Nice, relatively short hike close to town that gets you high enough for some good views of the Wasatch to the east and the Salt Lake Valley to the West. Trail conditions today where excellent. Not much ice, mostly packed snow and mud/dirt. Much of the climb is south-facing, so relatively free of snow or ice except for the start and the summit. Deep snow near the top, but the trail was well-packed. Didn't need yak tracks or snow shoes at all. I saw only 2 other people with their dog the whole hike. My two pups and I had the summit to ourselves. We weren't able to get completely above the inversion, but we got close. Blue skies to the east, haze to the west. Great hike for this time of year because the steady climb and constant sunshine (no shade along the trail and mostly south facing) kept us warm.

Gorgeous trail, and best of all dogs are allowed every day!

Super pretty with all the snow. A bit steep. Fun to see people sledding and skiing down!

Awesome hike to bring along the puppers!

:-)

Great views and an exciting way to see the North side of Olympus.

Should have brought my snowshoes, was tempted to explore the ridgeline ...

Another time ...

Hiked it yesterday. Beautiful view, and it was nice to get above the inversion for a little bit. There are some ice spots, I used micro spikes for some parts, but they certainly not necessary.

Love this hike, it’s so close and easy to get to. Parts of it are icy but I was able to manage only with hiking boots 12.11.18

Great hike and stunning beautiful views. Started early morning and saw a family of deer and lots of fresh powdery snow. I wish I had yak tracks and a pair of snow pants but still a blast!

It was a beautiful winter hike! Definitely recommend bringing yak-tracks or crampons for the slicker parts.

Did 9 miles of this trail today and then the steepness and the snow forced me to quit. Snowshoes rather than microspikes are needed for the last 2 miles. Gorgeous day for hiking though!

Didn't go the whole way but had beautiful views and a wide enough path for people to pass. Took my dog and everyone seemed very friendly and welcomed him with pets. Not all the snow melts so make sure you wear good hiking shoes with grip.

No snow up there yet (as of this morning.) Perfect sunrise hike.

I had a great early morning sunrise hike. Pretty chilly this time of year. The hills were perfect for high intensity interval cardio.

Did this hike on 10/28/18. We made it to all three lakes. There was lots of snow, but most of it was packed in so you were not sinking down with every step. Wear proper hiking shoes and gear (we did not bring hiking poles but wish we did!). It was a gorgeous hike! The best part was that we were the only ones at Lake Catherine. I think the snow scared people off! Definitely recommend this hike.

For ADVANCED bikers only, hikers don’t even try!!!

Holy hell. I mostly fell all the way down.
I’ve been up and down Dry Creek several times with no incident. This time, I wanted to try going down Bobsled. There was a guy at the top who was like, “Have you been down this before? Be careful,” before ripping down the trail ahead of me. Ok dude, you wouldn’t have said this if I was a big guy with a fancy bike but whatever...
Except this is HARD!!! I’m a new biker and my bike definitely needs a tune-up. I’ll only do this again if my brakes are at 100% in the future.
The flow was absolutely fantastic, it reminded me of carving while skiing (which I’m much more experienced at) since the trail was very curvy and had a lot of jumps. I truly had no idea mountain biking could be like this. For my hardtail bike with weak brakes combined with my inexperience...I wiped out several times. And once really badly.
I think hikers would be fine up until Bobsled, but don’t even try going up or down Bobsled. It is absolutely a bikers trail and you will be obliterated.
I’d definitely recommend it for my more advanced friends!! I’ll be back in the future with a better bike and a few more rides under my belt.
Also, how did those cars get up there?
ALSO, is this even the Bobsled everybody keeps talking about?? Because this is way more advanced than they made it seem.

It's a nice, moderate hike to do any time of the year. A lot of mountain bikers use this trail. There were a ton of tarantulas and potato bugs out today (10/21), so watch your step.

Trail is definitely uphill the entire way, deserves its ranking. We went last week and it was pretty snowy at the top so it was very muddy and slick. Views were pretty but just okay. Meadow was full of snow.

Did this hike yesterday, or attempted to, anyway. Mary and Martha were absolutely gorgeous, but the trail to Catherine was completely covered in knee deep snow right at the loop. Probably could be done with snowshoes, but we did not have any. Scenery itself was beautiful despite not making it to Catherine. Can be easy to lose the trail in all of that snow.
Regardless, bring poles and/or spikes. Trail was nearly entirely covered in snow/ice.

My dogs love being off leash here!

Beautiful hike! Knee deep snow once you get to Lake Catherine, but so worth it.

I brought my family from out of town on this hike and it was sooooo beautiful. There’s a dirt trail next to a paved one so you have options. 10/10 recommend the dirt trail. Just some challenging parts for the little ones but definitely do-able.

Very easy hike, good for all ages.

Really easy and really pretty. :)

This is a great trail. a small climb up to the Bonneville shoreline trail then it really evens out for a while while meanders the contour of the ancient Lakeshore. I took slightly different track to the point below the peaks and get back up on a trail along the peak face. I like this trail because of the sweeping views of downtown and the valley.

Wow! This certainly doesn't get the respect and attention it deserves.


Took the dogs with me and had to rope them off on a tree about 1/3 mile from the Summit as it required some bouldering and scrambling.

I absolutely loved the rolling hills and the views of Salt Lake Valley.

The class 2 scrambling at the end is a nice beginner's challenge to rock climbing.

:-)

Loved this hike! We live at sea level and did this right after getting off the plane in SLC, so the elevation was a bit tough in the beginning. We took it slow and steady until we felt better and would definitely recommend! It was a little crowded around the first lake, but thinned out a lot after that. Absolutely breathtaking views with a very cool mix of snow and fall foliage. Saw a deer, wood pecker, several chipmunks, and moose poo but sadly no moose. :-)

Went on a Friday morning while vacationing right after the first snowfall. We are from central Florida, and it was worth every lungful of oxygen we struggled to get as we made the climb. One of the best hikes I’ve ever been on.

Went on a weekday after work, after it had rained enough to dampen the trail a little bit. There were only a handful of people on the whole trail, but lots of wildlife...~15 deer and 1 porcupine! The fall colors are still there and the lakes were beautiful.
Steady up and down, no real flat sections.

Great easy trail, make sure to do this one during the golden hour. The hills are beautiful as the sun sets.
