Great hike. The trail can be a little confusing but you should not get lost. We saw a moose.

The trail on the back side of Tibble Fork is no longer a nice hike. The old trail is gone or only partly there.

Great hike but very crowded and a lot of dogs (poop).

Smooth ride, very straight and level for the most part. hooks up with legacy trail for a little while in Farmington, then splits apart in Centerville. Scenery varies from city, to suburbs, to ranches and farms and back again. lots of streets to cross which slows you down a bit. very well kept!

Watching the sunset here was magical. Very few people in the evening which was surprising. Seeing all the stars at night and hiking back was amazing. We even got a glimpse of the Milky Way

Beautiful hike!

Beautiful trail leading to beautiful falls! This is a good choice for kids and inexperienced hikers.

Very nice trail with shade most of the time.

Delightful hike through the aspen trees.

Go at sunset and watch the sunset with the Corona Arch right in front of you!

amazing trail, moderately trafficked but not too bad, the landscape and veiws/forests are beautiful, no complaints!

Favorite hike ever

Incredible trail you get back in the thick of things cross the river several times and if you like to get away from things this is a great trail. A lot of up and down and steep in places but so worth it.

great hike, just don't do in the heat of the day. please note, no shade and not advisable for dogs in the heat. rock gets very hot. enjoy

Went yesterday in beautiful weather. $6 after Alta resort to drive to the top, but worth it. Also worth it to park at the Albion Basin Campground instead of the Catherine's Pass lot. After Cecret Lake, a tiny section of the service road is blocked and under construction, but don't give up, just follow the lift up the hill. It took us 1.5 hours from parking lot to Sugarloaf peak, but with plenty of rest stops. It took us about 1.5 to get down too, but that's because the hill down the peak on the loop is very steep, but still recommended over going back the way you came because it has switch-backs and isn't as rocky as the way up. It also took us longer because at the bottom of the hill we went right instead of staying left closer to the lake, and that put us back a twenty minute detour. All things considered, you could get up there after breakfast and be done for lunch, but I'd recommend snacks. So beautiful!!!

Great dog trail. But watch out for poison ivy.

I’ve lived in N Salt Lake on the east bench for 3 years and this is the first crack at this trail. You should probably read the reviews before you set out on this one. It’s a relatively challenging hike at times but offers a lot of stream access and not too difficult for the first mile. Apparently the end (what I believe was the common end) is right around the clear cut area which is just under 3 miles in. I pressed on for another quarter mile and at that point there were several jogs that were completely overgrown. It was kinda cool to push through thick brush and also added to the challenge. It got late in the afternoon and I turned around but will return and press on because there’s got to be more of a payoff than that clear cut area.

Great dog trail

I absolutely loved this trail. It’s definitely not an easy hike as you gain over 1,000ft in elevation each mile but it is so worth the effort. You will hike beside a river speckled with waterfalls, through aspen groves, and into gorgeous meadows.
My GPS tracker a little over 6.5 miles rt but I did some exploring at the top.
Keep your eye out for moose. I saw a few as well as a few groups of deer.
I got on the trail by 7am and had zero issues with sun or temperature as more than the majority of the hike was covered by shade. I hiked on a Tuesday and only saw one other hiker on the trail. Had the final meadow to myself for over an hour. Complete solitude.
I can’t wait to come back in the fall when the aspens are changing.

This was a good hike! Not too steep not too difficult! Gorgeous views and we saw a moose right next to the trail.

So trail was fun, not very well defined itself but had enough cairns, signs, and reflective tape hidden in shrubs to make it doable (in the sunlight). Consider myself a somewhat experienced hiker and I lost the trail multiple times, especially at the ladder - turn around immediately! Wandered around the little valley there until I realized the trail continued right where you step down from the ladder. With all this said, make sure you check your directions. Don’t know if it was alltrails or google maps that messed up but I definitely shoulda double checked...originally had me driving up a 4 wheeling road at Onion Creek for 15 miles in my Jetta....did a decent amount before I turned around and just thought I wasn’t making it to the trailhead. When I got service again briefly I realized there was an actual Fisher Towers campsite and trailhead. Headed over and started almost two hours later than I wanted (with it only being 2.2 mi to the turnaround I thought I was ok), resulting in me being 1.75 miles out in pitch black before realizing my foolishness. Longest, scariest return even with a headlamp and a small flashlight. Moral: don’t trust computers and don’t overestimate your abilities. Still an exhilarating drive and a fun, mentally and physically challenging trail.

beautiful hike all the way through and the prize at the end the waterfall perfect.

Nice little hike. There are more wildflowers and clearer lakes on the south side of the canyon, though.

Great for kids and the whole fam.

I agree with Chris, this is more of a moderate trail. By the end my friend and I were very sore. The pain was well worth seeing the falls. Take lots of water!

A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

fun destination hike with a great payoff. falls were amazing. most of the trail is fairly ez, but there are a couple of steep sections.
took the whole family, my 9 year old struggled just a bit.
took 2 hours.
GPS had it at 4.3 miles.

Great trail. It's well covered and stays pretty cool. The slightly steeper parts are well staggered, good exercise but not too difficult. Very beautiful location.
