Amazing view & A must try

Actually I start from the harder part that took the right side route(some people I met later were all start from the left route(riverside) Good thing about to start like this I should say is, you’ll meet the most beautiful view when you still in great shape also the wind blowing won’t be too crazy, that benefits photo taking.
Don’t feel that hard but some angles are really not so easy and poles are recommended to beginners.
Strongly recommended hike without pets due to the harder part what I start with is pretty narrow for even one person to pass.

The beginning is a little dull but the higher you go the better it gets. The beaver dams are great but the best part is after. If you do anything off trail it’s closer to 6 miles.

The bridge to the sawmill is broken and we didn’t try to cross it. (This is at the very end of the trail).

Our rating would be moderate.

very nice hike. a bit rough for little kids, but very nice, and fairly wooded. so close to town, and saw no rattlesnakes.

A good work out.

If you've only hiked the wind caves and not crimson yet, you need to remedy that. It is a great trail and takes from exposed rocks to huge trees and back again. It is a cool feeling running right next to the shelf.

The view is worth every ounce of effort. Not too technical, for the most part, but there are definitely some more rocky and steep parts. I love the different color wildflowers in July!

When we first started out I wasn't so sure we picked the best trail. Yet I was proved wrong! Walking along the cliffs was so beautiful especially with the leaves beginning to change colors. Definitely recommend hiking within the next couple of months.

A little difficult to find at first. Trailhead is just past Tony Grove Rd if you're going north on 89 from Logan. Parking area is on right side of road, trail starts on other side of road. You'll also come to a gate but just go over it. Trail is narrow and pretty steep in some places. Not an overly pretty hike. Trail is loose sand and rocks. Moderate as described. Lots of cows and therefore lots of cow patties. Kind of gross and smelly but what can you do....Not a lot of shade either so bring lots of water and get an early start.

Love this trail.

Started from the trailhead near Cherry Peak Resort.

This hike had enough variance over the 5.4 miles that you don't feel like you are hiking the same thing for more than a mile. Expect to see Shady Wooded areas, Grassy Ridges, Rocky Passes, Mountain meadows, and butterflies, birds and squirrels along the way.

It got cold towards the top and in the ravine near the river. I would not be surprised to have seen snow a little later in the year here. There is a lot of sun exposure on this trail as well. So equally plan your layers for hot and cold protection. We hiked early morning and it was very nice weather but the sunrise glare was terrible - pack sunglasses. on the way down I was glad to have sunblock and a cooling bandanna.

This trail has a few good rest spots but the last mile they are scarce and the trail gets thin.

Also expect to run into horses and horse poop. On the flip side this trail is dog friendly.

There are a lot of patches of loose rock on the trail and really steep switchbacks and saddles. I would recommend very good hiking shoes with good grip and if you have weak ankles or knees some trekking poles/stick. also clip your toenails, the down grade is steep.

I'd plan first aid around trail slips, twisted/rolled ankles, and falling on loose rock.

Parts of the river were dry in late August Early Sept. If you bring a water filter and are relying on it - check on the water runoff or bring backup. Also bring purification because of animals and farm area.

Great my mountain biking! It makes a difference when a biker makes a trail... this one is. The trail flows really well with some added features to hit. I don't feel like I'm just bombing down because it weaves enough that it's a silky smooth ride. It is a bit hard to find though so be aware of that. (Ps there is a cul-de-sac south of the dirt road (not connected to the main access road) that has single track leading up to the road that's fun. Much better than driving halfway up and unlocking gates.)
