This trail seems to be an old forest road. Pretty easy quick little hike. Lots of wild flowers right now.

Fairly even. Nice and pretty. Had kids with us.

This was a good beginner hike. It’s more an ATV trail than a hiking trail. Very little of the trail is shaded and it’s not marked very well where to go from the parking lot (go behind the gates). Luckily my gps worked fine the whole time. When you get to the Y, go left. There’s a giant cell tower. Go past the cell tower and the view is amazing! Plus you’ll have perfect cell service lol

When you get to the top, make sure you go straight for about another half a mile. The view there was 10 times more gorgeous.

A quick uphill walk or ride to the high point of Jefferson county. Views at the top are OK.

Nice hike through Kelly Canyon Ski area. The trail follows a very dusty road up and around the ski area. Go early to avoid the ATV and dirt bikers that were making their way to the trail by late morning.

Honestly probably would've been a great hike but it's not clear where it starts so we mistakenly just started on a path and 10 miles later, near death, got picked up by a nice couple who took us back to our car.

It was beautiful this time of year with all the wild flowers. Perfect length for children. I expected a hiking trail though and it was an old road the whole way.

For being as close as it is to Rexburg and Idaho Falls, this is a great hike that gives you a pretty view here and there. There is quite a bit of ATV track. And this is a great trail to mountain bike.

Went on this trail two weeks ago! It is great this time of the year with the color of the trees! It is a trail that is worth checking out!

Fun moderate hike! Felt like a work out but didn't feel like I was going to die. It's sandy and I slipped a few times - wear shoes with good traction. Pretty!

Not too bad of a ride. There are some rocky sections near the peak but otherwise it's not too bad. I would definitely recommend this trail and can't wait to go back.
