Nice walk from the Visitor Center (trailhead) to the beautiful Huber Homestead and orchards. We had an 8, 7, and 3 year old hobbit with us and they did it just fine without too much grumbling.

Beautiful scenery with a few fun spots to maneuver on the trail

Easy, paved trail. Lots of signs with trail directions. Very pretty.

as of early May, trail closed to vehicles. So sad.

Nice views of the valley.

beautiful, great for strolling and leisurely enjoying nature

We've taken the kids a couple of times. Nice easy little nature walk.

Simple, paved - the dogs loved it.

Very easy hike with nice views of the valley. There are trails all over. I’ll go back with my bike

Very accessible hike with beautiful views. There are also a lot of side hikes you can take, or if you are me, lots of options to get off track. Luckily there was cell service and the AllTrails map came my rescue.

Excellent family hike. I just wish it had mentioned on here the park fee.

Great easy hike especially for little ones. My 4 year old loved it and the views are beautiful. Only downfall is that it runs along a highway so you may experience traffic noise.

A few years ago this was a great trail. The Rock Crawlers have chewed it up so bad ATVs now get beaten up trying to get over the large boulders . Makes a good hiking trail but we (ATV'S) lost a good trail from misuse. It was to be a 40 inch only but managers didn't do a good job of management.

my dogs and i enjoyed this little hike. nice and quite

Beautiful, easy trail. The kids had a great time exploring the Huber Homestead. There are sweet original Pioneer buildings, apple trees there that are 120 years old, and plaques with Hubert's poetry and family history. Beautiful on a Fall evening.

Very easy paved trail, my kids loved all the bridges. Went this past weekend, and while still pretty, the fall colors are mostly all gone. It wasn't very crowded when we went which was nice. It is quite a drive to get there and I'm not sure it was worth such a long drive.

Very pretty, also very short. We were done and back to our car in about 30 minutes.

This is by no means hiking. It's all on a wooden, man built trail that allows you to walk over the springs. It's like what they built in Yellowstone. It's a lovely walk though and very peaceful. We even spotted wild turkeys!

Nice evening walk to take with the kids and dog. Weeknights are perfect

Easy trail , lots of wildflowers and running waters.
I dug my feet in the water and it was freezing.
I did this trail last year.

This trail is misrepresented by All Trails. It's not easy, especially the first ~1/4 mile and it's pretty heavily trafficked, not moderately trafficked. Don't get me wrong; it's a blast though. Lake is fun. Kiddos like to catch salamanders there.

Very easy nature walk. I love the diverse ecosystem here and all the signage identifying the various plants and trees.

Very kid friendly- took a 3 yr old.

Beautiful, short, kid friendly hike.

A very nice nature walk, excellent for non-hikers. Well-travelled as a result.

So very, very beautiful. It's easy. It's fantastic to look at. It's great for kids. Only possible downside is how sunny it can be. Go on a cool day or bring sunscreen.

A nice hike in trees and running water, with plenty of picnic and rest areas, too.

Nice area, easy exploring on paved trails and wooden pathways.

I would not describe this as a hike, it's definitely more of a stroll good for families. I went on a Sunday around 5pm in light rain, and even then it was really busy. On a nice Saturday afternoon, it is probably unpleasantly crowded.

However, the surroundings are beautiful! I can see it being magical on an early morning when the weather is nice and there is no one around.

If you are coming from SLC, I would highly recommend approaching along the Alpine Scenic Route as opposed to through Midway, especially if you want to avoid a very long, rocky dirt road full of ATVs and dirt bikes speeding all around you. I drive a Honda Civic and was afraid I'd get stuck in the dirt or run over a thrill-seeker. Plus, the Alpine route is absolutely stunning, definitely my favorite drive in the area!
