This was beautiful. Even if you only go to the lower meadow (about 1.6 miles in) I would still consider this a hard hike. It's very steep at some parts and only levels out a few times. Had to take a few breaks. We went a bit farther and it only got steeper....so we turned around as we could not see an end to the uphill.
This trail is also very well used by skiers and snowboarders, so be aware and watch out. Some places along the trail give you very little room to move over.

I love this hike. I did it once last summer and again a week ago and I have to say that I think I prefer it in the winter. You have to start by hiking up some of the ski slopes at Brighton, so watch out for all the people coming down. It also gets fairly steep, but it's not long before you are off the slopes and it levels out a bit. You will get some of the most beautiful snowy views of the mountains up at the top. I could have spent all day staring at those mountains. Love!!!

Short, easy though a little steep. Very nice view of the salt lake city!

love this place such a good hike!!

One of my favorites. Saw my first moose here. Usually pretty peaceful. Great hike/ snowshoe to take visitors on that are not used to it.

Love it. Big bang for the buck. Not too crowded except in winter when skiers traverse it.

Fun hike! Great view

a nice good hike and it's got a great view of Parleys canyon

The trail is mostly clear of snow now, but there is still a lot of deep mud. Once I got off the main trail I didn't really see too many people. It was a great way to spend Presidents' Day!

Fantastic. Still hard pack so bring spikes. Can't wait to see the lake in the spring!
