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

Great hike today. Some snow, no moose today. Saw 2 different 3point buck and plenty of doe. Took 1.5hrs to reach beaver dam, snowed on us throughout the hike. Very slick in some areas, trekking poles helped.

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!

Hiked 11/5 and went all the way up to mt O’Sullivan. Didn’t need crimpons at all unless you go up past the meadow. If you go past the upper meadow tread cautiously as there are thin layers of snow on the rocks and it can be slippery. Way up high snowshoes helped as there was 2 feet plus of snow. Gorgeous this time of year.

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.

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

Beautiful hike! Very well marked and a good challenge! It was steep but not too hard!

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.

Favorite hike to get some headspace!

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.

Perfect low elevation hike while the weather permits. No snow on the trail nor at the top, which is why it was perfect for this time of year.

Good hardy hike. The views are great even from the saddle before the final push for the summit. Great sunset.

Clocked it at just over 3.6 miles, so it's a bit longer than the description claims. Cold and damp up there today with some light snow. Very easy to lose the trail especially towards the very top when you have to make that left turn, fallen leaves are obscuring some of the trail. Follow the app GPS to make sure you go up and to the left for the last stretch. There is a bit of leftover icy snow in the higher elevations on some stretches. I brought spikes since I know it's steep. Saw some fresh moose tracks in the path of the first meadow.

Winter gate is already up for the season. If you want to do this one from the starting point shown, you'll need to road walk 1.5 miles to get to the trailhead after parking at the picnic area in front of the Winter gate. Or you could connect to it via another trail that begins prior to the gate.

Really fun little hike, so close to town. Lots of people, lots of dogs, beautiful views from the "furniture."

One of my favorite views of the Wasatch Range is from this peak. It’s really not a difficult hike, once you get up to Catherine Pass, follow the trail to the right for only another half mile or so up to the peak. If the Alta summer road is open, you can park for free at the trailhead if you get in before 7am.

Went up today. Not sure why it’s rated hard, I would rate it moderate. Used crampons when I got above the bridge. Very nice hike, this trail would be great in the summer with all the shade. Very beautiful when you get up around 7500 feet.

Good workout going up. Beautiful view at the top. The trailhead does not list the hike but start and follow signs to “mill B” trail. When you get up the mountain most of the way, there is a subtle fork in the trail, take the fork that goes south or left along the ridge.

It was definitely difficult for me, though I did it roundtrip in 3 hrs and 30 mins. Trail was well marked and very nice! The view was beautiful with snow on the mountains! Trail does have a bit of snow when you start getting higher up.

Great views, great hike

Wish I'd brought gloves and spikes cause it was damn cold after the saddle and slippery on the way down. Beautiful hike though, will do again.

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

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!
