This is a beautiful, steep trail following a raging creek in the spring. It has relatively little traffic, and lots of shade relative to many Salt Lake hikes. The trail ends near a pond in a high valley.

Great birding up in this area! The trailhead is in the corner of a busy parking lot but I see very few people on the trail every time I go. There's a fair amount of wildlife other than birds that's exciting to run into as well (moose and some pika towards the top in the rocky areas). I would highly recommend this trail! ❤️

It's only straight uphill until you get to the top. Plus there is at least 50 yards of a reasonable, level section to give you a one minute reprieve. Beautiful, beautiful terrain and views, though. Great hike if you are up for some exercise.

Excellent hike. Some snow at the top today, but only in shady places. Beautiful view of Twin Peaks covered in snow. Trail somewhat covered by bushes/branches near the pond, but findable. Did not pass any other hikers.

It doesn't get much better than this: a cardio workout, stunning views, various forests, a water fall, and fields of flowers. All within a short drive of downtown.
