Hiked 3/4 mile up with our 2 year old hiking on his own. It’s a great “training” trail for kids! Also has a stream and playground at the beginning for kids to play.

Easy little hike mostly in the sun and right up against the golf course. Bonus if you find a stray ball. Good for small kids.

Perfect for young family with young kids. My kids all had a blast and even the 2 year old could walk it. Shaded the whole way. Nice and quiet.

Quick, easy trail. Shaded the whole way. Lots of pretty wildflowers blooming right now.

Trail: awesome, forested, convenient location. Whining 6 year-old: not so awesome. Had to pull a dad move and "turn the car around and go home!" Would love to come finish the trail on a happier day.

An easy lunch hour loop. Trail this week was a little sloppy in the lower elevations but dried up fairly quickly. Traffic was relatively low at noon-time.

Highly traversed trail. The trail this morning had some serious slick areas. Spikes are a great idea. Great early morning run otherwise.

Very enjoyable. It’s not flat but it’s also not terribly difficult. It’s a nice easy workout if you don’t want to tackle a hard or moderate trail.

Great run with an excellent views. Goes right around the golf course. Well marked and well used by locals walking and running. I always feel safe and enjoy the views on Gibbs loop.

Hike is easy, would be great for trail running, but you essentially just go around a golf course. Too close to civilization for me.

Fantastic trail for daily running.

The trail itself isn't bad but it's next to a golf course a good portion of the way. Too suburban for me.

Great trail to take a dog on. I love being in the trees, shade and fall leaves.

Good hike for kids. We took them during sunset and it was beautiful. Leaves are starting to change colors. Recommend this hike in the Fall.

Good hike for a family. Beautiful scenery and good for bikes as well. There were also restrooms along the way. However, the signs and path were confusing at times.

Went hiking here on 7-21-18. It was a horrible hiking experience. Despite someone yelling at my dog and myself for allowing a dog on this trail even though they’re allowed, the scenery was not pretty at all. I’m sure it’s beautiful in the spring and the fall but not so much now. The trails were confusing as well. The hike (or more like walk) itself was fun and my dog had fun. Probably will never do this hike again.

Nice trail near Ogden, UT. Some parts are overgrown, but elevation climb is pretty good.
