This is a great trail. Nicely done with signs and explanations on local wildlife and environmental life. It’s a steep steep trail though. Everyone knows that. But it gets you to the “Y” quickly where the view is amazing. That’s another thing I like a lot about this trail, almost the whole time you get an amazing view of the valley without huge trees blocking your sight. It’s relatively short but it is still a leg burner. Fun “during the week” hike. Takes about 45-120 minutes depending on your health

Nice monochromatic views on the lower part. Muddy and windy at the top with spectacular 360 views near the peak.

Poor signage, so make sure you're aware of your route. Stay left going up.

Really warm today. Takes about 4 hours overall. Pretty steep in parts. Bring poles and lots of energy!

this is a great trail, with beautiful views of Orem and Provo.

We completed this hike back in July. It took us roughly 4 hours carrying our 1 year old son. The view was amazing!

I didn't love the first bit of the hike, but the trail gets gorgeous once you're past the Y! Fewer people, and way more wildlife.

Squaw Peak or Rock Canyon is one of my favorite places in Provo. It's so close and whether you have an hour or more it never disappoints. I've done this in the summer and autumn and love both seasons. It is fairly steep and some loose rock. Going up isn't really an issue but coming down I did slip a couple of times. The trail is well marked and the view from the top is amazing. Bring water and some snacks/lunch cause you're going to need them especially during the summer months. It is about 7 miles.
