Loved seeing the past. I found some entrances to the mines that are still open. Very tempting to go in.

Excellent hike back in time!

Pretty hard hike. The snow gets deep in some areas. Yes... there’s snow the entire trail. We never did reach the summit. The map was trying to take us down a trail with nearly 3 feet of snow... we turned around. Probably a trail we’ll cross off the list and not return.

Beautiful hike up and fun sledding down!

Never ever do this hike in the winter

Such a beautiful hike! Saw at least 7 moose while on the trail.

Beautiful snowy hike with everything you could want on a hike: pine forest, aspen groves, wide vistas and benches placed perfectly along the way to stop and rest and take in the view.

Wonderful easy hike especially when coming up from sea level.

Beautiful day, beautiful trail. Runs along the edge of the park city ski resort boundary. At the top, super cool old abandoned mine. Went inside to see some of the old machinery. The mine has multiple levels, staircases inside lead up to higher levels. We walked up the trail following a creek in a wooded area. The walk down was along ski runs. Would not have been possible this time of year had there been more snow.

Hiked last week with a nice layer of snow. Winter wonderland with nice views of canyons at top.

Awesome

Super hike today on lots of fresh snow. Saw two moose on the way up to the top of Rob’s trail. First time using the All Trails app and we loved having the data and using the downloaded map. Yep we went “pro” at breakfast and so glad we did.

It was a slower hike up due to the 8” or so of snow but a very quick descent.

Found it VERY difficult to follow this unmarked trail. Great hiking area with lots of options,.....I ended up on more side trails than the one shown in app. Loved seeing old mine!

Great day hike - headed up the mtn from large ski resort parking lot and took small trail to the right through an large grassy area. Once at the trail I continued up the mtn. It’s a bit sketchy when you get to where this trail merges into Middle Mtn and then later into Armstrong. Glad I had this app so I could confirm I was on right trail.

We hiked down this canyon after summiting Thayne’s Peak via Desolation Trail. Steep and rocky to the summit. I think this peak is under appreciated. A 360 vista of each direction shows many peaks and summits which is pretty cool.

Took the kids, it was great. The trail had spots of mud but the temperature was perfect. Beautiful hike and we will be doing it again soon.

Trail is beautiful right now. Snow starts to pop up intermittently around the halfway point but it isn't too bad. There's a decent stretch that crampons would've been helpful for, but for the most part a pair of good grip-y shoes will be fine. Super steep, though. Pretty much the entire way up. Zero signage though, so double check on the map here to make sure you're staying on track.

The trail was steep, muddy and a tad snowy, with not much of a view. However, the view at the top is absolutely bonkers.

Gorgeous trail. Made it in 2.5 hours. Wet today.

I don't know where you get your mileage but hiked it today and it was 2.8 miles one way. Trail does end at the intersection of a couple of other trails so you can extend your hike if you want to. Pretty easy trail with a few scenic areas. Would be a good family hike if kids could handle this distance. You could do the hike in tennis shoes.

A lot tougher than expected... but amazing views at sunset!

Steep and slippery but fantastic views. Some snow and mud. Even with a hiking pole I slipped several times. Better than neffs for city views.

Decided to hike this today..... there were still about 8-12 inches of snow of a good chunk of the trail, which made the going difficult. I only had one pair of foot prints to follow in the snow and was kind of nervous about my dog getting stuck in a snow drift! saw no tracks headed down, decided to take Desolation trail on the way back down, which was in much better condition today.

great steep hike.

Great views of the lake.. Tough last half of the trail.. Beware the horse poop..bring waterproof boots

Not any signs to tell you where you are

Here are some more specific directions:

Park at donut falls parking lot and begin walking the donut falls trail as if that's where you are headed. Continue along the trail until you cross the creek over the bridge. At this point you will be at a fork in the trail. There will be a trail sign for donut falls pointing to the left as you face it. Walk west, past and behind this trail marker for donut falls. You will immediately hit a service trail, it is wide and can't be missed. Turn left, head up the trail approximately 250 yds. You will see a trail on your right headed up the Mtn. It may be very overgrown in the spring. This is the trail to Kesslers peak. And it's hard as hell. Very steep throughout. But great views at the top.

Great views. Well maintained. Lots of mountain bikes but no issues with being able to step out of track

We ended up doing the loop which took in Desolation Trail, beautiful views on the Desolation side, 8.5 miles total. All uphill for the first 3.5 miles. We had to use our phone flashlights for the last 1/2 hour.
The trail is not clearly marked, definitely no mile markers. Strenuous and some narrow steep drops in areas, we loved it!
