    Hook em Horns reviewed Upper Piney River Falls Trail

    14 days ago

    Really great hike! As close to perfect fall aspen colors today as one could expect. Don’t be discouraged by the warnings about the dirt road if you only have a “normal” car but be prepared to take it slow and let others pass in that case (disclaimer: we drove an AWD SUV

    Very nice and well-maintained trail with many opportunities to enjoy the aspen at their peak fall colors. Runs alongside a creek much of the way too, and although within the ski area I would say the upp er 2/3 feels like the middle of nowhere. Definitely recommended. Note AllTrails map and distance stat INCLUDES the short “5 Senses” trail required to get to the Beaver Lake trailhead proper, which I think AllTrails was right to do.

    Words and pictures can’t do the lake or Spouting Rock justice....truly stunning. The bus system was VERY efficient, punctual both ways, and full. Highly recommended. Definitely take the extra few steps up the left side to Spouting Rock too and walk under/behind the waterfall.

    Great hike and perfect weather...nice fall colors as I would call the aspen at “early peak” today.. We hiked up and took the gondola down for what it’s worth. Note the trail is really a bit over 3.5 miles not 3.1 as measured gondola station to station (officially this trail ends 0.3 miles before the upper gondola station, and an extra “jig” near the top due to construction probably accounts for the rest). Highly recommended. Unlike some other reviewers here, I thought the trail was very clearly marked at many points along the way.

    Definitely worth a stop! The waterfall alone is worth the short walk. There are also picnic tables right at the parking lot next to the stream for an easy picnic lunch. Parking lot is one minute from the road at the most....

    We hiked this trail on Oct 1. Path cuts through and near aspen groves or pine forest the entire length. Steady climb with a long uninterrupted stretch in the middle of the route that was fairly steep walking. Beautiful wide open view in two points along the way as well as at the summit. As a others have noted the trail signs never call this trail by the name here so keep your AllTrails app open at the trailhead and at the trail split after about a half mile. Cell coverage throughout (AT&T). Great trail!

    Great trail! We loved the constant sound of the creek and the high canyon walls either side. The climb is broken up by numerous short stretches of flat (or almost flat) which often allow you to catch your breath a bit without stopping. Highly recommended and easy to access.

    A beautiful hike through a huge aspen grove. 5 starts for hitting it around the peak of the yellowing leaves today. My Apple Watch called it 4.7 miles from the trailhead to the bridge and back.

    Did this trail yesterday (Sunday)....great hike and stunning views on top. Was great to have a bit of early season snow on the ground and trees from the day before. A little muddy here and there as a result but no big deal.

    Did this trail yesterday afternoon as the aspen are beginning to peak. Absolutely breathtaking views, especially behind you once you get past about the halfway point to the falls. Falls are nice too but the yellowing aspen steal the show right now!
