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.

Gorgeously warm January day! If only the trail was as nice. Turning west away from the mountains and crossing through a tunnel with graffiti got this hike off to a strange start. Then there was a red sleeping bag and vomit on the trail. What the cuss?! But after that, this was a really easy and enjoyable hike. It has bark mulch or pavement all along it, so the footing was really nice. I bet this is the least beautiful time of year for this hike, but the kids and I enjoyed it anyway.

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.

Very beautiful trail. I didn't see any trash and was NOT afraid of any homeless jumping out. I went latter in the afternoon and did not see but maybe three people and one dog. I was hot to start with but then i got rained on :-). I would love to try the other trails. I will be taking my friend and daughter up to explore more. Can't wait to go again.

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.

Great for hiking. The trail is very sandy and some parts have small bark. Good shoes are needed. Wonderful view of the valley on the upper North rim.

There are roaming dogs from the homes near the upper rim that do not clean up after their dogs. Reminder to keep your dog on a leash and take the poop bag to the garbage.

This was such a fun place to go,let the dogs run and enjoy some family time.

Good trail for a visitor to get used to the area. Or for someone looking for something less technical.

Multi-use trail in the heart of Sandy. It would be more beautiful if there wasn't so much trash and graffiti but since it's so close to bridges, a park and a high school I can see why it gets that crowd. I kept thinking I'd see a homeless person at any moment. Still, I'd do it again but bring a trash bag (and a buddy).

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.

For trail running I would consider this more moderate. We came across a lot of deep sand and even the parts that had wood chip, still had sandy bits. I hate sand. It gets everywhere and is difficult to walk in, especially up hill. Even if I were hiking I would not have liked walking around in sand. There are beautiful views though, which is why I gave this 3 stars instead of 2. I'm not sure I would be back for running, but maybe for just some piece and quiet I would come to sit or hang out.

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

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

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

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

Good, easy to follow, well maintained trail with great views of the Wasatch Mountains the entire time. Follows the contour of the drainage about half way up the side of the hill so you have views the entire time.
