decent quick hike. hiked in, had lunch and enjoyed the falls. easy trail with a little elevation. saw toddlers having no issue.

Very hard. Very steep...about 1000ft elevation gain per mile. Went last fall and while there where beautiful areas of the hike, and definitely you probably be the only one on the trail, I won't be a repeat user of this trail.

Decent trail for off roading. There were a few hills where I felt like my Truck got some good exercise. The view up at the top is amazing!

Took the family around 1000 on a Saturday morning. Trail was perfect for my kids, ages 7-13. Decent wildlife, with some birds and lizards. Trail would be great for running - we did see ppl doing this and biking. Easy to get to the trailhead, and the kids had fun playing on the little rock wall at the park before and after our hike. The suspension bridge was very cool. We had fun looking at the valley as we hiked, there are a lot of fancy homes just below the trail which were fun to gawk at.

Took the kids on this quick hike. The bridge Is super cool! All kids did great from 5 year old to 9 year old.

It was a pretty boring trail until you hit the creek which was a lot more fun. Pretty view of bridal veil but nothing you can’t see from the highway. No one else on the trail which was nice. The stone couch was a nice place for a picnic.

Awesome hike. Had a great time. Pretty easy to hike.

We went earlier in the morning & only passed a few people. Great hike for my 7-year old son & 14-year old dog.

This hike was gorgeous and comfortable. It starts out a bit steeper than I expected, but soon levels out with pockets of shade along the way. We left around 9:20 a.m. and it wasn’t too heavily trafficked and the temperature was perfect! Highly recommend- doable with children and dogs.

Great family hike, even when it is hot.

many butterflies and photogenic areas.

grove like places along the trail to sit or even camp.

blatant sign before the hike starting no open fires allowed in the areas.

the springs have been capped for some time, but the caps make good tables.

other trails accessible from here.

Great easy hike. Go early if you want shade. We started off around 9:30 am and still had a decent amount of shade along the way and it wasn't too warm. The hike is a gradual incline and not too slippery along the way. The bridge is a great break in the hike.

Trail has been built over by a new housing development. No access, at least for now.

Great for kids. My 3 year old made it up with no problem.

The hike to the look out is very rocky and not much to look at, but the overlook once you get there is AMAZE!! Pretty easy hike, just annoying as it feels like you’re walking through a dried up river.

This trail has been taken over by motorcycles and, particularly on the backside, is terribly worn down. It is not a peaceful hike as it is a very constant, steep descent punctuated by motorcycle traffic.

If you start from the dam and hike to the top, it is more peaceful though we were passed by a group of 3 motorcycles. It was a steady ascent but not uncomfortable uncomfortable.

Great trail with several different types of trails, the app says 5.6 Miles but it is more like 6.8. The views are great and the walk back is much easier than getting up there! Took about 4 hours and we spent time enjoying the scenes along the way.

Much nicer trail road compared with Battle Creek - better views also. Highly recommended. Maybe back in fall time.

great drive the thing I believe that makes this hard is a bypass trail that leads to the mountain ridge and the steep incline. my wife and I were able to complete the bypass trail in a stock Xterra with AT tires. 9 inches of clearance was enough for all of the obstacles but 4 low was a necessity, lockers would be nice but not needed. this is a single lane trail so go slow and watch for traffic.
great view of utah lake once you get up to the radio towers.

The Aqueduct trail and Ralph’s trail leading up to the Bear canyon trail is open to horses but Draper City animal service officer who we passed on the Aqueduct trail said horses aren’t allowed above Bonneville Shoreline due to it being a watershed area. He said any sign that said no dogs meant no animals at all. Anyone know for sure? I thought there were two different kind of restricted watershed areas: one that restricted all animals and another one that only restricted dogs. I thought Bear Canyon Trail fell into the watershed area that restricted dogs but allowed horses. Anyone know for sure?
Unless horses are allowed the entire way, I would not place this trail in a horseback riding category.

The dirt road to get to the trailhead is a rough 5 miles. The trail itself becomes little more than an overgrown game trail for the last 3/4 of a mile. That being said, the views of Utah Valley, American Fork Canyon and beyond (great back view of the twin peaks), and the front, usually unseen side, of Timp, make this fun to do at least once. My 4 year old and 2 year old only had problems with the wildflowers and other plants that lined the trail that we brushing their arms, legs, and faces - since they were shorter than the plants.

Hike this often with my 3 year old — It’s our favorite! Nice for a leisure hike with our dogs and plenty of places of hang a hammock and relax in nature.

Our favorite hike! It starts on a dirt road with a pretty intense uphill walk but opens up onto a creek running down the mountain. You can go as far as you want up the mountain following along the creek. It goes quite a ways! Nicely shaded in the afternoon.

It was fun and really beautiful. Not hard at all!

We saw a rattlesnake on the horse trail about 200 yards south of the Orson Smith trailhead about 10 AM today.

It had about 6 rattles and slithered off into a small patch of scrub oak. It did rattle eventually inside the clump of brush but it wasn't coiled when we saw it.

I hike the trails in the area about once per week. This was the first rattler I've seen on the mountain.

Spring looks like it's been capped and goes through a pipe. During higher runoff water could come out an overflow pipe. Good trail

Absolutely stunner view and what a payoff! The approach is quite muggy and hotter than surrounding areas. The payoff was stunner and we spent an hour alone there. Good option for those with a 4 legged friend that are blocked out of zion.

GO early! very little shade and it was pretty warm by 930 am.
Easy hike... up hills and down hills. beautiful views.
bathroom in parking lot is clean. parking lot small, but if you go early no problem.
we used walking sticks and glad we had them. suspension bridge was a great photo opportunity. walk the trail past the bridge a mile or more and fun rock formation to walk through. fun for children.

Loved this trail. It wasn’t too hard to do even for a newbie like me and my pup. She enjoyed the views and getting out. Luckily I brought lots of water for me and her. Make sure you bring water for yourself and your dogs there’s not much to keep you out of the sun most of the trail so hydration is key!

trail is well maintained. easy to moderate. view and bridge is bonus at the end. best to hike in the early early morning!

One of my favorite trails in this area. Go early because the trail is mostly in the sun. I went the first day and turned around (started to late in the day). The next day started at 6:30. Incline is not too hard, scenery beautiful, and trail clearly defined. You get all kinds of scenery- cliffs, wooded areas, meadows. It’s just lovely.
