Me and my 71 year old father decided to start up the lone peak trail at 8:30 and just hike for a couple of hours then turn back. Well, we got greedy and decided to go for the Outlaw Cabin we had heard about. Amazing hike. Beautiful views, nice and cool for much of the day. It took us five hours to get there, with lots of breaks along the way. The cabin is real and is pretty cool. Yes, there is a Book of Mormon inside. We drank straight from the clear steam that runs close by. The hike down took longer than expected. Even though the Cherry Canyon trail is supposed to be less steep and easier than Jacob’s Ladder, it’s still steep enough in many parts that we had to slow down. We only had three cliff bars so got pretty tired towards the end of the day. And the heat at the lower elevations wore on us quite a bit. But we made it. Next time we’ll prepare a bit better. Well, next time we’ll try to summit Lone Peak. Highly recommend this hike!

Overall a tough hike. Is there really a cabin up there? I went 4.5 miles in, trail became snow covered and a little sketchy. Turned back, disappointment to not see the cabin or anything else up there. Other hikers in front of me seemed to vanish in the ether, no footsteps in the snow, no other obvious trail routes, puzzling

Super awesome trail, definitely a dig but the views are gorgeous!

I’m not sure what trail we were on, my boyfriend and I just parked by Hidden Valley Park. On the stroll with our dogs we passed a trail that said dogs allowed so we followed it. According to a stranger on my Instagram post we were on Bonneville Shoreline Trail and said dogs aren’t allowed. However, I can assure you, while there were a few signs saying no dogs allowed on specific trails, we did find one that said they were allowed on another one. It was a beautiful hike, I’d say pretty easy. Lots of kids, runners, bikers and plenty of dogs. I think it just depends on the trail you go on, so be sure to keep walking further until you find one that allows dogs :)

Plan my day around going on this hike drive 40 miles it saids digs on leash when you get there it saids NODOGS. Very disappointing

This is a nice hike in the fall or spring when other trails might be covered in snow or ice. The views are pretty decent but it would be aggravating to do this hike on a polluted day in the valley. There are lots of side trails along the way and the bear canyon spur is quite pretty. This would be a miserable hike in the heat —there is very little shade. A great choice for trail running and mountain biking. Good for all ages. It’s pretty easy and you can go for as short or as long as you like.

Man , tough steep hike the weather was nice , but the wind was really bad the higher up we went

Perfect day to hike Cherry Canyon. It was difficult but worth it. The first few miles are hard but it does ease up.

Love this spot. Took my five kids and we worked up the trail pretty easily. Coming down the trail is pretty slippery and the kids slipped a few times but they loved the views. You weave in and out of covered brush areas and open ridge line. Really run. I take family here from out of town. Fun fun fun.

I do some trail running along this trail often in the mornings. Pretty open, so no good cover really, but plenty of space to run with friends.

A pretty hike in the fall.

It is an okay trail. No shade so go In the evening or early morning.

This is the trail I took to Lone Peak, so the cabin served as a solid stopping point to adjust my pack and eat a solid lunch. The only part of this trail I actually enjoyed was when it finally came into Bear Canyon, a little over 4 miles in. The first four miles were mind-numbing, exposed, and full of terribly steep, washed-out switchbacks which seems to defeated purpose of switchbacks (to provide a bit of stable relief from steepness and to protect the conditions of the trails). The trail crosses 3 water sources, which is great for a hot day, and Bear Canyon is stunning. The cabin itself is spooky at most but has sadly been pretty trashed. If you're going to do this trail, you may as well pick up the trail on the South side of the cabin and go on to Lone Peak to feel like you've really accomplished something.

Super hot in the afternoon without shade, but nice when it's cooler.

Pretty nice hike. Only a couple of people of the trail. Not much shade unfortunately and today was a hot one. Def a hike I will do again in the fall.

The trail is a very good trail. Wide, very little rock and tree stumps and only a couple of downed trees. When you to high enough to get into the trees it's very beautiful. Great view of Salt Lake, Utah County and of coarse the amazing granite spires of Lone Peak and the surrounding area. The cabin currently has a new American Flag to celebrate Independence Day. Returned down the Trail of the Eagle for a great loop hike

Camped on a ridge about 3.4 miles into the hike. see previous review. Hiked up to Outlaw cabin then almost to the the junction of the Jacob's Ladder trail. Great trail, views and alpine setting all withing 25 minutes from home to trail. Returned back to the trail-head via the Trail of the Eagle trail turning this into a nice loop hike

This is a very good trail. It's wide and mostly free from rocks and tree stumps. Spent the night on a ridge with night views of both Salt Lake County and Utah County within a few steps

Sunday hike to Lone Peak started at 0615 am and went well up to Lone Peak basin. Started back down should have filled up a water bottle at the log cabin. brought 3 liters of water ran out about last 2 hrs. also on the way down saw in the distance Eagle Trail thought that would be a more direct route down big mistake. after bushwaking my way over to the trail which was a 1/4 mile away I worked my way down. the trail is over grown with roots, old stump, branchs that stick out all designed to trip you. at times could not see the trail very over grown. fell 12 times or there about lost count. had to go by bear cyn and gets some water.should have stayed with Cherry cyn trail!!!

This is a great trail if you start at the trail head by draper park , the section between 12600 s and the draper park is tricky to get to . My advice is to start at the trail head

Great trail and lightly trafficked so you rarely see another hiker. The views are great the whole way and while it is very strenuous it's not over the top. Start early.

Not great for mountain biking. Lots of hikers, trail runners and dogs. And, steep and rocky in a lot of places.

Beautiful views & dog friendly. Trails are nice & dry for the season!

It's a climb from the trailhead to the Shoreline trail. Once on actual trail is easy and a good trail. Because we started after sun set we only saw 3 people and they were all returning to the trailhead. We only hiked until the trail crossed the Alpine Draper road and there is a parking lot. It was dark by then and we look back where we have been and was suprised to seen many headlamp. Turn out it was a group of 20-30 mountain bikers the whole trail was lit up with bike lamps and headlamps. It was a beautiful sight. We decided to return by way of the Alpine-Draper Road and the Aqueduct trail. Glad we did because the same group returned on the shoreline trail. We would have had to step of the trail to let them pass. It was a nice loop

This is a well maintained running/walking path. It's paved and runs along the TRAX line with plenty of places for water and restroom breaks. As it continues south past the last stop it becomes less crowded.
