A nice trail with great views but waaay too busy. The trail is packed all the way so I really did not need the snowshoes.

Quarry trail parking was covered in packed down snow. Parking across the street was clear. About 3” of snow on the start of the trail, probably 4-6 at the top. You may still be okay without spikes, but I would’ve been faster if I had hem with me. Great option for a regular winter hike.

Fun little climb !

I followed the tracks of another kind soul who did the majority of the post-holing up to the summit.

Great views of Kesler to the South.

My boyfriend and I did this hike and loved the views along the way. It’s a moderate hike with multiple trails labeled as “Thor’s Hideout” that weave and cross paths throughout the hike that can add to the experience. The trail head is labeled “Red Hollow”.

Beautiful hike. Steep at the beginning and the end but the midsection is mild. Views at the end were great. Trail is icy in spots so make sure you have proper footwear and/or poles. Trail was a little busier than I would have liked but worth it regardless. There is a $3 fee to access the canyon and dogs have to be leashed on even days.

A great running spot. Easy access, not too hard, reward with a good view in the end.

There is some trail erosion. Can be crowded over the weekend.

Such a beautiful hike! The leaves were just turning colors and there was a lot of shade.

Perfect low elevation hike while the weather permits. No snow on the trail nor at the top, which is why it was perfect for this time of year.

I hiked the upper portion for 1.7 miles until it comes back up to the road. Starts just below the ruins of the old Mill. Loved this trail. Very peaceful and a gradual climb to get your heart going a bit. I only saw three mountain bikers and five bikers on this trail. I think I will start at the bottom for a snow shoeing adventure this winter.

Clocked it at just over 3.6 miles, so it's a bit longer than the description claims. Cold and damp up there today with some light snow. Very easy to lose the trail especially towards the very top when you have to make that left turn, fallen leaves are obscuring some of the trail. Follow the app GPS to make sure you go up and to the left for the last stretch. There is a bit of leftover icy snow in the higher elevations on some stretches. I brought spikes since I know it's steep. Saw some fresh moose tracks in the path of the first meadow.

Fun trail, dog friendly. Took lots of pictures and it took us about 2 hours.

nice slot canyon at the upper end of hike. beautiful foilage for fall colors.

This is a fee area- costs $3 per vehicle for an okay hike.

Good workout going up. Beautiful view at the top. The trailhead does not list the hike but start and follow signs to “mill B” trail. When you get up the mountain most of the way, there is a subtle fork in the trail, take the fork that goes south or left along the ridge.

amazing moderate hike with spectacular views of cliffs and narrows. The sculpted sandstone formations are breathtaking.

We stayed the night in Cedar City after visiting Bryce and Zion. This is the PERFECT hike to end the weekend before heading back to Vegas to fly out. This is a pretty easy hike. There are no markings but you can easily follow the trail. The water follows the trail most of the way so if it’s a fresh rain it may be pretty muddy. Fitbit said we did 4.93 in 3:49 with numerous stops.

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!

Great walk with the first snow.

It was an ok trail.
Not much to see.
we'll find a better hiking spot next time.
$3.00 to hike it.
The dogs enjoyed.

Good shorter hike to get a great workout

Awesome hike, but it is certainly not 8.9 miles like other posts state. This is a good preparer for something like Jacobs ladder to lone peak. The last mile is definitely the steepest. Easy to get lost also. I did this one alone and there was no one around after the second waterfall. It’s pretty tough, but rewarding.

1 hr up. 30 down push hard for a great leg day. great fall views

I've hiked the east face trail of Grandeur several times and I love it. For me, it's the perfect combination of length + elevation gain that gives me a great workout but I'm not exhausted when it's over.

The parking is not great, however. There's only room for about 8 cars at the trailhead, then you have to park out on the main road which adds about a half mile to your hike.

Well maintained trail but no great views until the top. Pretty steep incline throughout most the hike, so you will definitely feel your legs burn. Overall a pretty fun hike!

Hiked w/ my 9 yr old son, 2 hrs up, 1 hr down. Well-maintained, heavily travelled trail, smooth and steady climb. Good for serious trail runners (very few rocks/roots). Dog-friendly. Not much of a view until you get to the top. No cell reception until top ridge. You CAN PARK up past the picnic areas but there are ONLY 7 spots at the trailhead. They were all taken on this hot sunny weekday afternoon, but it saves you 0.4 miles.

Gorgeous fall colors all along the way and spectacular view at the summit. I would classify this as a hard, not moderate. I consider myself in shape but this mountain kicked my butt! Temps were just perfect. It took us 3 hours 40 minutes. Watch the tree roots on the way down, I took a nasty spill.

In spite of being along the main road a lot of the time, this was a pretty and enjoyable trail! Lots of shade and some sun. Gets really good toward the highest point/furthest in. The river of beautiful and there are a lot of huge rocks. Also, plenty side trails too. The trail continues at the end of this trail, after the bad ass remains of a building, but I didn’t try it...yet!

Left this morning later than I had wanted to - around 9. I clocked around 4 hours 45 min round trip with 10.4 miles. That’s with breaks (I didn’t stop much) including a visit to the lower falls. It was a nice day, very sunny and the leaves were changing. I’d say I was in the shade about half the time

The trail starts out with a moderate climb that gets pretty steep up to the waterfall trail fork. Continuing on the main trail it continues its steep pitch for about a mile or so. The trail then levels off for a bit and meanders through a quiet forest - my favorite part of the trail. After passing over a makeshift bridge over the river (running from the drainage you are shooting for), the trail goes south up a steep cliffy section by the river. You top out and you are in the drainage you want to be in. Follow the maintained trail for about a half mile. You’ll run into a boulder field here with almost no indication of where the trail starts up again. This is where I lost the trail. By lost, I mean I really lost the trail up until I got to the reservoir and bushwhacked through high shrubbery (in shorts) with the occasional class 3 section. I was on the wrong ridge and wrong side of the river but it did get me to where I wanted to be. See my GPS track for what not to do. To stay on the trail, stay left in the boulder field but not too left. I hung too left. Also, be smart and backtrack if the trail doesn’t seem right and check your GPS. I assumed the trail was just poorly maintained but ended up finding the real trail (well maintained) on the way down. Anyways, I made it up in about 2 hours 30 min with getting off track.


The reservoir was low but awesome. I will be visiting the reservoir again soon via The Beatout and I’m looking forward to it.

The way down was rough of course with all the elevation gain. If you don’t have poles, get some.

Not an easy hike, but really fun. One of the most scenic areas I’ve ever been to. For the hike up (after the waterfall) I was in complete solitude. I only saw one group when I was on my way down. Not sure if they were planning on hiking up all the way.

Highly recommend

Definitely bring your dog on ODD numbered days so you don’t have to keep them out of the way of mountain bikers. There are a lot of bikers, runners, and hikers on this rail. Definitely recommend going in the morning (ie. avoid the heat and crowd). Per usual, there’s noticeably more cars/bikes/people as it gets towards 9am+. Pay $3 to a person in a booth on the way out (back toward I-215).

There are two parts to this hike. The first 0.7 miles is Rattlesnake Gulch- shaded and uphill. It’s a workout.

Take a left at the sign. The second part is 1.0 mile on Pipeline Trail with a nice view of the canyon and then the city/valley. Path is narrower and more windy (as in blowing air, not as in curvy), shade harder to come by. (You’ll see a Wasatch National Forest sign at about 1.4 miles total. Go another 0.3 to see a big metal tube thing and a place to sit and enjoy the view for a bit.)

Going up took us 45 minutes with short breaks going uphill. Going down took us 35 minutes with a bunch of stops to move aside for bikers.
