Lots of horse poop. You will see lots of houses along parts of the trail.

I’ve never done a hike. Wanted to get outside. This was a good one to start with. It has just enough incline to get my heart rate up but not over exert myself. Will be doing this one again.

The loop part is a narrow sandy trail and is not easy to navigate

It's an urban loop where you forget you are in the city at times. Expect to see horses.

This trail follows the Dry Creek which currently had water in it today. The water comes out of a storm drain half way up the trail so the upper half is dry. When there is water there are multiple stream crossing to negotiate. Some of these crossing have log which several only have small rocks so you will get your feet wet. Lots of trees along the stream bed.

A great hike down in the bottom.of the dell! Several creek crossings, although it was mostly a dry creek bed at the time. Only things I didn't love about this trail were the abundance of horse manure, and the myriad intersecting and splitting trails - very easy to take a wrong turn! Best to hike this trail with the alltrails app running. Otherwise it's a great escape from civilization in the middle of Sandy!

This trail is beautiful up until about a quarter of a mile after the last creek crossing. The last part of the trail is thistle-ridden, but you do get some good views of the mountain. It's difficult to complete this trail until about mid-July because there are multiple creek crossings. The creek is fairly wide and runs swiftly until mid- to end-of-July. The trail is overgrown and there are many trails branching off that lead to private property. I took the wrong trail twice and had to back-track. It would be wise to have the Alltrails map out to avoid getting lost because there are no trail markings.

The creek is still not dry and the trail is not marked very well, with some trails leading you to overgrown areas

The Flanders Point Loop segment was great!! Well maintained path and loved the interpretive signs along it! Just watch out for horse manure...

Recommended for horses, mountain bikers, or taking the dog for a walk if you live around the neighborhood. Not recommended for hiking in the summer in the middle of the day with children, even though it was a relatively easy hike. There was not much to see before it was time to turn around and head back.

Easy-going hike. I added about .3 miles to this loop by getting as close as I could to the pond and walking to the bridge and then turning back. It made the trail more interesting and my kid loves it when we stop and throw rocks in the water.

Great views throughout, but there was always road noise. The Fox Point Loop is sandy and not very long, so kind of not worth the detour.

Gorgeous views of the mountain from this trail and easy enough for small children to complete. I downgraded this to a 4 star trail because the loop that you walk before heading back was very confusing and extremely overgrown and sandy. I had to have the map out while walking the loop to make sure I was on the right path.

I walked this with my 1.5 year old right after walking the Fox Point trail. It offers pretty views of the mountains and surrounding neighborhood. The bench at the end could be replaced (Eagle Scout project, anyone?).

we had a great day doing this hike. 90% of it is a woodchip path and you cross through the river at one point so be prepared to get your feet wet. decent views. not my favorite but I'd go again especially if I had the nephew's with me.

Pretty area. Nice views of the mountains (Lone Peak). As others have mentioned, there's a fair bit of manure but easy to sidestep if you watch where you're going. The informational plaques were interesting. I liked that there were only a couple other people on the trail. Enjoyable, easy outing.

Very easy trail for kids! There is no shade, but plenty of beetles, lizards, birds, and wildflowers to look at. Dry Creek is also beautiful and flowing like crazy right now. My kids loved the informational plaques along the trail and there were a couple of benches to stop and rest. Just watch out for horse poop, as there is quite a lot near the beginning of the trail. Clean and shaded picnic tables at the trailhead were great too.

Take the lower trail wear waterproof shoes or Texas or chacos and cross the river 20 times lol

Unable to complete because the creek wasn't dry! We'll have to come back in August once it dries up.

Enjoyable hike! There are lots of wood chips, but I was already expecting that after reading the reviews. I did this hike with my 19 month old in the backpack carrier. The Dry Creek lookout was beautiful, and the creek right now definitely isn't dry! June is a great time to complete this hike.

Views of the mountains are gorgeous, and it's easily accessible from a number of trailheads. For hiking, it was not particularly fun because the trails are sandy and not well marked. Expect to tread through the creek a few times!

Such a nice easy going beautiful secluded hike/walk. Loved it. The creek was running too.

should update description to say go through tunnel/bridge. Another jogger and myself both headed into the woods for lots of dead ends. when finally on the right path, it was a very nice run.
