mosquitoes like I've never seen. no fishing either.

Took our 2 year old on this hike and he made it about a quarter to a third of the way on his own before he got tired. Although that may have been because it was getting late. It was about 7 pm when we started the hike. Either way it was a great hike. Very fun and quick even with a two year old.

Short steep hike with a very scenic view at the end . Not one of my favorites mainly because the lack of forest.

great hike a little difficult for a beginner like me had to stop quite a bit to catch my breath and i also forgot the bug spray if you hike this Trail you're definitely going to need bug spray for all the mosquitoes... But once we reach the lake it was all worth it so beautiful up there

Gorgeous water, beautiful wildflowers!

This was our 3rd hike since moving to Salt Lake City. I would highly recommend this trail if you are a moderate hiker. The topography was my favorite so far. The tall trees cover most of the hike and you constantly have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It isn’t too intense for anyone and the view of the city is amazing once your up there.

This was pretty good. Well maintained trail with only a few rocky sections. The view at the top was great, but difficult to enjoy due to bugs and lack of sitting places.

So lovely. Challenging!

amazing views! very steep and will kick your butt! the only thing that would make it better is a nice creek.

The actual mileage is 5.2, but its super relaxing; gets a little crowded so I would make sure to start by 0700. The scenic overlook is good, but not as good as Living Room (though the hike is better).

A lot of doggos. So many good boys.

Standing on the peak as I type. Going down may be a bit treacherous. That was the steepest 2 miles I have ever hiked up.

Always a great, quick hike. Hot hot hot so bring water.

Amazing quick hike with a terrific view. Would like to explore this area more.

So beautiful along the whole trail. Amazing flowers and plenty of shade. Easy for small kids.

Saw 5 different moose, a porcupine, and lots of deer! We started at the trail head at 530 AM ! Got to the top around 630 AM and watched the sunrise ! This is my favorite hike ever! So beautiful! Accurately labeled moderate!

Pretty trail! Definitely moderate. Our 2 year old couldn't finish on his own, and our 6 year old made it but not without lots of complaining. Would definitely go back but not with small kids.

great for the dogs. Best to do in the morning or evening because it is very exposed.

Awesome hike; great views at the top and well worth the steep elevation gain.

Hiked up and ran down from the First parking lot: 2:39

We hit the trail around 8:45am and saw a smattering of people now and then. This has lovely views on the climb, with lots of wild flowers and the lake is peaceful when loud talking people are not there. Why do people talk so loud? On the way down we stopped at Dog Lake which is small and more peaceful. We spotted a moose couple near the end of the hike which made our day; we couldn't miss them they crossed the trail.

Tough hike. I took my 10 year old daughter on her first overnight backpacking trip. This was definitely a tough hike. Great fishing.

I'm totally out of shape. Never workout. This was a tough hike, but achievable. Done in a little over 2 hours. Would definitely recommend it!

Gorgeous. Loved every minute! It was a great day for hiking too!

great hike with a great view of the valley.

Great morning hike done in 2.39 hrs with two long stops at the top of Tuscarora and Wolverine. Trail is very visible and easy to follow for experienced hikers with basic navigation skills.

Steep for beginners like me, but gorgeous. Lovely lake! Please be courteous and remember that swimming is not permitted.

Gets your calves burning. Great for dog, please don’t bring your non-dog friendly dogs though and let them off leash. Please just be considerate of people with dogs on leash just trying to get one with nature.

Great out and back with fantastic views of SLC. Really green, even in late summer. If you’re a birder, great high elevation coniferous forest is likely great in the morning. With only ~1000ft elevation gain, going up isn’t difficult and switchbacks aren’t bad. About 65% of the trail is shaded which is great. We hiked this mid-day in August, sunny spots were hot, but plenty of shade. Every group we ran into that afternoon was all women, get it ladies!! Not in any rush, this took us about 2.5hrs. Do be aware that there is a $3/car area use fee on the way out

It’s really pretty worth the hike ...the only problem today was all that SMOKE !

A relentlessly steep hike, and once at the top, the smoke created a haze that made it hard to enjoy the view. Nevertheless, it's a great hike and an even better workout. I took 3 liters of water and ran out by the time I was at the bottom.
