you can tell this is not one of the more hiked trails. a lot of over growth still nice trail.

great hike with a great view of the valley.

Gets your calves burning. Great for dog, please don’t bring your non-dog friendly dogs though and let them off leash. Please just be considerate of people with dogs on leash just trying to get one with nature.

Great for kids and the whole fam.

Great out and back with fantastic views of SLC. Really green, even in late summer. If you’re a birder, great high elevation coniferous forest is likely great in the morning. With only ~1000ft elevation gain, going up isn’t difficult and switchbacks aren’t bad. About 65% of the trail is shaded which is great. We hiked this mid-day in August, sunny spots were hot, but plenty of shade. Every group we ran into that afternoon was all women, get it ladies!! Not in any rush, this took us about 2.5hrs. Do be aware that there is a $3/car area use fee on the way out

We started early in the morning and was a great start to our day! Great view of city. The smoky haze made the Great Salt Lake barely visible. The couch was comfy ;o)

Stick to the south trail. Follows a stream the entire way. There are some trout if you fish the deeper pools. At 1.2 miles there is a fun swing attached to a tree about 20 feet high. Lots of fun for kids. The next 1.5 miles is gorgeous with a waterfall around the 3 mile mark. One of my favorite trails around

This is an amazing trail. It’s pretty steep but the views when you reach the top are amazing!!!

Went on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and there were a handful of groups so I felt like I had the place largely to myself. Several stretches suitable for running back. Right now it was pretty smoky :(

Just a mile from my hotel, I decided to go and try this hike. Not easy but not impossible! The trail was in good condition and the views from the top are worth the effort! Can’t wait to do this again.

Maybe it’s because I just got home from hiking in the Redwoods but I thought it was an alright hike. Many will disagree, I’m sure. Beautiful view from the top. Really crowded during sunset on a Friday night. No trail signs along the way so it was a bit confusing.

Beautiful lookout.

good walk

Great trail that gets narrow at some parts. Nice views of the city at the top.

45 min to the top, we set out around 6:30pm so plenty of shady spots on the trail. Nice view of the city.

Plenty of shade, good views, it doesn’t cross any rivers or streams and that’s a good thing sometimes. I’ll be back to enjoy this short hike again sometime.

Great trail. Went up to Thayne peak. Pretty steep the last 300m. But what a view. Worth the extra effort.

Nice little hike for late July. Went right in the middle of the day (3pm) with 99 degree temps but wasn’t over exhausted and got a great workout in.

No one at the top and we spent 20 min there. Only saw a few people on the way down.

Great views of the city!

Busy trail, very shaded. I wouldn’t recommend it for young children. Awesome view at the top.

7/22 - Pretty busy (but went on Founders Day). Hot but was about 50% shaded. A decent view for the effort exerted.

Best view of SLC you will find.

great time with kids. A little longer than at haff thought but pretty scenery .

This is a great trail! It was a little overgrown in places but not bad. I would recommend it!

Great hike with a mostly shaded trail. Tons of switch backs with gradual elevation gain. My Strava shows this as 4.8 miles RT. Pretty views along the way and a great view of the valley at the top.

Awesome trail. It’s gorgeous, plenty of water and waterfalls, there are fire pits all along the trail and a nice big waterfall near the end. If you go far enough as well there is a fun swing. Definitely a fun weekend hike.

A nice moderate trail, a little bit steep for some people who aren’t a big hiker but nice view of Salt Lake City when you reach the top. Nice during sunset hikes as well.

Favorite hike on mid days. shady and fun. did see a rattlesnake about mid way.l

This is a great trail to take your dog on! There are a few places your dog can go wading in the water as well so it's nice on those warmer days.

Lots of switchbacks!! But overall fun trail with the pup!
