We hiked this trail on September 5th and it was a beautiful fall hike. The trail was mostly dirt and it varied between loose and hard packed on the hike up. The lake was very pretty and we saw a mother moose with two calves drinking from the lake. While the trail doesn't have an official end to it, the views on the way up were amazing and I look forward to hiking this trail again.

Fun Little Trail! Easy enough for everyone and very quaint with apple orchards, historic venues, and various stunning vegetation; not to mention the stream the trail follows for a bit. My little 10 week pup had a blast! Trash receptacles + Dog Waste Bags available. Definitely recommend for families and small dogs!

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.

My husband and I completed this hike with our Scout dog on September 29. This is a nice, gently graded, easy-to-follow trail with some nice views. My only complaint is that there wasn't an official "end" to the trail. The trail itself kept going, but the app said that we had made it to the turn-around point.

Other than that, it was a nice trail and the perfect day for hiking. We even saw a moose near the lake.

Beautiful fall hike. Horses definitely present on the trail, as well as mountain bikes. Be careful if you’re hiking and kids are mountain biking - some curves don’t allow for much sight of pedestrians/bikes.

Great views!

Beautiful trail! Well managed. Perfect for families. I took a 3 yr old and 1 yr old in a backpack, it was perfect for us.

Loved the red of the changing oak leaves and the bright yellow of the Aspens. There were lots of bikers but they were all kind and courteous.

Fun! Great for kiddos. We got to eat some apples too!

Great trail for a quick hike and great view.

My favorite trail in Davis County. Be forewarned, it deserves its “Hard” ranking. Also, I have seen plenty of rattlesnakes so watch your dog very closely.

Had an awesome trip. They were having a mountain bike race up Snowbasin, but we talked to a few couples walking out of the trail that said the race was on the other side of the pond, so we just took a quick trip to the pond and back. Had all four children with us (8,4,3,5weeks) so it was a good first time out. We’ll be back to hike the whole thing soon enough.

Nice trail , however not a easy one . Long walk on the road following gps . Easy to Moderate trail . About 2 1/2 hour for the whole loop , starting from the parking lot in town . The view from the top was worth the hike .

This is a good hike. Although there is little to no shade and quite hot. Bring water!

Great trail, locals and routine hikers know of an abandoned mine shaft to explore off the trail

Obviously an easy hike. Didn’t do it though. Must park in parking lot and there is a $7 fee.

If you go soon after this is posted, BEWARE and read on.
Great hike, especially for kids. One problem. We went yesterday, hiked up to the pond. We walked around the pond, which it seems like few do. The little trail is somewhat overgrown. We stumbled onto a ground nest of hornets right in the middle of the trail and they swarmed. Whole family got stung several times. As you walk up to the pond, the nest is along the right side (west). If you stay on the other side, I'm sure you'll be fine. It wasn't until we walked right up on it that we had trouble. They chased us for several hundred yards back down the trail. We passed a couple that was heading up, told them about it and they decided to go up anyway and got stung as well. Otherwise, this was a great hike — perfect for young children. Not too far, not too strenuous. Just right. That being said, I don't think I'll be able to get the kids to come back to it. Good story for them to tell though. Builds character.

Beautiful hike for the family. No restrooms but there is a nice pond at the picnic area. Only a couple miles away from the Snowbasin Resort!

The trail is well marked easy hike however beware of the wasps that hang out by the pond!!

Nice walk from the Visitor Center (trailhead) to the beautiful Huber Homestead and orchards. We had an 8, 7, and 3 year old hobbit with us and they did it just fine without too much grumbling.

Great shaded hike. Kid friendly and easy for all.

This was a really pretty trail, however it is not well marked. In order to actually see the pond, you need to go to the “Picnic Area”. There, you will see a nice view of the pond. If you go past that sign, you won’t really see the pond. It does lead to the ski trails which were pretty neat.

Nice views of the valley.

The views of the Wasatch are a nice perk but I dislike this trail system A LOT.
1. There is no shade.
2. The trail is made of wood chips.
I set out to do a trail run but only went in a mile and turned around. If you want to run here, I suggest a light weight pair of gaiters to keep the wood chips out of your shoes.
It runs along the back of a neighborhood. Nice part of town. If it had a few more trees and a different make up (like gravel), I would like it much more.
Watch out for the horses and their poop.
Did on a Sunday morning. Saw a bout 10 people on foot and 6 or 7 on horse back.

Beautiful trail!

Great trail. Amazing views, but hard. The switchbacks near the top are overgrown, so the tail goes straight up.

I did a trail run from the parking lot of Bair Canyon to the radio towers. It was just over 4miles (by my garmin watch) to the top of the canyon and another .75 -1 mile to the towers once on top. After about 1.5-2 miles up (past the 2nd creek crossing) this trail gets very steep and doesn’t let up. The brush grows over the trail a good portion until you are above the tree line. Gorgeous once you are on top, especially early in the morning. There are maybe 3 or 4 spots for a single tent the whole way up. I saw two or three fire pits.

This trail is family friendly up to the 1st creek crossing and difficult for anyone after the 2nd.

It was about 5,000 vertical feet of gain in 5miles to the radio towers. It took me 3 hrs from top to bottom and 32oz of water wasn’t enough for 7a-10a.

Great workout. Would definitely do it again.

This hike is a great workout for sure. Its shaded most of the way, so that's nice if you want to stay out of the sun. Trailhead parking is limited (and a little hard to find) so make sure to come early.

Hiked this trail with my 10yo & 7yo. Nice and easy little trail. Beautiful scenery, lots of shade and a well marked trail. Had a little picnic at the bench near the end of the trail. Was gone for about 2.5 hours.

Great trail; difficult at sections. Carried a backpack; camped and enjoyed the trail.
