Nice trail , however not a easy one . Long walk on the road following gps . Easy to Moderate trail . About 2 1/2 hour for the whole loop , starting from the parking lot in town . The view from the top was worth the hike .

Love this hike. You start and finish this loop on paved trail and roads. The trail itself was in excellent condition with no technical spots. I thought it was an easy 4-mile hike. Possibly Easy + for the length and some elevation gain. My watch said 650 ft of total elevation gain by the end. Which isn't bad at all.
The views on this hike are amazing. You get to see so much of Park City on this hike. The mountain views are spectacular. I highly recommend this hike.

Nice and easy suburban day hike looping around a hill facing Park City mountain. We saw deer, magpies, and a couple of hawks. South and west-facing portions were dry, but north and east had some snow, ice and mud. Final stretch along busy Deer Valley Dr. is kind of a bummer after the pretty views.

It started out with beautiful views and great trail. But after about 3 miles or so it dumps you onto roads where you have to walk on roasts to your car. Maybe I did something wrong but I followed the gps.

This trail combines with several others- we actually started at the Lost Prospector trail head and it merged into Gambles Loop and Masonic. Narrow trail used by bikers and hikers alike. Great views overlooking the Park City Main Street area. Good hike, but it was a hot day and there was not a lot of shade. Would prefer this hike in the fall!

So the trail, once you find it, is pretty decent with great views and wildlife. We actually came across a moose! Unfortunately, finding the trail head was ridiculous, and it follows other trails: Lost Prospector and Masonic. The App gets 5 stars, because without the GPS tracking and live map....no telling where we would have hiked. Overall, a good hike.

Nice hike, well marked. Recommend the clockwise direction and the grade is more gradual. Will definitely be back on snow shoes this winter.

I walked to the Aerie Road trail head from my downtown Park City hotel and was clearly marked. I would recommend doing the loop in the clockwise direction as I did since slower uphill than if do the loop counterclockwise direction. Views of downtown Park City are first if going clockwise and nice.

Good to take a hat since majority of hike is exposed, though broken up with small copses. Although not all the trails are marked on the AllTrails Map, I easily found and used the "4:20 Hike Lost Prospector-Gambel Oak-Masonic Loop" map as it kept me off most paved roads.

Easy to get to from the Town Lift area. If you walk up Aerie Drive (three spots for parking) there are two trail heads points Lost Prospector. It was a little confusing maneuvering the Lost Prospector and Gambel Loop. You will need to connect a bit via paved roads. The views of downtown are great. There isn't a lot of shade in parts so wear a hat.

Nice brisk hike - 3.7 miles in just over an hour. Easy to access, well-marked & maintained, nice views of Old Town Park City, Snowpark in Deer Valley. Saw a mule deer & some birds; middle 1/3 (Masonic) had snowfields & mud.
