Pretty long, pretty steep. You get gorgeous views at the top and after about a mile from the parking lot, I only saw 2 other people. As of right now (6/28/20) snow is not an issue at all. There are 2 sections where snow covers the path, but I very easily climbed around it. Super windy at the top, wanted to blow me over the edge lol. As long as you use gps, you should have no problem finding the paths to take when there are several splits with bike trails. Overall, highly recommend. Took me just over 4 hours car to car.

Loose rock almost the whole trail past big springs. Extremely steep. Steep snow fields at top covering trail so you have to scramble across and try and find trail again. We slid 40 feet down one at one point trying to get across. No water on great western side so be prepared for that. Other than that the scenery is beautiful and the views are incredible.

People, now is the time to hike this trail! Late May, early June is as green as our Wasatch mountains get. The meadows are beautiful, there’s lots of wild flowers, the choke cherries are blooming. Life is great at Big Springs Hollow right now.

Beautiful but I would rate this moderate. This map just ends before you get anywhere. It was 2 or more miles to the summit. I got the alert that I was finished. Maybe you could get this updated. I did love the hike.

Nice trail! It was Memorial Day so there were lots of families out hiking. The higher up you go, once you pass the two bridges is where you start to see more wildflowers. Neat hike!

The only complaint I have about this trail is that you don’t really know when it ends! It’s also definitely harder than “easy”, i’d say moderate is a better fitting description. It sprinkled some nice cool rain on us on our way up, and the foliage was so so beautiful and green! Loved this hike.

Kinda steep, just enough that it makes it hard to talk while you’re going up, but the creek and all the trees and vegetation makes it SO BEAUTIFUL!! I really enjoyed it

Great horse trail. Fantastic ride this morning. The weather was absolutely perfect! This is a great trail with lots of shade. There are some very rocky sections. There are two bridges, lots and lots of deadfall to go over and lots of hills. Was a great work out.

Beautiful and nice to just get out. Pretty easy, I'd rate a moderate for the last 0.3 miles up, it's pretty steep. Hard to know when the trail actually ended.

What a fun small hike with the perfect amount of shade. Only concern was we saw several rattle snakes on the trail.

The end of the trail isn’t marked but I assumed once you reach the top and there are two wooden bridges you cross on the other side that was it. Other than that beautiful shady trail!

Beautiful hike with lots of camping grounds and a stream running through it. Beautiful views. Some snow at the end of the hike, but nothing too crazy.

Peaceful trail that follows and crosses streams and creeks. Still some snow on the upper portion of the trail but we walked over the snowy portions. Very enjoyable hike and we plan to return in the summer.

We didn’t make it all the way, but it’s still pretty early in the season. Once we hit snow we decided to head back. It’s still a nice easy hike with pretty scenery. The sound of the little stream that’s next to the trail is so relaxing. Stopped a few times just to enjoy that. I recommend a light hoodie or jacket for this time of year.

Nice little easy hike. Pretty small but steady incline. The trail kind of just ends which is weird, but allows you to continue onto another trail if you want. There’s some snow much not much, no need for crampons or snowshoes. Pretty muddy at parts but still nice.
