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.

Fantastic hike. We did this at the end of October and hiked most of it in the dark. Amazing views, especially when the sun was starting to come up with all of the Fall colors. Would love to do this again some day!

Fairly significant grade over most of the clearly marked and well traversed trail. Nearly the entire trail is under a moderately thick canopy. Nice waterfall a little more than halfway up. Semi open meadow at the summit with great views of surrounding peaks.

Had a great time. Attempted Twin peak but had to turnaround due to time. Broad Fork is a great trail for active hikers. Twin peak is all up and has incredible views of the mountain area.

Hike was mostly uphill for the 2+ miles, though there were a few flatter spots to break the near-constant uphill climb. At the end are two small ponds. Quiet trail with a nice water cascade along part of the trail. This trail does continue on to Twin Peaks which is a much longer and more elevated climb

The hike was beautiful and only ran into a handful of hikers along the way. Agree with the other descriptions: difficult, all uphill (which is a knee killer on the way down), no way this is less than 9-10 miles round trip. For those others that have done the full summit to Twin Peaks - any advice? I scrambled to the saddle and felt very uneasy the whole time from the base of the rock field. Steep, lots of loose rocks, moments of rock scrambling/climbing that I was sure would lead to my death :). I know there's other routes - I'm not a super technical hiker so wondering if i went up the wrong way. Can't find a great site for this info.
