It was ok, it felt like every 15 feet I was walking into someone posing with a photographer friend. So many people doing portraits literally everywhere. It was difficult not to get in peoples photographs and I kept having to repeatedly stop and wait for strangers to finish their portraits. Such a weird experience...haha

rode this trail yesterday lots of fun! some tough switchbacks but a lot of fun.

Great for family home evening. Also, more adventurous guests can repel there. Bravo nature! Bravo!

Steadily steep coming up the Slate canyon access road, loose shale in some parts, and breaks partially into pines near and after the fork. Pretty views of the backside mountains.

This is not the sort of hike where you’ll see stunning mountain vistas, but for what it is - more of an urban hike- it’s lovely. It’s full exposure, so spring or fall is the perfect time for it. The view from sunset point is pretty incredible as you can see most of the Salt Lake valley, the Great Salt Lake, and into Davis and Weber Counties. This could not be more fitting for small children as the incline is gradual and only 2 miles to do the shortcut route. The trail is well marked and well-maintained. Would do this again for a short hike with great city views.

Not super hard. It’s a good trail for hiking alone, lots of wildlife, and peace and quiet. I ended up walking the road until it intersects with the trail, and then took the trail back, so I made it a loop. I loved this trail! I’m sure it will be less dead and more green in a few months.

My wife and I love this trail. Not a lot of traffic, and some gorgeous wildflowers. We hike up this trail even when we’re not going to the top . . . just for the solitude!

Great view of salmon run

This is such an amazing hike. You start off with a steep hike upwards(not too strenuous) and then you get up to the shoreline trail, which wraps around the mountain, and gives an amazing view of SLC.

Perfect family balance

I love this hike, such a beautiful view and totally worth the moderate hike!

Were spikes needed at all?

@jared, roughly 2.5 miles each way, 5 total.

Is it 5 mile one way or out and back?

Loved this trail! I went on a Monday and it was not heavily trafficked at all. There were people there but I had a couple pools to myself at most times. The springs were incredible and such a treat. The hike itself was not difficult. I would recommend to not wear jewelry in the hot springs, I didn't realize this but the sulfur in the springs oxidized my silver ring. I don't hate it, just unexpected. A little added souvenir if you will. Highly recommend! There was some trash which was unfortunate but it was incredible overall.

fun easy hike the kids loved it. lots of boulders to climb and explore.

Beautiful day! Great moderately paced hike. Slightly rocky with elevation for a little way at the start. The views all around keep your eyes busy. Family and dog friendly. :)

Such a fun trail! We got there around 10 this morning, thinking it was early enough to beat the crowds, we were wrong. Parking was crazy. But the hike to the springs was beautiful and easy. We took our two boys 7 & 2. When we got to the springs a nice lady told us where a good spot to sit with kids was! I was surprised by how hot some spots were. But it was amazing! Seriously, such a fun experience. We took a garbage bag and picked up some garbage we saw coming out, but honestly it wasn’t to bad! Also someone before us had said a kid had cut them selves on some glass but we never saw any. Getting out of the parking lot when we got back was kind of a joke. People will just park anywhere even if it boxes someone in. My advice would be to park on the road.

Hiked up there will my toddler in a backpack and, a 6 & 9 year old. Very pretty. My kids did great and LOVED the hot springs.

Such a stunning overlook towards Salt Lake and beautiful flowers along the path.

Went up this morning, broken glass on the trail and in the lowest spring. Removed as much as I could. Would highly advise wearing flip flops or something.

Beautiful and not super difficult trail with a treat at the end of it. We hiked it about a month ago and were amazed by the variety of colors.

Great hike, the main waterfall is about 100 yds past the bridge and at that point feel that it goes from easy to moderate. The falls are beautiful! Rest of the hike up to the end of the red trail marker it moderate. Seeing all the smaller falls makes it worth it. Plan or doing the big loop here and hitting the peak, won’t be till next month but we may even camp.

Did again yesterday, TRASH EVERYWHERE by the lower falls, towels, clothes, glass alcohol bottles, beer cans, etc. So annoying that people can’t pick up after themselves.

Always a pleasure.

I'm out of shape, but I was able to hike this with only a few short breaks. Keep your eyes and ears active! I'm fairly certain I heard a rattlesnake about one mile in. Also, the trails get muddy after it rains, so wear quality boots. Beautiful views along the entire hike, but especially once you reach the overlook portion. It took me less than one hour to reach the flatter portion of the hike, including breaks.

Pretty day with intermittent snow fall. The trail is a little close to the road in the beginning. It still has icy and snow covered portions starting about 1/2 up. Keep an eye and ear out for downhill cyclists. With the deep melting snow, there isn’t much room to move if you get caught in an icy portion when they need to pass.

I love green canyon. Don’t know why people complain about other people using it. My only complaint is off leash dogs. Please take your dogs out on this bike but please keep them on leash!

Great hike on a good trail. The color of the water near the hot springs is amazing. Love hiking mornings ad avoiding and avoiding the usual crowd. It was overcast and the eating rain which also keep the crowds down on a Saturday.

Looks great for later in the season but still too muddy for us after a day of skiing... We were passed by some trail runners though!
