Great way to escape the Inversion and learn to do some basic snowshoeing.

13 hours ago

We snowshoed about 1/2 (4.2 miles) of this trail. Starting at 1.7 miles in, no trail had been forged through the snow yet. The woods were beautiful. Most longer-distance views were of skiers. It was fun for a snowshoe workout but it wouldn’t be my first choice for hiking or great views.

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

A M A Z I N G Winter Summit!

Definitely a Challenge ...

Come prepared ...

But SO worth it!

This was way FUN!!!

You need micro spikes as the trail was completely snow covered. I don’t think the view is as good, as the hike up the pipeline trail to the salt lake over look, but it’s still pretty

Microspikes are your friend for this trail.

Beautiful hike in the snow at night with headlamps. Only needed microspikes as the snow was packed down on the trail, despite deep snow on the sides of the trail.

Hiked it yesterday. Beautiful view, and it was nice to get above the inversion for a little bit. There are some ice spots, I used micro spikes for some parts, but they certainly not necessary.

Great trail. First time doing this one and the view from the top is gorgeous. No need for snowshoes or spikes on this day. Trails are a little narrow with some steep drop offs on some parts. Views on the trail are gorgeous too.

Love this hike, it’s so close and easy to get to. Parts of it are icy but I was able to manage only with hiking boots 12.11.18

Great trail. It's well-worn in the snow and you should only need microspikes unless you're going up right after a storm. Wonderful views of the canyon and valley all in one hike.

This is absolutely one my All Time favorite summits in Utah. I love it because it’s steep and relatively a short 3.3 mile to the top. My personal record to the summit stands at 1 hour 37 min and little under 41 mins to run back down to the trailhead. As of December 8th, I have summited Mt. Olympus 16 times in 2018.

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.

I did this hike as a prep hike the weekend before I did Mt. Whitney. It was my first time doing it even though I have hiked all over the Wasatch Front. I was amazed at how majestic this hike is from beginning to end. It's a great hike to do in the late fall and early winter because it starts at a relatively low elevation compared to most other hikes near Salt Lake City/Sandy, Utah. As such there was little to no snow on the trail. I did it in about 5.5 hours (around 3 hours up, 2.5 hours down).

On the last quarterish mile scramble to the summit, I got misdirected and started ascending the wrong way. Luckily, a dude set me in the right direction (thanks Stu!) and I got to the summit to take in the preposterous views of Salt Lake Valley. Early on in the hike, it also forks and one prong of that fork goes down the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I walked down that trail for a few hundred meters before I realized my error (thanks to the AllTrails app).

I highly recommend this hike.

Loved every second, on the way up at least

Hiked at sunrise on 11/15, went counter clockwise. I would say about 85-90% of the trail was a nice snow pack and easy to walk on but there were some big snow drift spots. Didn’t have any issues with ice and slipping. Wall lake was the only lake not completely ice and snow covered. Looking forward to returning after winter.

Went last weekend to hike this trail. We started around 8:30/9:00. There was snow throughout the entire trail, but it wasn't too bad for the most part. Mid-way through the hike, there was some deeper snow and you lose the trail a little. But it's pretty easy to use All Trails app to find your way through this tiny part and get back on the trail. SO gorgeous this time of year! And the snow melted as the day went on - making the trail easier to see.

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.

I had a great early morning sunrise hike. Pretty chilly this time of year. The hills were perfect for high intensity interval cardio.

Found a sport dog field trainer thing on the trail. find me on Instagram @savethenegs to retrieve it.

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

Spectacular view of the SLC valley! A great Halloween hike!
Dress warm ❄️

Holy crap what a trail!!! Very rewarding and yet hard , not for the fainted heart! Did this hike on Halloween day, you may see snow towards mile 3 once you get to first summit it’s all dried! Lot of people on the trail. Made it to top in 3 hours plus about half hour for breaks and picture takes, coming down was also a little challenging because of the snow that melted and now it was slushy, def hiking poles . Coming down took me 2 hrs.
Layer up as it’s very cold on the scramble area if sun is not out. Happy hiking!

Snow is all gone as of yesterday. Incredibly steep but rewarding trail! The scramble wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Have shoes with good grip!

Well worth it! The views are outstanding! We consider ourselves pretty fast hikers, but this is a continuous incline that feels like you're on a stair-master at the gym. Roughly 7 miles round trip took us 5.5 hours total (4.5 hours moving 1 hour of breaks and pictures). We're not "climbers" and we had no problem with the "scramble" after the saddle. October 27, 2018 no snow on the trail.

The start was very rocky and not what I was expecting. Once you make the turn towards the creek, it’s beautiful. The elevation gain was slow and steady. Some parts are over grown do your not sure where exactly the trail leads. Would go again in the spring.

Correction about my last review:
We parked at the Community Church on Bear Hollow. Started on the Collins Trail heading up to Rob's Trail. After the moose we came down that trail but took a side trail into the neighborhood that connected us to Dubois Trail (not Dejong) .
