    Kolby Baumgaertner reviewed Bailey Canyon Trail to Jones Peak

    3 months ago

    I don’t know why this trail is so highly rated. The waterfall (if you can call it that) is a mere trickle. This section of the trail (to the waterfall) is overgrown and poorly maintained.

    About a mile up the main trail, there are a couple benches with some lovely views of the city. But the rest of the hike is a real calf-buster—a brutal ascent with switchbacks that never seem to end. Unless you’re just in it for a good workout, I’d skip this one. There are no trees, no shade on this trail. I hiked it in the summertime, and it was almost unbearable.

    The peak does have some great views. But so does nearby Echo Mountain, and that trail has an interesting end point with resort and railroad ruins. If you’d like a good workout on a trail that is easily accessible, I’d recommend Echo Mountain over this.
