pine trees, from epic vistas to sheltered trail. There is a fair amount of traffic but as someone who often hikes solo, that helped me feel safer. It took me 5 hours and 45 minutes up and back going at a moderate pace. No water along the way. I recommend bringing any water/snacks/cameras/layers in a small pack so your hands can be free for the last 500 feet of rock climbing to the summit. Some guesswork involved in that part. The view is worth the climb! Going back down was a bit rough on the old knees. Overall great sense of accomplishment!
