It’s a relatively easy hike and very well-marked. It’s a beautiful view of the valley if the sky is clear. If it’s hazy or smoky, you can’t see much!

Nice short trail with an amazing view of SLC at the peek.

It is short but pretty steep almost the entire time. But worth it if you take it slow it’s a great hike for anyone. At the top you see the entire valley so very worth it

Worth it for the view, short, and nice

Worth doing once for the view of the city. Easy to follow. Well maintained.

Great for a short hike, not so much for mountain biking. This app says it's mountain bike friendly but there's actually a sign that says bikes prohibited. That may just be in the first overlook area at the bottom, but bikes aren't a great idea for this trail anyway because it's so frequently trafficked and steep. I had to walk my bike up most of the way (lifted it over the bigger rocks at the top) and of course heavily breaked nonstop on the way down. I adore the view at the top tho! Especially in the morning! The sun rises over the east mountain range the sunlight filtered beautifully through the autumn colored trees on the mountain.

My dogs love being off leash here!

A nice but exposed trail, so wear UV protection. Although, it is short you might bring water with you, especially in the summer months. Great views with Latter-day Saint historical significance. There's a memorial on top.

hiked it with a bunch of teenagers. A great trail to take beginners and those who normally struggle with hiking

Quick short trail, heavily trafficked.

I brought my family from out of town on this hike and it was sooooo beautiful. There’s a dirt trail next to a paved one so you have options. 10/10 recommend the dirt trail. Just some challenging parts for the little ones but definitely do-able.

Very easy hike, good for all ages.

Such a nice easy hike! Great if you have dogs :)

This was a really great hike with great views, but there are no bathrooms!! There's also a park just a little ways south of the trailhead, and there are no bathrooms there either.

Great views at the top of the hike. Loose rocks make the walk down a little dangerous.

A casual walk more than a hike. The view is scenic and worth the walk to the top.

Classic SLC Trail ! In many ways, this trail opened many other adventures for me ! Great trail for beginners, kids and offers the opportunity get to see other locals

don’t forget your book of M.

Nice view but really tracked out and muddy

This one is a fun and everyday type hike. Beautiful views of downtown and the two mountain ranges. Also, at the peak there is great history of the landscape of the valley and how the city was developed overtime.

It took me 20 minutes at a moderate pace to go up and a little more than 20 minutes down. It's a bit rocky in some places, so if you're not confident on your footing, it feels slippery. It seems to always be crowded at the top.

Nice easy little hike with some good views of the Salt Lake Valley

It was pretty easy and had a beautiful view of Dt and the capital building

Nice hike, would start the black mountain trail up higher, park on city creek and bonneville trail Blvd.

Good trail to start off in SLC, overlooking the city, beautiful at the top!

Great hike. Beautiful view of downtown! I plan to have friends and family try this trail out when they visit.

Amazing views of salt lake city

It’s a beautiful overlook. Steeper than you think but short. There’s street parking at the trailhead.
