So great for views on a snowy/foggy day! Bring spikes if you’re going to hike it in the winter because the trail is super icy. It’s great for dogs to run around too.

My tip is to treat the trail as an out and back instead of a loop because the second half is basically just a road. When you get to the stream, turn back. Way prettier.

Went after fresh snow. So pretty. Going up with micro spikes was a good idea. We only went .5 mile up as it was getting dark. Hope to go back sometime to finish the trail. Great views!

Nice little hike, busy. Lots of cross country and snow shoes but you don't have to have those as the snow is packed down. Parking is a bit of a nightmare.

Fun to hike with family and friends. A little steep on the way up but overall a chill hike. We were able to access it easy even in the snow because it’s used quite often.

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Started just as it was getting light and watch the sunrise lite up the mountains behind us. The morning light made the mountains look incredable

awesome hike, very few people and amazing scenery.

Great place to walk during the day...view is pretty and the path goes all around the lake.

Hiked part of this trail from the Grandeur Peak trailhead at the Churchill campground on New Years Day. The snowy views were beautiful and with most of the trail in the sun, it was not too cold. No need for snowshoes or spikes, the trail is packed down, only icy in small spots.

Hiked this with a bunch of friends. Each of our GPS/fitness devices said different mileage but we figured it was about 9.5. Be sure you have poles and spikes since there are some parts where it’s slick! Heads up - We ran into a dead deer along the way that we think was poached.

December 11th...snow packed trail. Fun hike and super peaceful with all the snow. Didn’t even use my snowtrax.

Quarry trail parking was covered in packed down snow. Parking across the street was clear. About 3” of snow on the start of the trail, probably 4-6 at the top. You may still be okay without spikes, but I would’ve been faster if I had them with me. Great option for a regular winter hike.

Super hard. Gorgeous views. Can’t wait to do it again.

Couldn't figure out where this looped around and seemed to share a trail with the full pipeline trail? Liked the area but wasn't sure if I was in the right spot. People were friendly and happy to great my dog with pets. Just be wary if you truely need a begginner level trail, the one I took goes up and doesn't level off.

Nice trail. FOUND SOME KEYS WITH ORANGE CARABINER; TOYOTA KEY PLUS OTHER KEYS...will turn them into police.

We hiked to the suspension bridge and did the loop back to our car. The bridge looks magnificent and the hike is nice with great views. The beginning is a little steep, but then loops around and quite and easy hike from the bridge down.

I don't know if I completed this hike because it seemed to end before 4.1 miles. I found a great lookout at the top and it wasn't too busy when I went.

I trail ran this route and had a blast. There is shade later on in the hike but the first potion is in the sun. There was frost around the trail near the end but I was fine in my running shoes.

Nice short hike with beautiful views of the canyon walls.

This trail is a lovely trail. The only big hill is at the bridge and if you don't want to do the loop back to the bridge there is a trail that will take you directly to the bridge so you can bi-pass it. We went up the hill and around. In total we crossed 3 bridges, a rock cave formation thing and saw the beautiful panorama of the valley. I would say this hike is easy without the big hill. If you add the hill I would say moderate. But I am a weekly hiker.

Did the hike just after sunrise on 11/3. We were the first ones out and back after a snowfall from the previous night, so we ended up losing track of the trail a lot. (Easy hike in the fresh snow powder, just hard to follow the true trail with so many side trails) The lake was completely frozen over but not yet completely snow covered. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.

awesome family trip, can do it in about an hour.

I dont go on very many hikes and today i thought i would try this one. it a good hike and I almost gave up and I asked someone how much further and she was like ur almost there the hard part is over. I almost gave up there but thanks to the sweet lady I made it to the bridge and it was amazing.

I hiked the upper portion for 1.7 miles until it comes back up to the road. Starts just below the ruins of the old Mill. Loved this trail. Very peaceful and a gradual climb to get your heart going a bit. I only saw three mountain bikers and five bikers on this trail. I think I will start at the bottom for a snow shoeing adventure this winter.

Great hike. This trail has a bit of everything. Snow, mud, rocks, wildlife...and other hikers.

Sometimes the beaten path is slightly different than the actual red-marked trail in this app. I veered off slightly and wound up backtracking twice. Pay attention to the app so you don’t veer too far.

I added the Silver Lake trail to my hike and finished at 5 miles flat. Had I not veered off I think I would have finished this hike at 4 miles.

Sandy City has notified residents that they are planning on developing a large soccer complex and dog park in the open space zoned area known as quail hollow park just east of albian junior high near 90th south and 3000 east. To pay for the park sandy is going to sell some of the land and raise taxes. Local residents are very upset by this as the land is currently a natural park full of wild life with beautiful views of the valley. Why the city would spoil one of the few remaining open spaces for housing development and a soccer field and dog park baffles many of those of us who live near the park. Besides the termendous expense of such an undertaking it seems blatantly to disregard the environmental impacts such a park would have. The city seems to be rushing through the process before the public becomes aware of the plans. Currently the area is heavily used for biking, running, and hiking trails. The area is home to deer, fox, rabbits, snakes, and all sorts of other wildlife. The park trails run along little cottonwood creek. There are three public meetings to discuss the park. monday oct 29th at alta canyon rec center, Thursday Nov 1st at Albian Middle School, and Saturday Nov 3rd at Albian middle school.

Beautiful hike! Quite snowy, but worth it! Hiked in the snow around the lake and then back down. definitely will go again!

The fall colors were gorgeous. The reservoir was really low, so it was a little muddy around the water. But the colors made the hike so worth it. There is some climbing over rocks, etc, but I think my kids would all do fine. It's not a very long nor a particularly difficult hike. (FYI, the trail isn't always clearly marked. We didn't go all the way around the reservoir.)

Fall colors are still beautiful despite the quick drop in temps this year. The lake is almost dried up though and there is a lot of mud. My kids did great on this one.

Great hike for sunset. A handful of switchbacks, then you have the option to go either left or right-ish. Keep an eye for signs, they are very easy to follow. The left-most route is flatter at first, giving you a chance to catch your breath if needed, but both ways have some decent elevation to them.

Saw some sand crickets hanging out in the path, some guys paragliding, a couple dogs, and like I said, that sunset! The bridge is cool and fun - it moves quite a bit. A nice quick hike. Could be challenging for young kids.
