This is a cool trail with some neat views. I didn't go the whole 9 miles because I didn't bring enough water and in August it was pretty hot and unshaded (so bring water and a hat!!) I didn't see another person on the trail the whole morning!

This is a close trail to get away or test some of your vehicles capabilities. It I'd also a great way to show off one of our state's economic industries. Trails rate from easy to medium.

Its a nice hike. Plenty of shade, it gets open and rocky in the end. Lake is beautiful but we expected more.

Its a pretty drive I take often since I don't like to fight traffic and its close to home. I have always liked this local canyon, some are too scared to drive over it because of the sheer drop off and small road. There are some geocaches up her too.

This is a pretty drive. A bit scary, just because of how high it is and the dropoff. But once you get up there and look at the biggest open mine pit, it is truly amazing, you can see the salt lake valley, its beautiful.

Came from Herriman up Butterfield canyon went to the mine overlook and came back down Middle Canyon. This was oct 18 and was at dusk so we had alright lighting and was a pretty drive, but after a few snow covered switchbacks (requiring zero skill and offering no challenge) we hit pavement after a mile. We turned around and went home thru Butterfield.
Not impressed and wouldn't recommend. Even the mine overlook was fairly disappointing.
Going to the top of Farmington canyon required more effort and the benefit far surpassed the views on this trail, an the views of the Great Salt lake far surpassed the view of the south part of the salt lake valley and tooele valley... If you could see past the smog. We won't be going back.

The trail marker on all trails is on the wrong peak. Go to the Tooele county site for better directions. http://www.tooelecountytrails.com/

4wd is not required, at least not in late July. It's a gravel ROAD. So if you're expecting some off-roading you'll be disappointed. But it has nice views.

This Short off road trail takes you into the Oquirrh Mountains, and is a nice autumn drive. From the overlook, you can see most of the Utah Valley, including the Kennecott Mine. Four wheel drive required.
