Very nice trail with gentle incline. Be careful where you park though! They were towing cars at the trailhead for parking in a "fire lane". There is no additional parking on the shoulder of the narrow canyon road allowed, so arrive early. It seems to be a busy trailhead, although there is enough trail that you could still get some quiet time to your self.

So many reviews of hiking but my favorite way to do this trail is on touring cross country skis or a fat bike.It takes a while to do all the switchbacks and traverses but the view is wonderful in the winter time. It is a two bottle trip at a minimum. Sometimes the Powerline trail, which it transects has enough bonus powder down that I can free heel ski with magnum BC bindings. If it is to rough I simply backtrack down.

A great trail for snowshoeing! The east loop is longer than the west loop. Lots of critter tracks in the snow.

My husband and I completed this hike with our friend Erin on November 4.

Be warned: much of this is not a true trail. We kept the app open, trying to stay on the red line, and it basically took us straight up the side of the mountain. At a couple points, we ran into a trail, but it was a lot of straight up climbing.

We didn't make it to James Peak.... we stopped at Cobabe Peak.

Giving this trail three stars because we still had a good experience despite our tracking difficulties. At the top of Cobabe Peak, it snowed (our first of the season!), and the view was beautiful! We could see entire mountain ranges that I didn't even know existed.

Overall we made a pleasant day of it, but couldn't recommend this trail because of how difficult it was to follow!

Enjoyed the work out! Great ride/workout under 1.5 hours.

This is one of my favorite mtb trails. It has a southern exposure which means that on warm sunny days I always fill up the water pack. I have ridden the trail loop clockwise and counterclockwise. I prefer clockwise. I now ride with tubeless tires, but even before I had tubless tires I found the climb to not be as foreboding as it appears from the parking lot. I like to deflate my rear tire so that there is just a touch of give. The first third of the ascent is gradual with good traction. The second third is steeper and exposed with some rocky terrain to impede the climb. The rewards are great views of Snow Basin to the right and after a short ride great views to the west. The final third is less rocky and better traction to the saddle on the the summit.

I like to reinflate my tires back up to 50 psi, drop my seat a bit, and do a quick assessment my bike before the descent. The downhill ride is a hoot! It seems like I'm riding downhill forever. With very few rocks, banked turns, easy switchback turns and long descents. After getting down to the bottom I wanted to do it again. Follow the trail over the bridges traveling clockwise until you hit the gravel path. Make a left to the parking lot. Or hang a right and do it again.

Nice quick hike trail. I had my two dogs but the trail is pretty skinny at some parts so we kept moving out of people's way. Trail is moderately flat for the beginning then goes up a bit then down again. The climb back up isn't terrible and the bottom by the stream is beautiful. Was there a few weeks ago and there was still a solid amount of fish (most alive but some where dead as it's getting to the end of the season). Lots of people at the bottom but you can keep hiking down to find more solitude.

Conquered this loop with my son and sister and n-law and nephew. So much fun..

Beautiful trail with fall colors this time of year. The trail is dirt packed and slightly damp from the cool weather with lots of fall color leaves on the ground. Getting to the overlook is fun with some pretty easy switchbacks, but be sure to keep hiking till you get to the wooden bench and don’t stop early despite the trail map. The views from the overlook are gorgeous with a great mountain view and city scape. The dogs and I had a great hike!

Good hike, nice views. Lots of Fall colors. Moderate hiker traffic and horseback travel.

Trail is a nice trail, packed dirt. Went on 10-5-18, and fall colors are amazing. the view at the end is well worth the hike. stunning overlook views throughout the hike. Took parents who are in their 50s and not acclimated to the elevation and they were able to make it the whole hike (they are in decent shape though). Took us 1.5 hours to get to the top at a slowish pace and 45 minutes to get back down at a quick pace. From car and back, my phone tracked the entire hike at 5.59 miles.

Single wide trail. Definitely moderate. Hard work for young kids.
We missed the Salmon by two weeks. Next year we will make it a priority to be here mid September.
Beautiful colors and spectacular views.

Such a fun and amazing views. The Kokanee salmon were beautiful as well!!

Easy 5 miler that is much more crowded in Autumn. Hiking this one on a Sunday afternoon during peak season for the Kokanee Salmon spawn, we were coming across other hikers on the single track trail every 1-2 minutes, and you have to step aside since the trail isn't wide enough for two people. This appears to be a bike-able single track, but please don't bike it in the fall - there just isn't enough time for people to move out of the way, and bikers aren't able to get out of the way themselves.

The trail is relatively easy. There is an incline at the beginning of both sides of the trail, with a higher section through open meadow at the top. If you hike a few times a year, you should be able to do it without any problems or any breaks. There were numerous children and older folks in poor health on the trail, so it should be accessible for anyone that can walk unassisted.

If you're here to see the Kokanee Salmon spawn, that is a yearly event during September. The times change. I've heard that it is typically in the second week of September. Of the three times I've been, I've seen single fish once, small groups of fish once (this time), and then the third time they were so thick that you couldn't help but step on them if you kayaked in. This visit seemed a bit late, as there were quit a few dead fish near where the stream emptied into the lake.

I love this trail, gorgeous in the fall. It's becoming too popular tho it was a bit crowded comparing 2 years ago. My only complaint would be kids trying to grab and disturb the salmon while they are trying to mate, lay there eggs and being tired from their long swim... please do not allow dogs in the water or letting the kids to play with the salmon. It is illegal to catch them. lets protect what's left.

Pretty busy (likely because of the Salmon). The fall colors are starting to appear too! We ended by cliff jumping into the reservoir; terrifying and amazing!!

We loved this hike! We took our 4 kids ages 9, 6, 5 and 3. They were all able to complete the hike in and get back (although there was definitely grumbling and crying at times) except for the baby. We carried him the whole way. It was beautiful though! And the best part was seeing the Kokanee Salmon Run! We will definitely do this again next year.

Nice hike to see all kinds of nature! The salmon spawning in the stream was amazing to see. Mostly shaded, but narrow and steep most the way.

it was steep on the way back up but not too bad overall I'd say rating is accurate. really crowded and a narrow trail so thats why I gave it 4 instead of 5. it's pretty though! the salmon were really cool to see! go early!

This was a really pleasant hike. Utah has been so dry this year that, unfortunately, it wasn't the most beautiful hike (everything was brown and dead once the early morning light had gone away), but it was still a fun hike. I'd agree with other reviewers: it's not really a difficult hike -- especially not going up Sardine and down Ogden Outlook: if you're looking for a slightly more challenging (but still comfortable) hike, I'd start up Ogden Outlook and then come back down Sardine. I would have liked this hike more if there weren't some aggressive mountain bikers. I don't mind sharing the trail, but I get bothered when mountain bikers go flying around turns too quickly and are acerbic. Most bikers were fine, but there were a few who were too aggressive. We also saw a moose, and we heard a rattlesnake near the top, so do be mindful of wildlife in the area.

Pleasant trail with nice views. Heavily traveled though withs lots of bikers who you constantly need to jump out of the way for.

Fun trail with a nice overlook at the end. Hiked a weekday and very few people out.

For the ogden and surrounding areas this is one of the best trails you can take on for mountain biking or for a shorter hike. A lot of shade, nice views, and smooth singletrack makes for an enjoyable ride. Just watch out for corners and blind spots where some bikers/runners seem to think they always have the right of way

This is part of network of trails and you can do all kinds of different loops, out and backs, or even point to points using different trailheads. You would be wise to have a map. There are at least 2 other AllTrails entries for parts of this network. It 's a nice setting. The trails are used by mountain bikers, so they are all very easy to hike with no super steep parts. In places it is really a road. I started at the trailhead off of Rt 39, right by Pineview Resevoir, as shown here. For some reason, the trailhead looked like a homeless encampment this morning.

Nice hike. Looking forward to doing it again when the smoke has cleared to get some better views. Not hard at all.

Loved this trail! Beautiful views! Most of the trail is easy but there is no place to sit down along the way.

This is a great trail. As has been mentioned in previous reviews there are a lot of mountain bikers but it isn’t to hard to get around each other. The views are incredible we saw a moose pretty early on. We’ll be bringing the kids back in the fall for a family hike.
