What a work out,loved every minute of it beautiful scenery.

Its a good family trail with fair amounts of shade. I don't personally love sharing the trail with mountain bikers (with 3 kids 5 and under, its a total hassle to pull them all aside every 5 minutes) but we chose a much less crowded time than usual, which was very pleasant!
We typically hike Big or Little cottonwood about 75% of the time, so the dog waste everywhere was appalling to see... CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOGS PEOPLE!
The teepees were all dismantled which was a total bummer! My kids were really looking forward to them!
There were tons of wildflowers and tree blossoms and it made for gorgeous scenery!

Super busy on weekends would never mountain bike on a Saturday morning or evening nor Sunday, but any other day is a blast!

The real difficulty for me was the slippery mud. I wore shorts and didn’t find the trail as scratchy as others have noted, but there is a lot of foliage and growth along the way. Saw plenty of deer and turkeys. There are fantastic views of North Salt Lake and Mueller Park. There is also far less traffic. I hit the parking lot at almost 22:00, and it was still full of cars. Didn’t see another person on Kenny Creek.

Beautiful hike!!

The road further up the canyon is closed off for construction. Not worth the drive if you’re looking to off-road or go up to the peak.

I ran this trail in the rain, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The trail is moderately steep in areas, but it’s not too steep. It’s wonderful. If you’re considering this trail, definitely do it! :)

The heavy crowds don't distract from this beautiful trail. It start steep, shaded by big pines, followed by scrub oak. There are several bridged stream crossings and much of the trail is shaded. I nearly always see wildlife from deer to snakes and even the occasional moose. The trail is multi-use so expect to share the trail! Hikers, bikers, horses and motorcycles are all allowed. To get away from the crowds continue past the big rock to Rudy's Flat. There is room for camping and few venture this far. I usually mountain bike the trail but often hike with the kids, camp at Ruby's and snowshoe in the winter.

Awesome trail close to town. Remember folks, this is a multi-use trail which means it allows dirtbikes all the way to Mueller and back. Hikers please be courteous and let riders pass. Riders keep the speeds down! There are a couple creek crossings which utilize raised bridges...these are treacherous when wet...please let the trails dry before use!

Hiked the Kenny Creek Trail past the cabin to Willy Hollow. Lost the trail after it crossed the small stream at a camp with an old table. We just followed the Willy Hollow stream down to Mill Creek. Both Kenny Creek and Mill Creek are very overgrown.

I love hiking the Cave Peak trail up by Bountiful Utah, and making my way up to Elephant Rock where you'll find an amazing view of the scenery, trails, hill sides, and mountains you just hiked! Its a shorter hike only about 10 miles all together but along the way you'll meet amazing people who share the same flare of traveling that so many of us do. The scenery along the was is amazing, filled with lots of places to take pictures, and videos. One of my favorite places along the way is this clearing at a bend in the trail where the trees cover the sky almost completely but leave enough space for this beautiful lighting from the sun to come through, the ground is littered with small bushes, leaves, and these moss covered logs stacked up against each other to make a shape resembling tepees, when you come to this clearing its like you've entered another realm and really goes to show you can find beauty everywhere. This trail isn't widely known about, accept to the locals who live in Bountiful Utah, but it is my favorite trail because not only is it a good hike but short enough to bring along the family, but because every time I go i bring back a new experience, one of a magical nature!

Decent trail: A bit steep for some, and overgrown to the point of requiring pants after the first mile. The cabin at which most people end this hike is 2.4 miles in, making it 4.8 RT. The currently shown map listed at 9.5 RT is pretty inaccurate and I couldn't find a trail going west from the cabin. I followed the marked (plastic ties on trees) trail south-west for about 1 mile until I lost it along one of the streams feeding Mill Creek, south of Kenny.

Amazing trail.

Had a blast !! Great trail! Sunny day!

We enjoyed this hike although once we got to the top loop it was just about impossible to get down to the "Cave" area. Taook about 2.5 hours.

Very pleasant hike! The slope is pretty gentle all the way to Elehpant Rock. There was quite a bit of fresh now on the ground on 3-18 but the trail was easy without the need for microspikes.

I snowshoe and hike this trail all year long...it’s usually pretty crowded and sometimes tough for mountain bikes to squeeze past the hikers. That said, I love the location, the ease of parking and getting right on the trail and the scenery. Elephant Rock isn’t the best reward after a long hike but it’s a great workout.

Great

Decent place to walk a dog or take in views of Bountiful McMansions. The destination is a medium sized boulder with a view of the oil refinery. Also busy. Mountain bikers year round.

Other than the weekend crowds this is a wonderful trail!

Great views, but busy. Don’t go Tuesday mornings around 6am or you’ll run into about 45 high school kids from several local mountain biking clubs on the trail.

Beautiful above elephant rock. Pretty decent amount of elevation gain to get there.

Just came down this trail from the Mueller park side. Nice trail.

Really nice hike. Lots of people and lots of mountain bikers though.

Still a pretty trail. Heavy use though. Don't expect to be alone. 6 cars when we got there 30+ when we left.

Little crowded lots of bikers but boy what a beautiful trail!

Beautiful, easy hike up to the Elephant Rock. Will see many bikers, dogs. gradual incline entire way.

It was a good hike. they are doing work on the trail building a new bridge looking good. A lot of mountain bikes on the trail I found them to be very courteous as were the other hikers I met on the trail.

Good moderate hike with a little climb at the end. Great for a jog
