Beautiful hike that is not difficult but has many wildflowers, overlooks, and a beautiful view at the top. There are several ways to get to the top so having this AllTrails app handy helped with navigation. We went last Saturday mid-morning and passed probably seven other small groups. We also saw a dead rattlesnake on the path and so were glad we wore long pants. Excellent weather this time of year and some shade cover. We saw a few little kids (ages 5 or 6) on the summit with us and they seemed to do great!

This hike was very easy! Like said in other reviews the last stretch is completely an incline uphill! But the views on this hike make up for it!!! The drive up is longer than the hike and a dirt road leads the way for about 3 miles (for car care).

Really nice, short summit hike. I enjoyed the views the entire little way. Yes it got a tad steep at the end on loose rock, but we did it. And we had a 4 year old and a 2 year old. The kids loved it. We went midday in June and it was breezy and we didn't have bug problems

Road was fine, I could have driven a smart car up it!

Such a fun little hike. We took my daughters and nephews. There were parts that were pretty steep, but because it was so short it was really doable with the kids. They loved it when we got to the top and we told them they bagged their first peak. Haha. Great views and really just a good, fun time.

hiked this from the squaw peak overlook TH yesterday. Fairly easy hike, climbed about 1300 vertical feet going out 2 miles. Great views of the Provo/Orem and Utah Lake area below the mountain. Hiked through snow starting about a mile from the TH at 7200'. Walked back on the road which was also covered in snow and closed to all but ATV/snowmobile vehicles. Great place for sledding and cross country skiing.

This was a really fun short hike for the whole family. The trail was nice and there was a steep climb towards the end but totally worth it! The views were incredible of Utah Lake and the valley! There were several areas set up for campfires, something we will be back here to do next time. When you are driving up you hit a gravel road which is bumpy and takes a good 20 minutes until you hit the trailhead which is on your right. Our mid sized crossover made it up there just fine and we saw a lot of non 4WD vehicles up there as well so don't worry! Great hike, definitely will do this again!

This was a relatively easy trail, except for the very end where it gets pretty steep. The terrain at the end also can be a little slippery. But overall, this is an easy trail you could knock out in less than an hour. The views are absolutely stunning.

Gorgeous views! A bit steep in places for out-of-shapers; that is mostly at the end
