    I loved this hike. Spring in the Mountains is so beautiful. The trees mostly have leaves now. This trails goes through beautiful groves of conifers, maples, gamble oaks, and aspens. There are a good number of flowers blooming now and many more are just starting to grow. There are beautiful views of the mountains for most of the hike. When you reach the saddle where you meet the Dry Creek trail, you can see down into Alpine. The view from the top was slectacular. I could see all the way to the Uintas to the east. there were great views of the valleys to the west including Utah Lake and even a part of the Great Salt Lake. There were great views of the surrounding Wasatch range including Lone Peak and mount Timpanogas. The weather was perfection today with clear blue skies and very little wind. There were only a few spots I had to cross very small patches of snow. My trekking poles were a help with that. The part of the trail that makes the final ascent up Box Elder Peak is very steep and a bit slippery because the trail itself is not well defined. It's more like a maze of very lightly worn tracks from previous hikers through the wooded parts and other rocky areas where it's a scramble. If you stay right on or very close to the ridgeline you will make it up. In general, almost all the trail is very rocky and many of the rocks are loose. I would definitely agree this is a hard hike. It is lightly traveled. I was on the trail most of the day and only crossed paths with a dozen people.
