My husband and I completed this hike on August 18. We chose it because its short and flat.... perfect to do in my knee brace.

This is a nice, quick hike that's close to town! It's flat and covered in wood chips the entire way. It has some nice views of the Wasatch Front (and even a bench to sit on to enjoy the view), as well as some informational plaques about the local plants, geology, etc. There is zero shade, so bring plenty of water!

My husband and I completed this trail on August 20, 2018. We chose this trail because it was short and flat, and therefore perfect to hike in my knee brace.

This trail is decent for a quick walk, but nothing spectacular.... no water features, no wildlife. It might be a nice hike for seniors or young children (except there is a pretty steep downhill section of about 100 feet, so be careful). Had some good views of the Wasatch Front.

This trail could be better marked. It intersects with several other trails, so we had to check the app several times to make sure we were on the right path.

Nothing super special, but a nice easy hike

Fun trail and very close if you live in the Salt Lake Valley. You weave in and out of the woods on this trail so about 1/2 the time you are out in the sun so bring a hat. Didn’t find the horse manure on the trail to be a problem at all.

The trail itself is very beautiful. There is frequent shade and plenty of foliage, the incline isn’t steep, and it wasn’t very crowded. It’s virtually all sand, and because it’s a horse trail there’s plenty of horse droppings in various stages of decomposition all over the trail, so we didn’t complete the whole trail because my 8-year-old son was too grossed out. There are several trails all parallel to each other at this site, and none of them are really marked so you either have to use GPS or make your best guess that you’re on the trail you actually wanted to be on. On the way back we somehow ended up on a narrow, fairly steep trail instead of on the gently incline we came down. I don’t think we’ll be doing this one again.

Very pretty and easy

We started on Flander’s Loop Trail and veered off to another trail that I’m not able to find on this app. Overall it was a really great hike. The upper part is woodchips, the lower part is sand and dirt. The sand makes it hard to walk at times but we still enjoyed ourselves. We spotted a badger, lizard, red ants, and black beetles. There was a fair amount of horse poop in the lower trails.

good beginners conditioning ride, a little bit of down hill, also good for beginners, fun ride along the stream and through it a couple times, which my 12 year old enjoyed.

I love the view ... Great moment to connect to Mother Nature.

The trail was easy, to walk around and to navigate through (without signs). The reason I gave it 2 stars is that every couple of feet (and I'm not exaggerating) there would be animal droppings, likely from horses, in the middle of the trail. It's not small droppings, but big piles of droppings. It was hard to have to constantly look out for them and walk around them so we didn't get any souvenirs with us. We turned around when the smell became unbearable. I don't think we would go back again.

I took my dog with me and he got his paw hurt bc of the pieces of mulched wood on the ground and he had to be carried I didn’t love this hike there wasn’t many trees around

I went a bit later in the evening around 8:00p during the week. Somewhat creepy only because it’s a secluded, quiet, brushy area and the sun was going down. The water crossings makes it a bit difficult to trail run. The trail consisted of wood chips, some sand, some rocks, some paved areas.
Once you’re down into the park, there are no trail signs etc. I only ended up running for a little over a mile before I psyched myself out. Would be a nice trail during the day, shady.

From a mountain biking perspective, this trail was pretty poor. The trail down by the creek bed wasn't bad, but was un-rideable due to the constant water crossings. The trail up from the creek reeked of horse manure and was nothing but sand

Fun, easy hike for early spring when mountain trails have snow. There was a cute Easter hunt going on for kids. Pleasant experience!

its nice and relaxing for me and my 6 yr old son.and friends.it depends on your mood if you want a challenge or work out.either way your moving and losing some calories.you can go down by the dry river and hike up to the trails.

This was a fun trail with a variety of scenery. Mountains, trees, snow, ice, water. I loved it coming from Phoenix where we don't have a lot other than sand and rock. Not marked but easy to follow with the app. There are a ton of side trails.

As a larger guy and a newb to hiking, I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. There's enough hills to get the heart pumping and equally enough flat spots so you don't feel the need to quit moving. There was a decent amount of droppings from horses and dogs, but it wasn't so bad that you didn't have the majority of the trail available to walk on.

worst. hike.ever. Unless of course you love horse and dog s***. The "hike" is the back of people's homes. So scenic lol. I left and went on a real hike.

I live 2 blocks from the trailhead, so this is my go-to for keeping myself in shape and heat conditioning myself (I'm the crazy person who starts at 1pm when it's hottest). I'm on this trail at least twice a week when I'm not traveling for work. When I have time, I make it a bit more interesting by zig-zagging back and forth between the upper and lower trails, taking all the small connection trails back and forth. I have turned this 6-mile hike into 8 miles many times by doing that.

Took this loop for the first time and boy was it a treat! I loved having a trail that is "easy" not too steep, etc. but still pushes me because of the distance, etc. The one section of the river bed that you had to cross was dried up so it was just rocks, and there were a number or horses but the trail is wide enough you feel safe and nobody is in each other's way. Definitely doing this one again.

The trail is mostly wood chips and sun-exposed which was fine. My gripe was the horse and dog poo along with a dozen side trails that made me had to keep checking my GPS to make sure I was on a legitimate trail. Bathrooms at the TH. One water crossing (take off your shoes) and one bridged water crossing.

We ran it, it was a nice run not too far from the city!

Enjoyable little hike. Perfect if u have kids. If you bring a dog, bring doodie bags, as none are provided. There are restrooms and tables at the trail head

More of a walk, tons of horses and kids out. Dog friendly.

Not really a fan. It's not a mountain hike. I didn't like hiking on a sandy trail and there was horse poop on several parts of the trail

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

great trail for people in the sandy area wanting a quick break from the city

Just a short flat loop. Not much to it.

This is a very wide trail with wood chips for horses much the trail until it gets near the river at the bottom of the draw. Connects to many other trails in the area. Great views of the Wasatch Mountains

I couldn't find any trail signs for the trail so I used the AllTrails route to follow. This surprised me because the trail is shown on a map at the trailhead. Unlike other trails is the area it's much narrower. A small portion of the trails is closed so I had to take a minor detour and connect back up with the trail below the closed area

Saturday, March 04, 2017

Once you get to the actual Fox Point the trail is narrower that all of the other trails in the ares. The Fox Point trail that connects The North Rim trail to the Mountain View trail is marked. However the actual loop trail shown isn't marked so you will need to watch the route on the AllTrails map to follow
