Hard but fun!

It was a nice, relaxing hike with the family. Great views with a blue sky at the end!

Great day for the hike! We wore our crampons, it helped with the switch backs, but once you get past the 1st mile it flattens out and you get to enjoy a nice view all the way to the look.

Hard with new snow. Only one person on trail to summit (Sunday). Snowshoes necessary past Y fork.

Great day hike. Dog friendly. it is a steady climb the whole way. Good shoes and plenty of water is a good idea.

Trail was muddy after the turn from the living room. Along the final climb spikes were very useful because of the hard ice up.

It’s kind of hard to find, I used a local blog to get good directions (girlonahike). But it was worth it to find it, the grotto was fun to play in. I went to first week of June and didn’t see any hornets luckily, because I would have high tailed it out of there if I did. I didn’t see anyone else on the trail.

Great hike with amazing views of the Valley. Great workout and worth making it all the way to the top.

Love this hike. It's very rewarding, steep and strenuous. Great workout! There was hardly any snow last week amd we didn't use spikes.

The headlamp hike to Jacks Mt last weekend was good. I love the tributes at the summit. Heart warming stuff. I decided to proceed to the to the ridge line behind to the east. WORST MILE EVER. I ran out of deer trails altogether and found out that rocks are hard and shins are softer. My own mistake. Socked in at the top so no payoff. I'll turn around after summiting Jacks next time.

Completed this hike on 2/3/18. This is always a great easy-moderate hike with great views of downtown SLC and plenty of wildlife. Lots of wind at the summit, but still worth it.

Beautiful scenery. Steep in the beginning and evens out after the first mile.

Great hike! I didn’t think it was as difficult as it was rated! Nice and dry try most the way up!!

We went on a sunset hike here tonight. The first 50 yards or so was a sheet of ice, and the rest just had some really muddy spots. Views along the ridge line were beautiful.

The beginning of the trail is a little boring, and it is kind of hard to figure out which trails to take because there aren’t any signs. It’s a pretty hike though once you figure out which way you are supposed to go. It gets really narrow once you get close to the top, but if you pay attention and go slow, you should be fine. I would not recommend taking small kids.

pretty decent hike to make you lose your breath and keep you winded, but in the end it's an amazing hike.

Easily one of my favorite hikes. It doesn’t take a long time to get there, it’s not too hard, there are lots of places to hammock when you get there, and the lake is so beautiful and clear! I love going up there to relax and enjoy the pretty view :)

Almost no ice or snow left right now and it's been perfect weather for hiking

Nice hike. To get to it you park in the parking lot for the Davis creek trail and then jump in the BST and hike toward steed canyon and from Steed canyon onto hornets canyon. First part of the hike is open without trees no shade and then when going into steed canyon it starts to get a bit shady until you’re fully shaded. Trail is visible and easy to follow but there a couple of places with forks and if you don’t have the map to know where to go you go into other trails. Up toward the top the trail’s shoulder is really soft and has eroded and somewhat steep to climb, be careful walking through there. Once you get to the weeping wall falls it is beautiful and tranquil. Loved the sounds of the falling water.

Short hike, very steep at first. Great view at the end. I went a couple of weeks ago and it was super muddy from the snow melting.

Awesome trail! Lots of different small trails to take around the mountains/falls. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

Most difficult part was the beginning and then it flattens out as you get to the overlook of the city. Overall, it was a decent hike with some pretty good scenery of the the mountains and city.

Hiked as part of a loop from Alta to Germania Pass

Just a little icy the first 100 yards then muddy/dry the rest of the way.

My absolute favorite trail!

Like it. Wanna try the spring time..

1-11-18 do not even try without spikes! Stop at Gear:30 in Ogden for some spikes!

Nice trail, but dogs are not allowed in the canyon nor on this trail. I took my dog with me but after seeing all the signs, I left her in the truck. I was stopped by a Ranger who was kind enough to let me know that you can’t even have a dog in your vehicle. Apparently the ticket is $550. So, be forewarned.

Went right after a fresh snow and it was incredible. Beautiful views of the city, not too steep. I've been back since it's snowed and there are parts that are EXTREMELY icy. You have to wear crampons or at least hold on to branches for footing to get you up.
