Fun little trail with impressive views of the valley.

Great historic hike as well ...

Lots of mud this time of year ...

There is a boot scraper, but bring plastic bags ...

:-)

Amazing everything with this one. It's steep at parts but worth every bit.

Saw 2 moose on trail on way back down from Blanche at 8:45am. One got a little aggressive and charged a hiker coming up the trail, but did not make contact. Whoa! Heads up!

Beautiful day on trail in the snow, handful of hikers. Spotted moose off trail, took nice photo. Hikers I bumped into reported 3 moose on trail and said a bull acted aggressive. Turned around .5 mile from top (not interested in bumping into aggressive bull so turned bag. Wore Salomon Speedcross GTX with gaiters and tights, was enough, brought poles. Did not need Microspikes, no ice, just new snow coming down today. Enjoy!

I went up here with my family this summer. Only a 2-minute walk to a pretty cool waterfall. Super quick and easy, but super fun too!

Great hike with amazing views! Went today and the trail was snow covered with patches of ice so cleats are recommended. We were fortunate to see a moose as well.. highly recommended hike!

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.

If anyone sees a leatherman in a case, my sister dropped hers (custom made 18 yrs ago) and would love it back if someone picks it up.

I did this hike on Nov 16th, and chose a day that the weather would be pleasant. I recommend bringing sunglasses or a hat because the trail goes southeast the whole way and the sun was right in our eyes. It was a beautiful day, icy but sunny. It was pretty slick on the way down with the hard packed snow, so be sure to have good treads on your boots. If you are with amateurs like I was, I would definitely go early in the day. It will take over 4 hours to go down and back, especially if you want to sit for a while and enjoy the sunshine on the smooth cool-looking rocks up top, overlooking the lake. Once we were out of the sun, it was quite cold so gloves and a hat were nice. We went later in the season, so we only met a couple other hikers along the way. We did come across some deer up close, darting across the trail.

It’s a relatively easy hike and very well-marked. It’s a beautiful view of the valley if the sky is clear. If it’s hazy or smoky, you can’t see much!

Great hike. Started to snow on the way up and was really slick coming back down. Would suggest micro spikes for the downhill. Beautiful trail, Lake was frozen but still worth it.

Nice short trail with an amazing view of SLC at the peek.

Rated at 4 as i lost the trail both up and down and there was a decent amount of bush-whacking/scrambling. Only one area where it was slippery enough to use spikes going up today, about 20 or so feet. 2 hours up.

It is short but pretty steep almost the entire time. But worth it if you take it slow it’s a great hike for anyone. At the top you see the entire valley so very worth it

Sunny. No material wind. Microspikes not needed today. Only a few brief slick areas on trail. Started at 11:20am, 37 degrees at S curve. Parking lot closed for season. Wore tank, baseball cap, wool gloves and tights. Didn’t use wind breaker, could have gone with shorts, would still suggest gloves for top. Took me 1:15 from trail head to top, if you’re somewhere in that range or faster would highly recommend shorts. Enjoy!

Great hike!! Very beautiful scenery, especially at the top. Took about 2hrs to reach the top, moving at a quicker pace. The trail is a steady incline, and very rarely levels out. May prove difficult to someone unaccustomed to physical activity, but certainly doable. Some small ice patches, but not enough for crampons yet. Would definitely recommend grippy shoes/boots and some trekking poles.

It was a very easy to follow trail with some beautiful views. Basically all uphill to get there and all downhill coming back so I hope you're in better shape than me. The lake is frozen which was a little dissapointing but still beautiful. There were a couple icy spots on the trail but most of it is still clear. The parking lot is closed for the season. I would recommend starting the hike around noon. We started around 9 and were hiking straight into the sun all morning. Up near the lake are some colorful rock formations that are pretty cool and Sundial Peak is breathtaking.

Worth it for the view, short, and nice

Worth doing once for the view of the city. Easy to follow. Well maintained.

literally best hike ever. I tracked it as 8.3 miles and took 4 hours but would probably take 5 at a more leisurely pace. lots of snow right now! really intense legit a hard hike. climbed 195 flights of stairs. please take a flashlight with you. this trail can take a long time and hiking poles would be smart

Phenomenal views at the top. The hike itself is challenging but more because of the length than the grade or terrain.

So gorgeous! Tough climb up if you’re not a regular hiker but so worth it.

Mild incline, great views. Trail starts out muddy and gets snowy towards the end. You shouldn’t need microspikes just yet, hiking shoes/boots with good traction and/or trekking polls should suffice. It’s much colder at the lake, so make sure you bring adequate clothing to layer up when you get there.

Beautiful went in October and nov colors were beautiful keep going around to see smaller lakes there are a couple of water falls that way defiantly worth the hike

Easy nice morning climb to watch sun rise.

Short but falls were hidden so couldn’t view.

beautiful hike, worth the trip

Beautiful hike! Went late in the afternoon so we saw a lot of snow. Once we got about .3 miles away from the lake there were about 4 moose on the trail so we tried to wait it out but they didn’t move and we ended up turning around. I hike occasionally and I’m in decent shape, and this hike was not hard at all!
