Steep first .4 miles. Fairly nice walk around the lake. Some snow on north facing trials. Overall a very pleasant hike.

Very steep. Went a few days ago and is currently covered in snow and some ice. This hike is basically you climbing the entire time until you reach the lake and then climbing back down. Would not recommend toddlers due to steep stairs and ice. The lake was semi frozen but still beautiful. Gave my thighs a workout for sure.

We really enjoyed this hike! Brought our little guy along:)

This is the steeper but shorter trailhead. It’s less popular so I have found it easier to get parking.

Pretty easy. Awesome that they would build such a fancy bridge for the BST

Took my 5y/o, 3 y/o and packed my 1 y/o on my back and they all LOVED it! Incredible views, really cool rocks (which is important when you’re a kid), and the perfect distance for kiddos. We will DEFINITELY do this one again!

The sweetest biking trail. Loved the suspension bridge. Beautifl area for seeing nature as you ride, walk or run.

As a beginner I had to pause a lot but it was well worth it in the end. Bridge is a bit wobbly but it wasn't scary.

Brought my dog up here today and it was beautiful! Only saw a couple people and a few bikers. There was no snow but it is supposed to snow tonight so there will probably be a couple inches tomorrow.

Great hike! The first part is switchbacks up the trail. The bridge is wobbly when walking across, but fun!

Relatively easy trail to do. The bridge and the views are awesome. Take Ralphs Trail back down to give yourself a different hike back to Orsen Wells Trailhead.

Great hike, close to the city but quiet enough to be enjoyable. If you keep going a little ways past the bridge the trail passes through a small boulder cave which is kinda neat.

from the orson trail, go up the boneville shoreline trail, when that trail splits go left (toward cherry lodge) but don't go up cherry lodge, keep going and you'll get to the bridge and the bear canyon trail (the restrooms are well kept with soap and seat covers)

Great hike! Did it with our 5 month old and dog. It was slightly more difficult than I anticipated due to the elevation gain.

This was a fun trail with a variety of scenery. Mountains, trees, snow, ice, water. I loved it coming from Phoenix where we don't have a lot other than sand and rock. Not marked but easy to follow with the app. There are a ton of side trails.

I went in from the south but the ending point was amazing.

This is a great family hike! It wasn’t too long and the bridge/view was awesome.

Great hike with the kiddos! Not too long or too hard for them, and super pretty with the mountains flanking you in the east and the greater Salt Lake valley visible to the west. Loved it!

I made it till the lake , next summer will hike till the waterfalls. I started from trailhead at waswatch and it was steep when coming back down. It was easy going up .

Fun little walk on a paved trail at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. We read all the signs and enjoyed the beauty of our surroundings, imagining our ancestors quarrying rock for the temple. Start at the trailhead at the very beginning (west side) of the parking lot.

This is a nice paved path for a walk with the kids. Not really a hike but if your looking for a little incline during your run, this would be a good place for it. The trailhead has parking in the neighborhood or a 1/4 mile up is some parking by a playground. The top of the trail doesn’t really have any parking.

Fun little hike to the bridge! Typical Utah trail and going up for the first part but then flattens out. The pup had fun too!

Did this one in the summer, but I think it was even better in the Fall with the patchwork of autumn colors worked into the view. We played on the suspension bridge then took the trail right before the bridge to head deeper into the canyon. The Old Pine Bridge is quaint and the creek is gorgeous. I read there is a cave nearby, but we couldn't find it.

Quick and easy!

Relatively quick hike to get away. late October the reservoir is pretty barren.

Great easy family hike.

A fun hike! The bridge was awesome! On our way back down, a guy told us there is a cave just north of the bridge. I wish I had known that before. My boys would have loved that.

Easy and beautiful hike for the kids. my five year old started to tire out on the way back down.

Fun, easy, family friendly hike.

Suspension bridge is exciting to walk across ... it has wood planks, sways in the wind and bounces when you walk on it.
