Lots of switchback at the beginning. Gradual climb to Elephant Rock. Trail well packed from heavy used. Didn't need to use snowshoes or chains. Didn't go all the way down do the cave because the snow was so deep

Great little snowshoe hike in winter for all levels. Easily accessible from Emigration Canyon Road. Scenic views/overlooks along the way.

Great little snowshoe hike in winter for all levels.

My husband and I completed this hike on December 15.

Initially, We planned on doing a canyon hike that morning, but were thwarted due to a the road being inaccessible. So we scrambled to find another hike in the area, and ended up doing Flag Rock!

This hike is steep and narrow much of the way.... definitely not ideal for young children. So steep and strenuous, in fact, that we stopped several times to take off layers of clothes!

The trail was a mix of snow and mud, so we were glad we had our snow cleats. You could probably make it with some sturdy boots, but the cleats really helped us grip on the steep uphill portions.

From the top, the views of the valley are predictable but decent if you're into cityscape views . It's definitely nice to have a destination to hike to. There is a nice bench at the top to take a rest.

We'd recommend this hike for anyone looking for a decent workout!

I have enjoyed this trail for over 20 years during every season. Easy and perfect for bike, run, walk and the fam.

This is a great trail for a Sunday walk. I love to add it to any of my runs too.

Well marked hiking area. Falls are about 2 miles in on the left of the trail. You have to scramble a bit to the upper fall and pools. The remainder of the route just goes to the opposite trail head. As others have said the falls are nothing spectacular, but the hike is easy and there are lots of routes to explore.

Great trail any time of year, once you get to the top there are great 360 views. If you feel like going a bit further once you are towards the top, there is a trail that takes you to the next peak, Oats Peak.

Beautiful and not hard. Mostly full sun exposure, we were happy temperatures were 80. Sunscreen a must. Highly recommend!

Beautiful views!

Pretty cool hike. Can be cold at the top but the view is very nice

Tough to find....... well worth it:))

It was a good hike, beautiful. The trail head is hard to spot, but here’s a tip: it is right where the map leads you. It’s off to the side of a big brown sign, there is a faint trail. I started the hike at 6:00 pm after school one day. I’m 16, in high school, and I did the hike alone. I simply hiked, didn’t jog, and reached the top at 6:40 pm. It was very steep for the first half, probably a 40 degree incline. It was beautiful at sunset though, absolutely amazing. Will most likely do again with friends. Only tips I would give is stretch your calves before you start because it’s a killer. The trail is a little roughly marked for the first little bit, but just follow the signs. Four stars because of how rough and i kept it was. But great.

Camped at the lake

Trail is only open Thursday thru Monday and has gated access.

My friends and I hiked this trail. We couldn’t find the mine but we made it to the top. The last part of the trail was very steep and muddy. The trailhead is marked by a sign addressing hunters. It says it’s an archery only area. There were quite a few hunters, which we didn’t like but there’s nothing to do about that. The views on the trail were amazing especially with the fall color change.

We had a beautiful, clear morning- stunning views, good workout!

Awesome trail! To go to upper falls, drive on to that parking lot. After crossing the bridge you have a choice. If you go right you will see the building with graffiti. This is the main trail behind the building
. If you go slightly left instead you will see the pink ribbon trail. This is a lot less steep and rocky. Much easier.

A beautiful, short hike. Lots of flowers, bees, and birds in the late spring and a few small meadows and lookouts. The main overlook is stunning and there is a flat space at the top perfect for a picnic. There is also a meadow half way up where we relaxed and had some snacks. If you turn off the trail occasionally there are some little overlooks along the way.

A great hike for beginners, kids, and those looking to take a short trip into nature.

Underrated trail very close to SLC. The views are gorgeous, and in the fall the colors are amazing on the second half of the trail.

Gorgeous and quick! Must do trail

Easy (quick) escape to nature. Beautiful hike and drive

Multiple trail options. I went up to a trail just above where the map track go up that seems to be well used. I came down a trail marked with pink ribbon that is not a very good trail.

Beautiful late afternoon hike with fall colors and great views of mountains and valley. Relatively easy and quick hike to summit. Heavily used trail.

We took our two young children in a stroller (the whole trail is paved) on this walk and they really enjoyed it. There was alot for them to see including fruit trees, some of the animals from lagoon, and a large bridge. The trail is well maintained including trash cans and picnic tables along the way.

Fun trail (once you find it). The hike is quite challenging, due to the length of steep upward hiking. The footing is not technical our difficult, just the steepness of the hike. If you like the feeling of hiking straight up a steep Mountain, you will love this hike.

This trail was very clean and wide at sections. You are deceived at first by a big mountain that is just the small peak before the actual Valencia peak. make sure to bring hiking poles, slippery on the way down.

Great views with a relatively easy and short ascent. Some very steep sections toward the end but all in all it is a pretty doable hike. A little hazy still from the fires but the views were still comparable to those you would get on Squaw.
