this trail has some beautiful views! only ONE spot about a mile and a half in had shade, and there were a lot of pesky bugs toward the top. definitely bring lots of sunscreen, bug spray, and water. the views are worth it.

Very hot! Go early. We got down about 10am and it was already unforgiving. Stunning views all along. Nice short jaunt.

We hiked this trail on the morning of July 4th and were essentially alone. Definitely do this one early as there is no shade after about 8 am. The trail was well marked and easy to follow. View of the lake to the west was fantastic in morning light. We saw the largest covey of chukars I’ve ever seen, a couple mike deer, a cottontail rabbit and various lizards and birds. The bugs were pretty obnoxious, from grasshoppers to biting flies to spiders hanging out in webs strung across the trail (we literally “broke trail” through countless spider webs on one section of trail). A little bug spray should help with the biters. We walked the loop in about 1.5 hours.

Listen, this is a hike for those of you who like spider webs bigger than you, flying bugs the size of your fist, rattle snakes and lots and lots of extremely fascinating piles of brown dirt. Oh, and for those who like seeing bison - nary a one to be seen. The pro: the lake is beautiful if you can ignore repugnant smell emanating from it.

This is a hard from the start it is a lot of going up. I started at 7:30 P.M. on a Thursday so there was no one on the trail. All I heard most of the way up was the buzz of the dragonflies. I was able to keep a avg. pace of 2 mph on the way up and was able to make it to the top by sunset which was the plan (wanted to take some sun set pictures). It does get steep but if you have some trekking poles you can just put your butt into low gear, and you will make it. Great views from the top like everyone has said well worth going. It was an almost full moon, so It was not to bad on the way down still had a head lamp. I did run into a porcupine on the way down so if you are hiking in the evenings just be aware, they are out there. Never fear of not making it to the top, always fear not trying for tomorrow is a new day. See you out on the trail!

Loved this trail. Started early so no bugs. When we got to the antenna at mile marker 3, we went left but at some point the trail ended and maybe we needed to scramble up the rocks? We turned back and went the other way. Definitely hard in some spots but manageable if you take your time. Bring plenty of water.

Great trail with beautiful views of Salt Lake. We did a bit more than Elephant Head for a total of 12.5 miles. The first/last 2.5 miles are flat. As we approached the hills, we never felt like the incline was too much, even in 90 degree heat. Lots of flat parts. We didn’t love the scenery when our back was to the Lake, but enjoyed this hike a lot. No shade - however we didn’t have trouble with bugs. Saw lots of lizards though. For a Saturday morning/afternoon, we were surprised to only encounter 4 other people.

I love this trail. Perfect for beginner mountain bikers, but equally enjoyable for a leisurely stroll or a mellow trail run. Few rocks, compacted soil, beautiful scenery. Based on previous reviews, it seemed like the bugs might have calmed down, but that was not the case today. The first half of the trail (we went counter-clockwise) we didn't see many gnats or flies, maybe due to the slight breeze. When we stopped at the top/halfway point, the little black biting flies swarmed us like poop. They seemed unfazed by bug spray. Those little buggers let up slightly when we started moving, but they pestered us for the rest of the hike. Got the sunburn of my life today, make sure you use lots of sunscreen.

I should have known better than to tackle this on a sunny, hot day. I started early, 6:20am, but without any shade on the trail it was too hot fast. Otherwise it’s a good workout with beautiful views of the Salt Lake and the Island. My third time going up. Normally I get to watch the Big Horn Sheep but not this time. No biting bugs.

A nice easy trail. My friend and I were alone on the trail. Exposed but had a nice breeze. Some bugs so wear bug spray. Beautiful views.

Great views but the one that is worth it is the final stop at the peak. Definitely worth the effort. Absolutely no shade so bring water and sun tan lotion if you burn easily. It starts off steep right away but don’t give up as there are a few relatively easy sections along the way

I loved this trail. The views were just stunning. When you get to the radio tower make a right if you're a beginner, left side is sketchy. The trail is a bit tough but once you make it to the peak you'll feel accomplished and the way back is all down hill. 10/10 would hike again.

Great views and rock formations along the way. Chukar abound. Loose gravel in spots. Overall fun experience.

I went the wrong way once hitting the 3 mile marker. The trail to the right lead up to the peak more smoothly! $15 for a car to enter. Hard hike up but went quick back down! 360 views at the top. No bugs at all today!

Great trail that had my two year old put up half of it with her little legs. It was nice and easy for my 11 and 7 year old, even my wife.
