Fun trail. Ice underneath the snow. Needed cleats. The trail above the bridge was a little dice. Made for a little adventure

Great day hike trail in the winter. Lots of cute pups along the way and a great payoff at the end. A bit slippery coming back - Would rec bringing spikes, yak trax, poles or snow shoes if you have them. Still doable if you don’t!

Nothing short of amazing. I have done this hike four times this year but the winter brings a whole new beauty to this hike. Waterfall is mostly frozen. Beautiful take your camera.

Lots of switchback at the beginning. Gradual climb to Elephant Rock. Trail well packed from heavy used. Didn't need to use snowshoes or chains

One of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked!! Love the river that’s right next to you and the scenery is amazing!! Definitely a must do!!

Great hike! The trail is fully covered with snow once you get back into the canyon, crampons would be ideal, I was fine in my normal hiking boots, with some sliding in places. Waterfall is mostly frozen over, but still beautiful!

So beautiful in the winter. Only 1 spot with a little ice. Perfect winter hike!

Nice little offshoot from Frary Peak Trail. Hiked 12/3 after hard snow previous day. Had no problem with regular hiking boots.

Beautiful hike at the end of November (11/30/18). Heavy snow kept us from attempting the last quarter mile but I was playing it safe with my girlfriend. It's doable but slick. Really enjoyed the canopied hiking and rushing creek.

Beautiful hike, shaded in the summer, open to the sun in some spots in winter.
Small bits of the path are icy/slushy right now, but most of it is nice fluffy fresh snow. Took about 3 hours up and back.

Nice moderate trail with some switchbacks to get up to the rock. Some benches have been put up at the top, which makes for a nice place to stop and rest. The trail is especially breathtaking in the fall. Accessible all year long. The trail is also really fun in the winter with the snow. Lots of people hike and bike the trail though, so watch out for bikers!

Did 9 miles of this trail today and then the steepness and the snow forced me to quit. Snowshoes rather than microspikes are needed for the last 2 miles. Gorgeous day for hiking though!

I loved this hike. It’s almost deserted on a Sunday morning while the trails nearer the White Rocks area got crowded. A real gem and not to strenuous despite the distance you’ll put in.

absolutely gorgeous. after a set of switch backs, you follow a stream all the way up to the falls which offers a nice tranquil sound for the entire hike. You also see some amazing views of the mountains throughout. The hike is fairly challenging in a few places! younger children probably wouldn't be the best to bring here, but older kids would be okay. One of the best hikes I've done!

Amazing views all the way up. Missed peak fall by a week. Trail wasn’t marked very well but it looked like all variations lead to the same point. Phone was at 1% couldn’t record down.

I’ve gotta say it, this trail is terrible. I’m new to the area and decided to try it based on all the good reviews. I parked at Farmington Pond and started the trail from there. Within a half mile or so there were so many forks and side trails, with no signs, that I never knew if I was on the right one. I followed one trail when it forked and had to back track when I saw it was headed north. I took the less obvious trail that followed the creek (thought that was a good clue) and that was very steep, very narrow and very hard to stay on. There were parts where the trail had been swept away from rock slides. After about 1.5 miles I could see it wasn’t improving and I turned around. Some locals told me I was on the right trail but I would not recommend this to anyone. Park up on the road and take the Farmington Canyon trail instead.

I loved the trail. It was lightly trafficked mostly with hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Got some amazing views from the top and also experienced the snowfall on my way up.

Beautiful trail that goes up and up and up and up. I finally made it to the rocky observation point out of the woods and turned back there.

I love this trail. I love that dogs can use the trail too. Today, however, there were three young men on dirt bikes. That was not pleasant for so many reasons. This is the first time I’ve encountered dirt bikes and I hope it’s the last.

My favorite trail so far for Autumn colors, I went with my friend on Sunday. Very friendly trail as well enjoyed seeing everyone out with their dogs and children. Everyone greeted one another and said good morning.

Fantastic trail, my first in the SLC area! I went there for a hike at 5pm and found it plenty busy with local joggers, bikers, and hikers, so don't go here for an isolated experience. Still, the amazing views, great plant variety, and Mill Creek right at the start make it easy to enjoy regardless of traffic. Most of the time there is ample room to let bikers past, but later on in the route it gets skinny, so be cautious and aware of your footing when you step aside for others.

I'm a 27 y/o male, and was able to go about 2 miles in an hour. I unfortunately had to turn back then due to approaching sunset, but even without reaching the rock (which you will see long before you get there), there are some spectacular scenes, especially at "The Boulders", about 1.6 miles in on this map.

What a great hike! We saw 5 wrecked cars along the way. (One was just a chassis) The colors were beautiful. The kids loved it. Waterfalls, rocks to climb and wonderful scenery!

Hiking up to Elephant Rock in Mueller Park was a beautiful hike all the way up. It is about 3.5 miles up. The hike does seem a little longer than normal (a causal uphill trail with a few switchbacks). I highly recommend to bring at least 1.5 liters of water and a snack with you. Also, bring a camera the views are spectacular!
The trail was busy with hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers. So be aware of your surroundings and go on the hike early if you want to avoid traffic.

Beautiful creekside trail especially in the fall. It is moderately challenging if you are not in shape. I personally love this hike and repeat it quite often.

People complaining about there being too much dog crap should probably stick to trails where they aren't allowed. You can find these in watersheds, like the cottonwood canyons!

This trail is beautiful, a quick escape. Bikers are common, but so are hikers, so everyone stays aware of each other. Would recommend - ESPECIALLY in fall. :)

It was beautiful the fall colors are peak!

Nice hike

I would mirror Julie Kirby’s comments. Great trail for running, beautiful, but way too many people. Also way too much dog crap on the trail.

Wow! This certainly doesn't get the respect and attention it deserves.


Took the dogs with me and had to rope them off on a tree about 1/3 mile from the Summit as it required some bouldering and scrambling.

I absolutely loved the rolling hills and the views of Salt Lake Valley.

The class 2 scrambling at the end is a nice beginner's challenge to rock climbing.
