Completed  Map

Went up on the 5th and the snow tracks end at the last half mile of the trail. Had to turn around because I didn't know the trail well enough to figure out the right way and the snow was thigh high. Tough but worth it even if you don't make it to the top. One of my favorite trails in SLC! Beautiful year round and almost the whole hike up.

Short hike with a good view of the valley. A bit steep towards the end.

I love going up the side of the mountain for a good challenge. The trails all seem to lead to the same place but aren't marked. Beautiful view

go to ensign then head east to the upper most radio towers, its a great hike an a great view.

on White Pine Lake Trail

Challenging trail especially in the snow because some areas aren't very packed so you end up knee deep or more. Most people choose the Red Pine Trail over this one because it's a little shorter and a little less steep. This one is more peaceful because there were no other hikers just two skiers. I'll definitely try this one again when everything is thawed out more.

Not a very steep hike! The ruins can only be seen from across a stream, but they were still cool to see. I just wish the trail wasn't next to the road almost the whole way, it somewhat takes away from a true nature experience.

easy trail for sunday afternoon, bring your dogs 3 waste bags stations, no reason to leave anything behind

I did this trail in February and it was cold enough to have gorgeous ice on the falls, but warm enough that the trail was either slushy, or super icy. I was so glad I had my spikes to hike the gorgeous last section that was steeper and so slippery. The trail did not feel stressful at all until I braved walking closer to the falls and then I took it very slow, but it was definitely doable. Here is my blog post if you want to see pictures. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/i-did-this-hike-first-week-in-february.html?m=1

Excellent hike back in time!

on Red Pine Lake Trail

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

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

There's a lot of snow still there and it gets slippery coming back down. But I personally didn't mind. It made more for the adventure!

Really quick hike. Starts through a neighborhood then works up to some stairs and a short climb. Right now you definitely need books if not spikes as there are some iced out steep runs. Good payoff for such a short, accessible spot.

Starts off going through a neighborhood. Went yesterday and it’s still covered in snow and slippery. The hike seemed very short though due to the rapid change of scenery. Kids lived it. Toddler did struggle with snow though.

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

If you want to enjoy the sunset in a quiet place, you have to try it.

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Great views of the city!

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.

I'm sure it's great when there is no snow. There is currently tons of slippery ice and snow! We did it but it was sketchy!

Great city view, try it night time...

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that I did this hike in early September. Went with some friends to hike this on Labor day. Quite possibly the worst day to do so. The parking lot closest to the lake was filled, so we had to park at the ski lodge. We could have taken a shuttle from there to the real trailhead, but the wait was 45min+, so we started our hike from there. Very sunny, hot, and exposed for most of it, so be prepared. Also, there were so many people! This would have been much nicer if the trail wasn't so backed up. Didn't stay long at the lake because of how many others were already there. Other than the heavy traffic, this would have been a nice, short, enjoyable hike.

Loved this trail. Lots of beautiful scenery, and in late July the wildflowers were even more beautiful than the mountains! Ran into a moose sitting in the middle of the trail! It’s a bit of a challenge, but incredibly worth the effort!

took my pups up during a storm, beautiful views, trail easily disappears during thr winter so its easy to get turned around in the evening hours but still a great hike.

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

A lotta bang for your buck on this trail. This is the easier of the two routes to access Bells Canyon. Parking is tight though. There are a couple overflow lots.

Surprisingly delightful along the stream. Did this in early spring to take the long way to Lisa Falls. There’s some historic structures along the route, some have unfortunately been graffitied and trashed

Great hike with amazing views of the Valley. Great workout and worth making it all the way to the top.
