Beautiful hike in and fun hot springs. Avoid on the weekends as it’s super packed

Great views and nature, not too crowded so that is always a bonus.

I will never do this hike again. Both times there were so many bugs, and gnats you can't keep off. We were bleeding all over from them. The views, volcanic arc rocks left behind and cap carbonates are something to experience, but only once.

When I was younger I loved this hike, however, be prepared to have a lot of people around you.

Beautiful trail. Be warned, don’t wear shorts.

Wouldn't recommend during the heat of the day

Don't let the elevation gain fool you. Although it is only a 636 ft gain, you at least double it with the constant up and down. Great hike as well as beautiful drive to the trail head. We must have been between groups because we passed many on their way out and were the only ones at the spring for about 10 min. before several others arrived. Temperature of the water out of the falls portion was 115-120 per another hiker that brought a thermometer. Too hot to stay in it for mid day, but would be perfect for early morning or late evening.

Great hike! At a quick pace it will take about 2 hours to complete.

Good hike if you dont have time to drive far from town. The beginning is fairly easy and mid way the trail gets very rocky. I'm not sure if there is a real waterfall earlier in the year, but today, its was more of a trickle with a mist. The shade was nice in the July heat though :)

Steady incline and amazing views of Pineview. Make sure to bring lots of water for you and your fur friend as there is no creeks or springs. This will be fun to snowshoe too!

This would definitely be a 5 star, but the hike and hot springs are overly popular now. Beautiful at sunset and fun at night with lanterns and some good music.

my husband and I arrived around 8:45 am this morning to hike this trial. it must’ve been a good day to go, because there really weren’t many people on the way up or down! the hike up was really nice since it was still early, the temperatures were perfect! we didn’t stop much, so we arrived at the hot springs a little over an hour. the hot pools were smelly, but beautiful, the water was super blue! my only complaint was that one of the only people up there at the same time as us was a middle aged man, all alone, ass naked wallowing in the pool with the double waterfall. I expected to see some naked teenagers, but seeing this guy was actually pretty creepy, we didn’t appreciate that he kept standing up and exposing himself either. it was much hotter on the way down but it took only 45 minutes or so, it’s a really good hike for all skills levels with a great reward!

my son took me on this hike. It was a work out for me but I really enjoyed the scenery.

Fun hike! A great workout and fairly steep most of the way. The trail was busy on a Saturday morning so watch where you step, lots of dog poop on the trail. Not much water running either.

Only did 9 miles of it. I was pressed for time. Saw bobcat paw prints. Get up the switch backs quick, limited shade.

on Malan's Peak Trail

There is quite a dense network of trails in this area, especially at the bottom of the canyon, and it looks like you could do this in a couple of different ways. Parts of this trail are included in at least 3 other trail entries on AllTrails. I just started at the end of 27th street and followed the signs for the north side of Taylor Canyon, and then took the signed turn to Malan Peak. After you take that turn, it is as others have said, relentlessly steep uphill. You can pretty much get the idea from the benchmark lines on the map. I guess the thing is to go slow and maintain a cheery disposition. Almost no water in the creek, no snakes and very few bugs this early Sunday morning. After reaching the peak I went another .5 miles into Malan Basin, which was nice and a bit cooler, but I guess I turned around just short of reaching the old resort.

From the map it looks like you could do this as a loop using the Beus Canyon Trail, but other reviews warn that this is very difficult and requires bushwhacking. It's not clear if this refers to hooking up with Beus Canyon, Waterfall Canyon or Mount Ogden trails. I don't think I would ever have the energy for the option of winding all the way up to the top of Mount Ogden from this trail, especially when you can take a gondola most of the way up from Snowbasin.

Love this hike! It’s probably in my top top 3 in Ogden ❤️ it’s definitely a steep climb but the climb is worth the view!

We went mid July on a Sunday at 7 am. And very much worth it. The parking is insanely limited, so arrive early.

The hike was great! Not too difficult or easy.

The Hot Springs do have a smell, but that’s expected. We did come across a ton of trash, including half a watermelon, that we packed out of there. Otherwise, I’ll absolutely be back!!

Love this hike! Very steep! But the full hike is 7 miles not 4.4 ...

nice trail but almost dead, because of mother nature is closing the trail...

Made it out in mid June it was really nice, hike takes you along the Duchesne for a majority of the time so there’s almost always fresh water available

Hiked this mid July and started around noon. Start of trail you are more exposed. Then shade for majority of trail. With a 1 and 2y/o we took our time due to heat. Scenery beautiful and would have appreciated a few more signs.

The water was really stinky like rotten eggs. It kinda made the hike not enjoyable. I might have gone at the wrong time of the year. I’ll have to come back in spring

Nice views on top watch out for snakes

This is a favorite hike for our family. The waterfall is impressive. Try it in the winter if you haven’t! It’s a good workout and a fair climb but my young kids have all been able to do it.

Beautiful hike! If you go in the morning you can avoid the afternoon/weekend rush, as well as the heat. The trail has plenty of shade half way up.
