Great winter trail. We had toddlers and they enjoyed the powder! Not too steep or icy today.
Great trail, awesome for biking.
Easy trail, pretty scenery, perfect for a Sunday afternoon walk. This is good for kids, as well. There were many people and lots of mountain bikes. Most people riding their bikes were polite, but a few were quite rude.
Great hike. Very gradual incline. Not to hard for our 3 kids. Lots of mountain bike traffic, but we didn't mind.
Great little hike, not difficult at all, although it is rocky in certain areas and you share the trail with mountain bikers. Usually we park on Snowbasin road (by the Wheeler trailhead and walk across the street to the Green Pond trailhead. At the end of Green Pond we connect up with the #12 Snowbasin trail which will run you back to the Green Pond trail and back to the road, making a nice 4.5 mile loop. We try to hit the pond on our way out, usually as a time to rest and eat a little before going home. Have fun, it's a great little hike!
This is a family favorite. Beautiful, cool air, typically not crowded and has a picnic table by the pond. Little kids can easily do this.
I took my kids ages 8 and 10 on this hike. It is not difficult and is pretty. We parked at the point where the Old Snow Basin road is closed and hiked to Green pond. It was 2.75 miles each direction. There are also closer places to park to hike to the pond as well.
