Gorgeous views! Well worth the hike.

awesome hike with beautiful views and a great work out. It starts out with switchbacks and the last mile or so really works your gluteus maximus.

Really glad I made the extra effort and went to the end. Snow was pretty deep and would fall through about every 5th step. Last 1/2 mile is steep also. Views on return actually rival the top in my opinion.

We love this trail! Easy access, easy walk! Great for my old dog who is easily tired.

Fairly easy, but pretty stroll along the bluff.

Not part of the park. Separate property. Hours 8a to 4p.

Great little day hike with family. Hiked this with my five year old. We hit the mine first and then continued up to the flag pole. The road to get you close to mine is easy if you have moderate ground clearance.

I love this little trail. Very underrated. I usually don’t see anyone else on it. Views of Little dell and the wasatch. Watch out for moose though.

Great overall hike, connected to other trails for extra miles. Another great winter day on the central coast ;>)...

Most beautiful hike I’ve been on! Highly recommend

This hiking trail, near Salt Lake City, has historical significance as far as the settling of the Salt Lake Valley and the Mormon Pioneer Trail is concerned. This was actually not one of my favorite trails, but may be more scenic in better weather or in the summertime. Video of trail experience: https://youtu.be/0HgYstKvNcc

More of a walk, but great for our 6 month old puppy to start out on!

Beautiful hike! The first half of the trail is easy walking, and a great view is afforded from midway up. The remainder has some steeper areas that require more strenuous hiking. Gorgeous 360 view from the top. No shade anywhere on the trail, would recommend avoiding midday in the summer. Great birding.

There is no reservation required. There is a check in booth, they limit access daily so if it’s nice out come early. Good parking with bathrooms.
Very easy trail, recommend for kids. The first 2 miles is perfect for the kiddos.
No dogs !
After the 2 miles it inclined to windy point, there is a porta potty at the 3 mile marker.
Lots of great scenery, beautiful coves, rock structures.
You can definitely spend the day in this area. Pic nic at one of the state park beaches up the road.

You have to bushwack to reach the true summit.

One of my favorite hikes on the Central coast. It’s a great workout but no scrambling or ridge hiking. Views at the top are incredible. Easy access to Hazard Reef and islay beach.

Grab a burger at House of JuJu in Morro Bay when you are done.

Beautiful trails with sweeping views of the ocean below.

Fun hike with beautiful views. We walked to Disney/Fat Point and then back to the beach access where there was a cool cove to explore. Not many out today, so it was very quiet and serene.

The hike to the top was great, difficult but doable for after holiday sluggishness! LOTS of people when I went. Which is fine but sometimes I prefer more solitude. Some geocaches along the way if you like that. Fossils to spy in the rocks. Leave them there for other hikers. Lots of lovely sagebrush to smell along the way.

Great view!!!!! Worth every minute.

12.24.17. Christmas eve day hike with the family. great day for a hike.

This is the second time I've hiked this trail. We started further north on the Bonneville shoreline trail. In the summer there was a lot of poison ivy near the falls, but cool weather took care of that and you can really see the falls. On a Tuesday morning there aren't many other people on this trail, just some nice deer.

Really fun driving here. Very short easy walk. No need for bug spray in November.

Exactly as described. Nice waterfall at the end, leisurely walk to get there.

For a new hiker this was challenging, but not impossible. Beautiful view of Morro Bay, and depending on when you go you may run into some camp KEEP students!

Easy hike to a big Douglas-fir tree. Pretty views of the canyon and down into Salt lake.

This was a very simple trail with a beautiful ending at the waterfall. Wonderful colors this time of year and the moss growing over the rocks had an amazing cascading waterfall too. So pretty! The entrance was a bit hidden but look for the sign that says Rose Valley Falls. The trail that’s gated off is a fire road.

Not as enjoyable because you are constantly watching for mountain bikers and moving out of their way.

Great trail and awesome view!

Can see both salt lake and Provo valleys. So pretty!!
