OMG !! This hike is to pretty and worth it !
My favorite hike I do

Beautiful lake, easy hike for kids. Flat boardwalk. Neat visitors center.

I love this trail. Trail has slight incline most of the way but I think it's a good trail for everyone. Only downside is its a very busy busy trail, it's best to come early to avoid collisions.

super easy trail, great for older folks and little toddler legs

The other reviews don't lie, this is a non-stop uphill battle from the start all the way to the lake. the trail is very shaded in the early morning but not very shaded in the afternoon. takes lots of water or a purifier to replenish. totally worth all the pain though!

A fun little nature walk with our 2 year old. We actually didn't walk around the whole thing this time. Instead we decided to do the Lake Solitude hike to test out our little guy. He did wonderful on both this walk and the hike.

Good hike with lots of shade. Unfortunately, there are no signs so we ended up on Indian trail. We backtracked and finally took the saw mill route. Had to bushwhacked but did not make it to the end - it got very muddy and we saw fresh moose tracks. Ended up hiking 5.2 miles round trip.

Short steep hike with a very scenic view at the end . Not one of my favorites mainly because the lack of forest.

Always a great, quick hike. Hot hot hot so bring water.

beautiful lake, beautiful trail. it is steep and quitr demanding. I was breaking in a new backpacking pack and had a lot of unnecessary weight, so that was a huge factor. I think that if I'd done it with half the weight, it wouldn't have felt so hard. we were stopped by a big bull moose on the trail, and the trail is popular enough our group went from two to almost twenty whole we waited for him to move away. he took his sweet time and we sat around for about 20 to 30 minutes. :) i

It was a good trail and a great workout. I definitely recommend it, but not for kids under 12. we saw lots of kids who pooped out before the end (or less than a mile into the trail) and were riding piggy back. Also, bring plentu of water. it is shaded in the morning, but it was hot with minimal shade in the afternoon. It's "hard" for a reason. don't punish your kids or yourself.

Easy, Fun..great for everyone and great for an easy walk. Saw some cute squirrels and a few deer.

Quick & Stroller friendly. We saw baby squirrels and chipmunks on the trail as well as rainbow trout in the lake.

great for the dogs. Best to do in the morning or evening because it is very exposed.

Bring water and something to snack on at the lake. Amazing views of the great salt lake from several areas. Wear good shoes there are a lot of rocks to scurry over on the trail all throughout the hike.

great hike with a great view of the valley.

Great for little kids! Easy surfaces, mostly flat, and plenty of Marsh, forest, and shallow lake to see.

Great hike, though the smoke dampened the experience. Make sure to not stop at the first lake. There is no one at the other two if you go right as soon as you hit Lake Blanche and go to Lillian and Florence. Worth the extra mile or so. Wife and I (46 yrs old each)are in pretty good shape and are runners. We did the ascent in 1:34 and descent in 1:23, so if you are in good shape, you can comfortably do this pretty quickly and enjoyably. Would not be small child friendly IMO.

Gets your calves burning. Great for dog, please don’t bring your non-dog friendly dogs though and let them off leash. Please just be considerate of people with dogs on leash just trying to get one with nature.

A difficult trail but worth it! The view is amazing. Try to go early in the day if the weather is warm because a large portion of the trail is unshaded.

Muy bueno para empezar senderismo

Loved this hike. It was pretty easy at the beginning. I did the first mile in under 30mins. Then it just got progressively harder. There were rocky sections off and on, which makes for a tough trail. It took me about 2 hours and 10 mins to get to the first lake and about an hour and 30 mins to hike back down. I clocked it as 3.7 miles from the parking lot bathrooms all the way up to where you see lake Blanche. It’s 4 miles if you make your way to the third lake.
I saw a deer, but sadly no moose. I brought bug spray, but never used it. I think if you are there early in the morning or in the evening you would probably need it, but late morning through the afternoon you should be fine without. I would consider the trail fairly exposed, depending on the time of day you go. I was in full sun most of the way down, which was around 2/3pm.
Have fun out there!!

We loved this hike. Started 6:30 am and had plenty of shade on the way up. We stayed exploring around the lakes for a couple hours and there was a lot more sun on the way down but lots of shaded areas still. Beautiful views at the top. Only a few hikers on the way up but passed by several who were headed up on our way down.

Great trail. Pretty stacked with mountain bikers.

This was a beautiful hike. There was always a beautiful view to look at. I left at 7:30 in the morning. There were only six hikers that I counted. But on my way back around noon there was constantly someone coming up the trail, making it difficult to get down in some spots. This trail is very heavily trafficked during mid day. I also do not consider this trail difficult. The last mile is the hardest but totally doable. Going down was much harder on me than going up. I brought up 2 L of water and one water bottle. I didn’t go through all of my water but it was close. I did spend a good 2.5 hours exploring the area once I hit the lake. It is quite warm on the trail in the mid day so bring lots of water. Totally worth it!

We started early in the morning and was a great start to our day! Great view of city. The smoky haze made the Great Salt Lake barely visible. The couch was comfy ;o)

The Trailhead was difficult for me to find. I went on 2 wrong routes the first two attempts, but finally conquered Mt. Ogden on the 3rd! Beautiful Views!

I think this hike is beautiful. The beginning is moderate and then near the end it gets harder. I took a lot of breaks on the way up which is needed in this hot weather! Overall I enjoyed myself and enjoyed the views from the top. I did end up losing a green hammock on the way down and would love if someone found it if they could return it to me! Contact me at 8012450346 if you found it.

When the trail meets a giant mound of rocks, we found out the hard way you don’t have to scramble across. You just climb up a few feet to your right and the trail picks up on your right for a little switchback. This trail is hard on knees and ankles and much longer than it says, especially if you hike up a little over the rocks to the other two lakes and to a lookout, which you have to do if you’re up there- that was the best part for me.
