I gave this four stars because I am sure this is a remarkable trail… but my personal experience, it should’ve been a zero. But it’s not a trail fault, I picked the worst day to do this trail. When I got to the peak, there was zero visibility to the city below. Also, there was a lot of ice on the ground and it was very difficult to walk up. I knew I should’ve waited for a clear day, but I only had a couple of hours free in order to make this hike happen at all. I will see if I can get time to do this trail one more time, but I doubt it. Anyway, I’m sure this trail is beautiful in the summertime.

This is basically the Memory Grove Trail. Back in June of last year, I ran to memory Grove Trail and it was OK, I gave it three stars. I am giving this one to start because city park is nothing until it gets to memory Grove Park. Memory Grove Trail is a nice trail with a lot of honors to the military. It has a gradual increase of elevation for the 1st mile and a half. Half the trail was closed because there was a lot of snow so I turned back the way I came.

Lots of options and outlets, did in late fall and it was great. Will do again in spring also great for trail running

My third time going. It was muddy and icy, but overall very nice.

Be sure to have proper gear if going when the trail is icy!

Nice little hike, busy. Lots of cross country and snow shoes but you don't have to have those as the snow is packed down. Parking is a bit of a nightmare.

Hiked part of this trail from the Grandeur Peak trailhead at the Churchill campground on New Years Day. The snowy views were beautiful and with most of the trail in the sun, it was not too cold. No need for snowshoes or spikes, the trail is packed down, only icy in small spots.

Hiked this with a bunch of friends. Each of our GPS/fitness devices said different mileage but we figured it was about 9.5. Be sure you have poles and spikes since there are some parts where it’s slick! Heads up - We ran into a dead deer along the way that we think was poached.

very fun short hiking! the top part is really really muddy, but super fun too!

easily accessible trailhead.the trails are marked and well maintained there was mud and a trace of snow towards the top.

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 ...

Nice area. Lots of other trails. I Would like or come back in the spring

Easy, short, loop with plenty of brush and trees for the dogs to sniff. Very busy so the pups will have plenty of friends to play with. Dog waste stations throughout.

I trail ran this route and had a blast. There is shade later on in the hike but the first potion is in the sun. There was frost around the trail near the end but I was fine in my running shoes.

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!

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

Excellent hike this morning. Predawn start to catch the sunrise from the top. Fresh layer of snow 1-2inches. The streams are frozen over enough to support my 200+lbs. Didn’t attempt the lake although it looked pretty thick. Plenty of deer to be seen and some moose tracks.

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

Good, short hike with nice views of the lake and surrounding communities. I appreciated the signage along the trail to help me decide if I wanted to extend the loop by checking out one of the spur trails.

Worth it for the view, short, and nice

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

pretty little park and very easy walk. either paved or a trail. short and takes less than an hour. most people use this as a dog park

Easy nice morning climb to watch sun rise.

Definitely a favorite for my pup. She loves to swim at the pond/lake area at the end. One of my favorite places to explore!

Great for a short hike, not so much for mountain biking. This app says it's mountain bike friendly but there's actually a sign that says bikes prohibited. That may just be in the first overlook area at the bottom, but bikes aren't a great idea for this trail anyway because it's so frequently trafficked and steep. I had to walk my bike up most of the way (lifted it over the bigger rocks at the top) and of course heavily breaked nonstop on the way down. I adore the view at the top tho! Especially in the morning! The sun rises over the east mountain range the sunlight filtered beautifully through the autumn colored trees on the mountain.

This is one of my favorite lakes in the Wasatch. A good all around hike with a fantastic mountain lake at the end, that you can swim in. The trail gets fairly steep in some spots but nothing too bad.

Great hike to take the pups on with gorgeous views! Would definitely do the hike again on spring and fall! Mostly shaded single track trail with dirt and some boulders throughout. Had a nice quick stream crossing where you walked over some rocks and boulders to keep your feet dry. Almost all the fall leaves were on the ground already so the backdrop had a lot of bare trees. Not too crowded on a Saturday surprisingly. The drive up the road to the trailhead is pretty rocky and rough which was not very fun but the hike and views were well worth it. Parking lot was small so we parked on the roadside. Was glad to see that they honored the National Parks Pass so we didn’t have to pay any fees.

My dogs love being off leash here!
