This is absolutely one my All Time favorite summits in Utah. I love it because it’s steep and relatively a short 3.3 mile to the top. My personal record to the summit stands at 1 hour 37 min and little under 41 mins to run back down to the trailhead. As of December 8th, I have summited Mt. Olympus 16 times in 2018.

So cool!

Did the old trail up and new trail down on Friday 12/07. This past week the weather was amazing so the hike was great. Started hitting light snow about 3,400 feet which increased with elevation.
Was all packed down though some parts were a little icy. I went without spikes or poles which would have been nice but not a necessity yet. The old trail up was definitely a challenge. I made it to the mailbox in 1:50 so I was hauling. The way down on the new trail took about 2:25 as I was taking my time but could definitely be done faster. Very rewarding hike!!

easy with a great view

We did this hike on Sunday 12/2 between 10am-2pm, the actual road to the hike was uphill and lots of potholes in the beginning but it does get better and turn into an actual road closer to the top of the trail. Snow on the entire trail, gets a bit deeper closer to the top about 1 inch of snow. Not very crowded, saw more people as we were coming down than going up. The last section of the hike is like a mini rock climb to get to the tower you have to climb up some rocks and then climb the ladder to the tower, bring good snow gear if you plan on going to the very top at this time very cold and icy! Great hike overall, one of our favorites. Bring northwest forest pass!!

Hiked this today in the later afternoon. It was lightly snowing at the top which made for a cool experience. I didn’t get to see the epic views due to the clouds/snowing but as I hiked back down it cleared out for a beautiful sunset and you could see the ocean.

Very challenging hike. There's other more beautiful hikes in the area, but the workout is worth it for this one.

The trail is covered in snow about half way up the trail. Crampons and poles recommended if planing to summit.

The trail is covered in snow and can be slippery in quite a few places. If you have spikes or crampons that would be best. Be prepared for the cold and wind with plenty of layers! Saw a lot of people hiking in the dark without headlamps/flashlights, if you’re going later in the day be ready for it to get dark fast on your way down. Gorgeous view at the top!

Easy fun trail

This is a nice, easy trail with a great view of the waterfall!

This is an easy kid and pet friendly hike

Night time hiking trying to break mountaineering boots in. Not a good idea I advise everyone not to try but I did it anyways. This is not my only time going up to check the mail. For as close as a fun hike it is it’s wonderful for conditioning! Old trail up and down this time. The new trail down is about the same time as the old if you do some ruining.

Suspension bridge great bonus.

This one has been on my list and we couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for it (11/18/18). Hiked the new trail up and back down, I don’t think my knees could have taken the old trail from what I hear. Pretty brutal last 1/2 mike until you reach the Peak but no question, worth it all! Gorgeous views of the PNW.

Beautiful view of Mt. Hood from the top, and a terrific spot for a picnic. When we hiked this trail back in March it had a lot of ice and snow, so I would recommend micro spikes and trekking poles. My only complaint is the lack of parking. We parked down at the ski area, and had to walk along the highway; Very unsafe.

I did this hike as a prep hike the weekend before I did Mt. Whitney. It was my first time doing it even though I have hiked all over the Wasatch Front. I was amazed at how majestic this hike is from beginning to end. It's a great hike to do in the late fall and early winter because it starts at a relatively low elevation compared to most other hikes near Salt Lake City/Sandy, Utah. As such there was little to no snow on the trail. I did it in about 5.5 hours (around 3 hours up, 2.5 hours down).

On the last quarterish mile scramble to the summit, I got misdirected and started ascending the wrong way. Luckily, a dude set me in the right direction (thanks Stu!) and I got to the summit to take in the preposterous views of Salt Lake Valley. Early on in the hike, it also forks and one prong of that fork goes down the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I walked down that trail for a few hundred meters before I realized my error (thanks to the AllTrails app).

I highly recommend this hike.

Loved every second, on the way up at least

We did this hike on Mothers Day. We took the old trail up & new trail down..wear proper shoes for the down hill. Amazing accomplishment....hardest
one for me so far

Ice last on north side out of sun
Still quite doable

My dog and I hiked this gorgeous trail today. Super easy, well maintained, awesome suspension bridge across the creek and adjacent to falls, beautiful falls.

Definitely a workout! Did this hike on Monday (11/13) and it was relatively busy at the top from it being a holiday. My phone recorded round trip about 12 miles, but I’m not sure how accurate this is. The last 0.5 miles are a grind but the view from the top is worth it. Watch for ice patches, poles are a good idea. When we hiked a group of hockey players were taking up a fire hydrant, look for it at the top!!

Amazing hike! Can’t wait to come back in summer to splash in the creek.

For how popular this hike is I thought it would be over rated but it’s not. Short but steep and starts that way almost from the get go. Gorgeous view of route 26 fog early in the mornings looking east. Advice is to take the quick humbug trail for excellent views of this. The trail at times can have some mild flowing water in spots but easily avoidable. Views abound after the half way point allowing easy viewing of the coast and many peaks in all directions. Dress warm at the top. Wind likes to funnel up the range.

Very busy trail, but super cool waterfall and bridge. Go when no one else is there (weekday).

Very busy trail. Small parking lot with not many other options to park nearby. Great views of Mt. Hood and surrounding moutains

Quite a difficult hike but worth it! Very beautiful forest.

Absolutely Amazing when you reach the top!

Lovely new trailhead and bridges, much better parking situation though sure to draw even more weekend crowds but on this foggy Fall morning I had the trail to myself. A worker told me the Grand Opening for this new trailhead is this Friday Nov 9th. The new trail veers away from the highway fairly quickly, thankfully. Snow started at 4500' today. About an inch was covering the ridge (Tom, Dick and Harry) making things slick. Highly recommend having boot traction of some kind and trekking poles at this point.

Great Hike.
