Loved every second, on the way up at least

What a fun trail! Took my stock ‘18 Rubicon up Tibble today. The weather was great. Some snow covered spots along the trail on the way down to Midway starting after the highest elevation point. For those wondering if this trail is for them, id say definitely make sure you have an SUV with 4wd or AWD (mostly for the snow). You’ll go over some rocky areas but its not bad. Could def handle in a Forester or another small SUV.

Stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley! Nice, moderate walk on decent trail over an interesting hogback ridge. Clear evidence of mountain biker tracks but I saw none this morning. I saw only four other hikers. Cold breeze. No precipitation. No mud. Many oak trees with nearly all leaves fallen. Best to remember natural markers because there are several unmarked intersections.

The trail, where it diverges from the Rock Canyon trail, is not marked. Use the map in this app to make sure that you make the left turn at the y in the trail. It is steep, but winds through aspen and other deciduous forest. There were flocks of robins, other small birds, and deer in the woods. Wish I had been here a few weeks earlier when the aspen were bright yellow.

The upper part of the trail is steep and was very muddy from snow melt. The view from the peak is worth the effort.

Awesome Trail.

Easy loop trail with scenic variety of forest, meadow and panoramic views of Timponogos which steal the show. Definitely layer up this time of year, but I was sweating in the sun when protected by the trees. The melting ice also makes the path very muddy and surprisingly slippery, so be careful.

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

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!

This is a really tough hike in the snow. We went on Sunday 10/28 and from about mile 3 onwards it was all in snow. We'd tried on Thursday and had only got as far as the meadow as the winds were so strong we couldn't even see our own tracks and couldn't find the trail. We managed to summit on Sunday but from the saddle to the hut and back again was very windy and very sketchy. If you've never done this before (which I hadn't), it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. Once over the saddle, the drops are very very steep and, I thought, very very scary. The views, however, are spectacular and the trail was pretty easy to follow. The whole thing took us 10 hours as it was slow going in the snow, so we came out in the dark. Be prepared and stay safe!

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!

Took the puppers up here today, was a mild hike, views of Timp are amazing, there is a nice mix of shade and openness. It was a quiet trail (Sunday) only came across a couple of people. Was a little muddy in spots from snow melt after the warm weather.

60 degrees at 8:30am this morning. Was able to catch the sunrise. Easy trail to find with a gradual climb in elevation. Great views of Timpanogos, Lone Peak and Utah Lake. I was able to run all the way back down the trail without slowing down because it wasn’t too steep.

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.

Beautiful fall colors! great moderate hike. I didn't see any stream, though.

A word of warning: 3.5 hours into my hike all my credit card companies sent fraud alert texts to me. My car was broken into and the bad guys took all my cash and credit cards. I have been told by a friend that this is unfortunately common when you park in the parking lot. The advice is to park on Wasatch Blvd. where there is plenty of traffic passing by, and not in the parking lot. Went on October 26, and we wore shorts, it was so nice. Brisk but not too cold, and it is quite steep so we were plenty warm.

We hiked this over Labor day weekend. The views and wildlife we saw were totally worth the hard hike. It was amazing!

As of today the snow has 99% melted leaving nothing but suffering for that last mile as you go. straight. up. forever. It's

Very difficult hike, the final half mile to the summit is poorly marked so you’re pretty much on your own. Found myself in several spots near the peak where I had to backtrack to find the trail. But if you push on to the summit you will be rewarded with amazing views of the Cottonwood canyons and the Wasatch mountains.

Been working up to this hike for weeks and it’s been the most rewarding Wasatch trail yet. Wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, this is a long and steep hike. Almost at the peak there’s a fantastic viewpoint, which is a worthy stopping point but it gets a bit more technical to the summit. Went in early October, there was some ice and snow on the second half of the trail so be prepared for that.

So beautiful and so worth it!

Hiked the summit in Sept when leaves were at there best. Started from Granite Flats going up Deer Creek Trail, great hike except for last mile it is straight up, no switch backs. Came down bushwhacking through cliffs to the north of the peak, fun trail finding adventure. Caught an unmarked trail that loops around a no name peak east of Box Elder summit and went south connecting to and down Box Elder Trail. Took us 6.5 hours.

This was my first time on the trail. As of yesterday, it will take breaking trail for the final two miles to get to the summit. I wasn't willing to go further than the tracks went. There was a wind slab just before "the meadow" that I wasn't willing to cross, as well as some other evidence of snow instability along the way. I wanted to write this review to let people know that this trail is probably a ski/mountaineering adventure and not a hike at this point (probably from about mile 4) until next season. In addition, I was glad I had microspikes on my shoes after the first mile. It was intermittent ice/snow and mud for a couple miles and then straight snow after that.

very difficult hike. Be wary the trail goes right and up the side but we ended up scrambling in the shale. if anyone finds a turquoise beaded earring it belonged to my dear friend who has passed away.

Hardest hike of the summer! But I had the place to myself and the views were worth it! Lots of different terrain and scenery!

love this hike ALOT.

Really good view, really steep. Good warm up for upper bells reservoir in my opinion. West slabs scramble is a lot more adventurous, but couldn’t find anywhere to rate.
