Loved this trail it was so beautiful ♥️♥️

This trail has a lot of shade, and although it gains a lot of altitude, the switchbacks are long and fairly gentle. There are some parts where you have to scramble up rocks, and it is a narrow trail. We started at 10am on a Tuesday morning, and it wasn’t very crowded. It took us until 1:15pm to make it to the first view of the Valley. We stopped there because we were in a bit of a time crunch. We didn’t make it back down until 3pm! The person who mentioned making it up in 40 minutes deserves a slow clap. My middle two have autism and hike slowly and need lots of breaks. They loved the trail but did feel like it was quite long. In general kids aren’t super pumped about hiking to an overlook, but if you’re trying to decided between this hike and Rattlesnake Gulch up Millcreek Canyon, I’d say Rattlesnake is better—shorter and better view, though it does feel steeper. P.S. The leaves are changing like crazy, but it’s in a dry, crispy sort of way. Still pretty though.

The views are worth it but the path near the top is a little tricky with all those boulders to cross. I really enjoyed Bloods Lake. I would go again just for that area alone however the dog poop bags were very unpleasant to have to pick up. So disgusting! Please pick up after your pets. Do NOT leave the bags on the side to pick up later because you may forget and it pollutes the area and makes it unpleasant for hikers walking by when they are trying to enjoy the scenery. Thanks!

Not busy. Pretty rocky in spots. Stay to the right on the board walk to find trail head. Lots of shade. Enjoyable, relatively easy hike

First time in SLC and took this trail. Quick hike and breathtaking views of the valley. Highly recommend it.

The views are as good as it gets! We hiked on Labor Day, so lots of hikers and dogs. Not terribly strenuous and only took a few hours. The water at the lake above was cold and refreshing to swim in. I’ll definitely hike again with my dog.

We loved the hike and the tour! We took our 3 year old and 1 year old and they loved it.

great views but tough. this hike will let you know what your fitness level is, for sure. I'm no speed hiker and it took me about 3 hours to complete.

This has become a regular hike. enjoy the view and quick access. also always friendly people on the trail.

This one is a fun and everyday type hike. Beautiful views of downtown and the two mountain ranges. Also, at the peak there is great history of the landscape of the valley and how the city was developed overtime.

Lovely hike to a beautiful waterfall. i enjoyed hiking by the stream and seeing all the beautiful little cascades of water and mini waterfalls. We started early but I can imagine when it is hot the first part would be a beast! The information we read said dogs were welcome if on a leash...I saw lots of dogs and none of them were on a leash! The dog poop along the trail left by inconsiderate dog owners was a real distraction to this beautiful trail! Come on dog owners pick up after your dogs or don't use this trail!

I love this trail

Great hike. We had to go up the “gulley” since a marvelous full grown bull moose decided to block the trail. There was no way to convince the big guy to move.

Pretty beautiful; enjoyed it. Great hike for a date with someone who isn’t that outdoorsy.

Great little hike. Go early, or forget about getting a parking spot!

Pretty hike through aspen trees. The beginning is pretty steep, but the hike is so short it's really no big deal. The lake is pretty and if you sit there quietly you will see Moose! We saw 5!

Good trail! You can either go for some time or a quick trail run!

is nice place

It took me 20 minutes at a moderate pace to go up and a little more than 20 minutes down. It's a bit rocky in some places, so if you're not confident on your footing, it feels slippery. It seems to always be crowded at the top.

One of my favorite hikes the way up is amazing and the caves are even cooler!

This was a beautiful hike but you now have to pay 6 dollars to park at the base of the hike or walk 2.2 miles to get to the hike.

Went on this trail last Friday and really enjoyed it!!! the lake was beautiful at the end of the hike and was perfect to relax at before heading down. the view was amazing and hoping to get back at it soon.

Our first hike as a young family in the Wasatch Range, and we loved it! Perfect for folks looking for an easier hike. My wife and I were able to take our 5-month old on the entire trek using a Bjorn baby carrier without any trouble. She loved the mountain air!

I like the trail, a little challenging but not too bad. The view is awesome, way better than I expected. Someone build a seat and a small table with rocks

Awesome hike. Absolutely beautiful on the peaks!

Easy, scenic hike. First things first, parking is along the side of the road, but it’s easy to miss if you don’t know where it is. Although it’s a quick hike up, it’s really steep. Basically no switch backs and just straight up. Even so, only takes around 20 minutes. Once you get to the lake (which is small), the view is beautiful. Lots of aspens and a good view of Solitude. The ducks here are friendly, they swam right over to me, I assume because they expected food. I also saw 2 huge moose, and I went around 1. Good hike if you’re looking for something quick and scenic.

Great hike to a beautiful waterfall.

The end was worth the hike! Not so scenic on the way but the top is worth it. Interesting surprise :)
