This was a great ~7 mi hike. Fall foliage was gorgeous and the view of SLC is awesome. Took us about 3.5 hours.

Loved this hike!! Nice uphill and great workout. The views along the way are outstanding also!! Right now the leaves are stunning... get out there and try it in the next three weeks!! It's only going to get better!! And watch out for rattlesnakes..... there was a big one on the trail yesterday- he was super mad about something and rattled his tail at me for a while before he slid back into the scrub oak. Just be careful and enjoy it!!

Trail isn’t well marked in places. I had to consult the map a couple times to find the way back down in places. Other than the fog at the top(clouds) and the snow and rain it was a lovely trip. Well traveled and lots of friendly people.

Beautiful trail! Lots of clouds up at the peak this morning. A few parts near the peak were a little slick due to packed snow along the trail. Lots of friendly faces and dogs on the trail this morning. The trail markers were a bit confusing. I had to confirm that we were on the right trail a few times with some other hikers.
