One of my favorite trails in this area!! I love hiking reverse to dog lake first and then around the loop, that way you see views of the big mountains in the background the whole time. If you’re feeling adventurous and have a whole day to hike, you can continue up to Gobblers Knob. Great hike with beautiful views!!

LOVED this hike. Tough climb to start but then it was a fun, mostly flat trail until a steep descent back to the car. The views of the snowy mountains were phenomenal and the aspens still had some color in places. We added the spur to Dog Lake so clocked about 9 miles. We went counter-clockwise but thought either way would be great. There was snow and ice in spots but it was very manageable. Saw only 2 other people and no moose. The only thing that would improve this hike is to allow dogs!

Amazing views and such a fun loop! All the elevation hits you in the beginning and then you roll along the ridges for a majority.

Beautiful trail but would recommend wearing pants as the trail gets quite overgrown past the mill a/dog lake trail junction. Saw a moose!

I did the trail counter-clockwise without stopping at Dog lake and clocked around 7 miles. Bring sunscreen and a hat and enjoy the relative solitude of a hike so close to the city.

Great workout trail. Beau views and well kept trail. A little narrow and steep in spots but it’s one of SLCs best.

I love how few people you see while hiking up the 'long way' (as I call it). I usually go all the way to dog lake for a picnic lunch before hiking back down the 'short way'. The views on the trail are stunning and I've seen moose everytime I've hiked this trail.
