nice trails

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.

Did this Trail in the early spring. It was nice to see the changes in shrubbery, trees, plants, etc. Very pretty view of SLC!

There are tons of trails in the area. It is very easy to get lost and walk down a bikes only trail because there are 2 signs saying conflicting things. We started to the right and up the clarks trail, when we got to the top we should have just walked down the road from the parking lot and it runs into canyon hollow that takes you back to the coyote hollow trailhead. Just FYI

solid trail. decently long but not that difficult. only reason I could see it being moderate is the length. lots of shade mixed in. Could use a little bit clearer signage, but not that difficult to navigate.

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
