Great hike! We went on 9/18 and the trail was still perfectly fine to hike. Some points had snow and were a little slick, especially right in the beginning, but we were just fine in regular hiking shoes. The falls are partially frozen and gorgeous! The trail was not very busy either. We brought our dog, and she had a blast. This trail is rated moderate with some up and down hill, but probably pretty easy for more experienced hikers.

Nice short hike, a bit washed out with some loose rock areas. Views are well worth it!

I did this hike as a prep hike the weekend before I did Mt. Whitney. It was my first time doing it even though I have hiked all over the Wasatch Front. I was amazed at how majestic this hike is from beginning to end. It's a great hike to do in the late fall and early winter because it starts at a relatively low elevation compared to most other hikes near Salt Lake City/Sandy, Utah. As such there was little to no snow on the trail. I did it in about 5.5 hours (around 3 hours up, 2.5 hours down).

On the last quarterish mile scramble to the summit, I got misdirected and started ascending the wrong way. Luckily, a dude set me in the right direction (thanks Stu!) and I got to the summit to take in the preposterous views of Salt Lake Valley. Early on in the hike, it also forks and one prong of that fork goes down the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I walked down that trail for a few hundred meters before I realized my error (thanks to the AllTrails app).

I highly recommend this hike.

As advertised, the first mile is very steep but then mellows out. It took me 1 hr 10 minutes up with some snow on the trail (Nov 17) during the last half mile. It snowed all day and the lake was covered in snow. Definitely will do again earlier in the year.

Loved every second, on the way up at least

Such a beautiful hike! The leaves were just turning colors and there was a lot of shade.

Great hike for all experience levels. When I went, there were plenty of families with kids, trail runners, and pups on the trail. There was no snow or frost when I went.

Difficult on the way down due to slippery gravel. Great view at top! Good hike with 2 eleven year olds.

On a clear day, it is a STUNNING view. Even on a smoky day, it’s still beautiful. It’s a steep hike up and not marked. However, it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s well-traversed enough. You get to this first lookout area that’s flat, which means you’re almost there!

Absolutely beautiful and an easy hike! The water fall is half frozen and stunning. Definitely would recommend!!

Excellent hike this morning. Predawn start to catch the sunrise from the top. Fresh layer of snow 1-2inches. The streams are frozen over enough to support my 200+lbs. Didn’t attempt the lake although it looked pretty thick. Plenty of deer to be seen and some moose tracks.

Loved this hike!

We went right after it rained, so the fall colors were extra pretty! About halfway up we hit some heavy fog which was really cool, and made for a great fall hike! Haha, your pants will get wet from brushing along wet grass if you go after rain

Hike is fun and gives a great view over SLC. You park on the road and walk up. Look for the Yellow sign with numbers as this is the start of the trail - there are no signs for it. TV remote is a nice touch.

Beautiful view! Just like most people describe, this trail delivers a nice short, challenging jaunt.

I've read in other blogs that it is recommended to extend your trip to Mount Wire, a continuation of the Living Room Trail. I also recommend the summit Mount Wire to the old radio tower (breathtaking), but I would say taking the southeast route to the summit FIRST would be much easier (counter clockwise). That stretch is steep with loose rock scree and is difficult coming down. That way you'll have the Living Room to reward yourself with on the descent.

If you're just doing The Living Room, that is great too.

Very beautiful and enjoyable, however there are a lot of different trails and none of them have a marker so you kind of have to figure it out yourself. Good luck.

Just the right amount of everything!

I loved the trail. It was lightly trafficked mostly with hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Got some amazing views from the top and also experienced the snowfall on my way up.

i liked it pretty short so go to red butte and make it a loop!

It is a sweet hike not very long but the beauty is worth it.

Found a sport dog field trainer thing on the trail. find me on Instagram @savethenegs to retrieve it.

I love this trail. I love that dogs can use the trail too. Today, however, there were three young men on dirt bikes. That was not pleasant for so many reasons. This is the first time I’ve encountered dirt bikes and I hope it’s the last.

Great day hike. Beautiful views. Good for dogs.

Spectacular view of the SLC valley! A great Halloween hike!
Dress warm ❄️

Holy crap what a trail!!! Very rewarding and yet hard , not for the fainted heart! Did this hike on Halloween day, you may see snow towards mile 3 once you get to first summit it’s all dried! Lot of people on the trail. Made it to top in 3 hours plus about half hour for breaks and picture takes, coming down was also a little challenging because of the snow that melted and now it was slushy, def hiking poles . Coming down took me 2 hrs.
Layer up as it’s very cold on the scramble area if sun is not out. Happy hiking!

This is a really tough hike in the snow. We went on Sunday 10/28 and from about mile 3 onwards it was all in snow. We'd tried on Thursday and had only got as far as the meadow as the winds were so strong we couldn't even see our own tracks and couldn't find the trail. We managed to summit on Sunday but from the saddle to the hut and back again was very windy and very sketchy. If you've never done this before (which I hadn't), it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. Once over the saddle, the drops are very very steep and, I thought, very very scary. The views, however, are spectacular and the trail was pretty easy to follow. The whole thing took us 10 hours as it was slow going in the snow, so we came out in the dark. Be prepared and stay safe!

This trail is always crowded and just really not worth the hype. You follow an eroded gulch half of the time. Wasps love the rocks at the living room. It’s popular because it’s accessible from town and not very long.

Fantastic trail, my first in the SLC area! I went there for a hike at 5pm and found it plenty busy with local joggers, bikers, and hikers, so don't go here for an isolated experience. Still, the amazing views, great plant variety, and Mill Creek right at the start make it easy to enjoy regardless of traffic. Most of the time there is ample room to let bikers past, but later on in the route it gets skinny, so be cautious and aware of your footing when you step aside for others.

I'm a 27 y/o male, and was able to go about 2 miles in an hour. I unfortunately had to turn back then due to approaching sunset, but even without reaching the rock (which you will see long before you get there), there are some spectacular scenes, especially at "The Boulders", about 1.6 miles in on this map.

I enjoyed this trail! We started up about 7am. The fall leaves were pretty (once it was light enough to see), and there was very little mud. Because it was early on a Monday, we only passed a couple people coming down. While it wasn't so steep that you were rock climbing, it was a steady unbreaking incline up the canyon, and quite tiring for beginners. The "living room" set up at the top was awesome! (whoever brought the remote for the TV is the coolest). The view was gorgeous, with the sun beginning to shine out over the valley.

Went on a Sunday, late October. Many climbers and hikers. Made it to overlook and returned before dark. Lovely hike.
