trail locations for Salt Lake City, Utah

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.

The trail is awesome but the distance is wrong round trip is 10 miles anyway great hike we meet a great big Moose on the side of the trail

One of my favorite Utah lake hikes!!!!

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!

Hike is sort of boring but the view at the top is unbeatable.

Awesome sights at the top, some steep climbs but worth it

Great view!

Great views of the hidden canyon and valley from the Butte. Well worth the hike after Living Room.

Five stars for what it is, a near city hike to gorgeous views. The hike itself was three stars. We continued the hike to Red Butte, this added an extra mile up, but we'll worth it for the canyon view on the opposite side.

Did this a few weeks ago when the leaves were still changing. It was such a beautiful hike, saw two moose and the lakes with surrounding view is really worth it!

It was long but pretty easy. My 60 year old mother hiked with me so for sure doable. The Lake was a very beautiful color but I still prefer lake Blanche if you are up for a slightly more challenging hike.

Great view from the top, connects to another trail right before summit. Pretty easy.

visted SLC for a conference & this hike had some amazing views. It was definately a challege because it's straight up but it was short so if you can, I recommend seeing this spot.
