This trail follows the Dry Creek which currently had water in it today. The water comes out of a storm drain half way up the trail so the upper half is dry. When there is water there are multiple stream crossing to negotiate. Some of these crossing have log which several only have small rocks so you will get your feet wet. Lots of trees along the stream bed.

A great hike down in the bottom.of the dell! Several creek crossings, although it was mostly a dry creek bed at the time. Only things I didn't love about this trail were the abundance of horse manure, and the myriad intersecting and splitting trails - very easy to take a wrong turn! Best to hike this trail with the alltrails app running. Otherwise it's a great escape from civilization in the middle of Sandy!

This trail is beautiful up until about a quarter of a mile after the last creek crossing. The last part of the trail is thistle-ridden, but you do get some good views of the mountain. It's difficult to complete this trail until about mid-July because there are multiple creek crossings. The creek is fairly wide and runs swiftly until mid- to end-of-July. The trail is overgrown and there are many trails branching off that lead to private property. I took the wrong trail twice and had to back-track. It would be wise to have the Alltrails map out to avoid getting lost because there are no trail markings.

The creek is still not dry and the trail is not marked very well, with some trails leading you to overgrown areas

Unable to complete because the creek wasn't dry! We'll have to come back in August once it dries up.

should update description to say go through tunnel/bridge. Another jogger and myself both headed into the woods for lots of dead ends. when finally on the right path, it was a very nice run.

I’m a BRAND NEW hiker but It was gorgeous! the wood chips kept getting in my shoes. It may be uncomfortable for older folks since the wood chips also make it a little bit more difficult to walk.

Although you can hear cars a lot of the time, I enjoy the gully feel this trail has, and how it feels like being in the mountains while in the city. Its fun jogging this mainly flat but also versatile trail. I like mixing it with other trails close/intercrossing this one (sego lily and such).

Fun trail and very close if you live in the Salt Lake Valley. You weave in and out of the woods on this trail so about 1/2 the time you are out in the sun so bring a hat. Didn’t find the horse manure on the trail to be a problem at all.

Very pretty and easy

The trail was easy, to walk around and to navigate through (without signs). The reason I gave it 2 stars is that every couple of feet (and I'm not exaggerating) there would be animal droppings, likely from horses, in the middle of the trail. It's not small droppings, but big piles of droppings. It was hard to have to constantly look out for them and walk around them so we didn't get any souvenirs with us. We turned around when the smell became unbearable. I don't think we would go back again.

This was a fun trail with a variety of scenery. Mountains, trees, snow, ice, water. I loved it coming from Phoenix where we don't have a lot other than sand and rock. Not marked but easy to follow with the app. There are a ton of side trails.

I couldn't find any trail signs for the trail so I used the AllTrails route to follow. This surprised me because the trail is shown on a map at the trailhead. Unlike other trails is the area it's much narrower. A small portion of the trails is closed so I had to take a minor detour and connect back up with the trail below the closed area
