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.

Nice view of Catherine Lake from the pass. Much shorter hike from Brighton

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.

Great hike. Challenging.

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.

Trailhead has one, maybe two parking spots just down the hill, but not much as it is residential. That being said, the north side has the most spectacular fall foliage right now! Get up there soon! Even if you just want to turn back at the saddle and go through it again!

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 trail for early autumn with leaves beginning to turn. The marked access point is has no parking so Wow Pine trail parking is your option.

Used as access to Phosphate Loop. A little confusing on the return with a couple of side trails.

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.

Awesome trail. Lots of other trails around, this one is closer to a downhill style. Super fun.

Trail is nice but they have restricted parking from Interlaken area with tow away signs. Need to access by hiking up one mile up Wow Trail to reach the Loop or by coming in Dutch Hollow and hiking 1.5 miles up Donkey Ridge trail. Now a Lollipop trail from either trailhead.

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.

We started the loop (going clockwise) about 6:30 pm for short a evening walk. Trail is fairly easy and we could trail run about 70% if it. The switchbacks on the northwest side are easier walked. I would rate this an Easy/moderate trail. Beautiful wildflowers mixed with scrub oak, and amazing view of Midway throughout.

Although rated as "moderate," I thought this was a pretty easy hike with great views of the entire Heber Valley, as you circle Phosphate Hill. The south side of the hill is exposed and the north side is pretty shady.

Very kid friendly- took a 3 yr old.

Beautiful, short, kid friendly hike.

Great workout.

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

This hike ended up being 6.7 miles from the trailhead and back, which was quite a bit longer than we anticipated. We did the loop counter-clockwise, and the last half was much shadier and nicer than the first. Gorgeous wildflowers, including numerous sego lilies, and an eagle soaring overhead were the highlights. Worth the trek, would be good for trail-running, but no water so take your own.

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.
