Great trail to take the pup out on! Keep an eye out for the moose about 1/2 way up. He loves to hang out in the thicket by the pines.

really hard, not like a stair master, much higher steps and increasing elevation. met several people from sea level states, requires lots of breaks to 'catch your breath.'

Despite what some reviews say, this is an easy hike, particularly for Utah. You can also access this from the Granite Trailhead. It is generally quite busy and you will see plenty of eager and energetic children on this hike, as with most easy and moderate rated hikes in Utah.

Super easy, but good view. Just a good Sunday stroll.

This is definitely not hard. It’s moderate. It seems long though and not as pretty as red pine in my opinion. The lake is amazing though and better than red for sure. Without the ending I’d have given a 3 star actually.

I really loved this hike! You have a b
view almost every step of the way. I clocked in at 4.6 miles total though, but worth it. We saw 5 deer and a bull moose right off the trail. My 4 and 6 year olds were able to do this with slight help. The dirt road leading up to this is pretty bumpy though, that was the worst part.

It’s ok...pretty views of the mountains at least. It is a short hike but definitely more moderate than easy, just because it’s more of a very steep climb. Pretty much the whole way to the reservoir you are climbing large rocks and high steps. Kind of a pain when you have short legs.

Best hike ever!

Gorgeous trail. We were in a race against the fading daylight so I would rate this hard vs moderate merely for the speed we were going. If you have Verizon, you will NOT get service for your map so make sure you download the map before you get to the parking lot. We hiked the last 0.5 mile in the dark. The views were absolutely stunning and as we only had time for a quick (under 2 hours) hike, this one was perfect. Huge scenery payout for the time invested.

Keep in mind, you have to pay a $6.00 fee to park at the entrance of the trail. Also, the 3-mile dirt road leading up to the trail is a bit bumpy. I wouldn’t recommend driving up in something that doesn’t have AWD. I brought my 5 year old on this hike and he did really well (we took a lot of breaks haha). The scenery is beautiful and I found myself wanting to take pictures at every turn. I’ve never been in the spring/summer, but I can’t imagine a better time to hike here than in the fall when all the leaves are changing color.

Trail was in great shape, very little mud, and leaves are changing and look great. Long hike, be prepared, and enjoy the views.

We hiked this trail on this beautiful day today. I used map my walk app both directions and it showed it was 2.5 mi from parking lot to the lake. The first part was a pretty gentle incline about 1.5 mi through gorgeous aspens. The last .75 mile is much steeper probably closer to hard rating vs moderate. It was very enjoyable having our lunch at the lake and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We have hiked about 4 other trails in the vicinity and this definitely is the most scenic. The fall colors were lovely. The dirt road not so great and could use some help. We passed about a dozen other hikers mostly with their dogs. The trail goes up higher to another lake but we didn’t go higher today.

love it

I wouldn’t call this an easy!!! It’s steep the first half mile. Initially brought my 70 year old mom and older sister who were visiting from out of state because it was rated as easy. They wanted a pretty hike. We had to leave, it was way too strenuous for them. So I came back another day. It is busy and lots of families with young kids. It’s a narrow trail in many places and kinda challenging (annoying) when toddlers are blocking the path picking up rocks and parents are just allowing them to block people! The good thing is no dogs are allowed so you don’t have to smell dog urine or worry about stepping in dog feces! Took me about 20-25 minutes to reach the reservoir, with a few stops to catch my breath. The sound of the water in the creek was awesome!

Love this lake. Such an amazing hike and scenery. Definitely a bit harder for my kids but still doable for them - ages 7 to 12. Less people here than Silver Lake too so that’s worth the extra hour hike too.

Absolutely beautiful. Great hike. Incredible lake and mountain views. Not too hard. 6 year old did it with his own pack. Try to take family backpacking and camping up here at least once a year.

The views are as good as it gets! We hiked on Labor Day, so lots of hikers and dogs. Not terribly strenuous and only took a few hours. The water at the lake above was cold and refreshing to swim in. I’ll definitely hike again with my dog.

is nice place

Okay, I’m from Missouri and this hike was quite the challenge for someone not from Utah. The views were breathtaking, the lake was serene and totally worth it & refreshing. Going up is a challenge as it’s rocky as you get closer to the top, and it requires a lot of leg strength. We took numerous breaks but eventually made it. It took us an hour and thirteen minutes to get down but about 2 hours to get up. The road up to the trailhead was a bit scary as you’re right along the edge but just take it slow.
Overall:
Views: 5 stars
Trail difficulty: strenuous
Road up to trail: rocky&bumpy&steep

Better than I even expected! The leaves are starting to change.

so this Trail is definitely rated difficult I hike quite a bit 3 or 4 days a week and for some reason this Trail just kicked my butt I think part of that is that it's very boldery all the way up through the second upper waterfall and the amount of climbing up and over rocks and boulders that's involved it's like doing a stair climber for 3 miles. I underestimated the amount of energy and pace that takes. I was about 1-1.5 miles an hour. to be fair I didn't make it all the way to the reservoir but now knowing what to expect I'm going to give this one another try. def make sure to have enough water least 4lit and snacks..

I go on a hike every Sunday and this has to have been one of the most memorable. The hike is very strenuous and make sure you have some water. You will get tired but keep going, the end lake is way worth it! Pretty steep towards the end.

Such a good hike to a beautiful, well worth view. Our pup enjoyed the walk and being able to freshen up in the streams along the way.

Beautiful hike! Decently steep going up but feels great when you reach the lake! Water and surrounding scenery is breath-taking. Favorite hike in the Wasatch!

This hike was amazing! The only part I didn’t live was the three mile drive on a horrible dirt road to get to the trail head. Hike itself was great. Steeper in spots than we expected and pretty rocky, but the lake at the top is so serene and a perfect reward after the hike. We saw a moose in a grove of aspens not twenty-five feet from us. So cool!

beautiful Trail lots of Pines the lake at the end is just absolutely pristine

Beautiful !!!!
