Trails worth hiking again Map

I did this trail in February and it was cold enough to have gorgeous ice on the falls, but warm enough that the trail was either slushy, or super icy. I was so glad I had my spikes to hike the gorgeous last section that was steeper and so slippery. The trail did not feel stressful at all until I braved walking closer to the falls and then I took it very slow, but it was definitely doable. Here is my blog post if you want to see pictures. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/i-did-this-hike-first-week-in-february.html?m=1

Excellent hike back in time!

on Red Pine Lake Trail

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

Steep first .4 miles. Fairly nice walk around the lake. Some snow on north facing trials. Overall a very pleasant hike.

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

If you want to enjoy the sunset in a quiet place, you have to try it.

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Great views of the city!

Very steep. Went a few days ago and is currently covered in snow and some ice. This hike is basically you climbing the entire time until you reach the lake and then climbing back down. Would not recommend toddlers due to steep stairs and ice. The lake was semi frozen but still beautiful. Gave my thighs a workout for sure.

Great city view, try it night time...

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that I did this hike in early September. Went with some friends to hike this on Labor day. Quite possibly the worst day to do so. The parking lot closest to the lake was filled, so we had to park at the ski lodge. We could have taken a shuttle from there to the real trailhead, but the wait was 45min+, so we started our hike from there. Very sunny, hot, and exposed for most of it, so be prepared. Also, there were so many people! This would have been much nicer if the trail wasn't so backed up. Didn't stay long at the lake because of how many others were already there. Other than the heavy traffic, this would have been a nice, short, enjoyable hike.

Loved this trail. Lots of beautiful scenery, and in late July the wildflowers were even more beautiful than the mountains! Ran into a moose sitting in the middle of the trail! It’s a bit of a challenge, but incredibly worth the effort!

took my pups up during a storm, beautiful views, trail easily disappears during thr winter so its easy to get turned around in the evening hours but still a great hike.

This is the steeper but shorter trailhead. It’s less popular so I have found it easier to get parking.

A lotta bang for your buck on this trail. This is the easier of the two routes to access Bells Canyon. Parking is tight though. There are a couple overflow lots.

Surprisingly delightful along the stream. Did this in early spring to take the long way to Lisa Falls. There’s some historic structures along the route, some have unfortunately been graffitied and trashed

Great hike with amazing views of the Valley. Great workout and worth making it all the way to the top.

Still muddy. Gorgeous view. I expected natural rock formations as the furniture but it’s stacks of rocks in the form of chairs. A bit steep. Definitely a moderate trail.

Love this hike. It's very rewarding, steep and strenuous. Great workout! There was hardly any snow last week amd we didn't use spikes.

The headlamp hike to Jacks Mt last weekend was good. I love the tributes at the summit. Heart warming stuff. I decided to proceed to the to the ridge line behind to the east. WORST MILE EVER. I ran out of deer trails altogether and found out that rocks are hard and shins are softer. My own mistake. Socked in at the top so no payoff. I'll turn around after summiting Jacks next time.

Good short hike! Only took me around 35 minutes and I’m a beginner. A little steep on the way up but worth the view!

Beautiful. we loved the lake, the scenery, the rocks, all of it! there were some icy patches, but that's to be expected in the winter.

trail is dry now. 2.14.18

Loved it! Steep in some parts and a bit of a rocky climb at the end but the view is definitely worth it. Definitely recommend going earlier in the day

Spectacular views ever improving as you're always gaining altitude. I couldn't get to the Upper Falls because of heavy ice and snow, but the trek up to the Lower Falls was rewarding enough: beautiful scenery all the way through. Best thing about hiking up there in the winter: no crowds. Truly worth it!

Fun little hike. Steep, but short. Cool history behind it and nice view of the city!

The weather was perfect today, we hung around the reservoir for a while before heading up to the falls. It is so beautiful up there. The ice made for a difficult climb to the falls. We were forced to turn back about a half mile before the falls because the ice was too slick for my 5 year old to safely climb. we slipped and fell several times coming down, but overall it was awesome. We did this last year when my son was 4, and he made it to the top without any problems, so I wouldn't consider this as rated hard. It is a steady incline all the way up, but it's not bad.

Great trail for a quick hike. Beautiful view of the Salt Lake Valley!
