Very nice trail with shade most of the time.

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.

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.

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

great hike with a great view of the valley.

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.

Muy bueno para empezar senderismo

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)

I've been hiking this trail for years and i love it.

My favorite so far! Very nice!

This is an amazing trail. It’s pretty steep but the views when you reach the top are amazing!!!

Just a mile from my hotel, I decided to go and try this hike. Not easy but not impossible! The trail was in good condition and the views from the top are worth the effort! Can’t wait to do this again.

Maybe it’s because I just got home from hiking in the Redwoods but I thought it was an alright hike. Many will disagree, I’m sure. Beautiful view from the top. Really crowded during sunset on a Friday night. No trail signs along the way so it was a bit confusing.

Beautiful lookout.

Great trail that gets narrow at some parts. Nice views of the city at the top.

45 min to the top, we set out around 6:30pm so plenty of shady spots on the trail. Nice view of the city.

Nice little hike for late July. Went right in the middle of the day (3pm) with 99 degree temps but wasn’t over exhausted and got a great workout in.

No one at the top and we spent 20 min there. Only saw a few people on the way down.

Great views of the city!

Best view of SLC you will find.

Not a lot of shade, no clear ending, and some plants grow on the trial. Neat scenery and diverse plant and animal life.

Great trail- narrow in spots- watch for mountain bikers who are coming down- most are careful but i have had some close calls in narrow bends with mnt bikers- yesterday was almost hit by one who came around a blind curve speeding down the trail- they should consider a bell

A nice moderate trail, a little bit steep for some people who aren’t a big hiker but nice view of Salt Lake City when you reach the top. Nice during sunset hikes as well.

Great trail that stays in shade and cover

great trail beautiful view good work out girlfriend was stung by a bee and they are everywhere

Amazing view at The Living Room! A mostly rocky, narrow trail. I was prepared to have a crowded trail, but I was alone except for a few people. Monday morning at 10:30am. I was able to sit in The Living Room alone for a half hour before anyone showed up. No snakes but lots of bumble bees. I was able to stop and rest as needed on the way up. Definitely a moderate trail. Very fun!

Moderate hike with amazing views of downtown Salt Lake City. Will def do again

Loved this trail today! Walked about 1.5 miles up a paved road from Mill Creek Canyon Rd to the trail head - the road goes through the woods and along a creek, and has little traffic. The lower part of the trail continues through the woods, with nice shade for a hot summer day. The upper part starts criss-crossing alpine meadows, more sun-exposed and full of wildflowers at this time of year. Also lots of butterflies all along the trail. The vegetation got dense alongside the trail in the meadows, but not to the point that it was difficult to follow the trail, and I felt fine in shorts despite plants rubbing against my legs. Also quite a few flies but not to the point that I felt motivated to put on bug spray. The trail meets up with the Destination Trail, so a loop is possible (would need to walk a mile back up Mill Creek Canyon Rd to the Porter Fork Trail if hiking down Destination). Looks like a loop would also be possible with Bowman Fork Trail. On the trail part of Porter Fork, on the way up (starting at 10:30 am) crossed paths with a man and his dog, and a group of four people (they told me I was the first person they had seen), and on the way down crossed paths with a couple and their dog, so very lightly trafficked even on a summer Sunday.

Decent hike to get you in shape for others. I personally enter the path through the scrub oak at the upper saddle and continue to wire mountain.

South trail was nice and fairly comfortable to get out of the 102 degree weather. There is a lot of wasps on the trail and a few snakes. was a bit disappointed in the falls but I'd still do this trail again as it was shaded a lot be and it follows the creek the whole way so no problem with a water source.

An intermediate hike that's in a great location with great views. I love bringing out of town guests and my dog here, but watch out for snakes.
