Very enjoyable trail. After 3.2 miles, became too deep and I turned back. Great views.

Could not complete the whole loop....at top of grove creek there was no trail and very deep snow. You could do with snow shoes, I was just in spikes. Snow is packed down and runnable to about 3.5 miles

Hiked up Grove Creek and down Battle Creek. Spikes needed after fresh snow in the morning but the snow on the lower part of the trail was gone by the time we finished the loop in the afternoon (warm sunny day). There were no tracks past the top of Grove Creek so we had to break a new trail connecting us to Battle Creek. Snowshoes HIGHLY recommended for the traverse because we repeatedly broke through the snow knee and waist deep, which slowed us down and caused the traverse to take 2 hours. Follow the map to avoid getting lost if you’re the first one there after fresh snow. Icy on Battle Creek.

Parked at Grove Creek, hiked BST to Battle Creek, hiked up Battle, over, and down Grove. Beautiful. Icy, especially up Battle. Spikes a must for making it pleasant - we fell even with spikes on. Timp came in and out of view due to the beautiful mist and clouds.

Highly suggest parking at Battle Creek, walking actoss no man’s land first, and then going up Grove Creek for the loop! Grove Creek has hardly any ice, spikes not needed. One you get to the falls you’ll need spikes to get to Indian Springs, and then I wore them all the way to about the end of Battle Creek. Falls are so pretty! Hardly anyone on the trail! Also, wear sunscreen! It’s January but Utah is pretending it’s April

Hiked the loop on Jan 12, 2021. Went up Battle Creek and down Grove Creek because Battle Creek is steep and my knees prefer going up the steep side. Battle Creek trail was completely frozen for the first 1.5 miles and you'll definitely need spikes/crampons. Packed snow trail after that and across the flats and top of Grove Creek. The majority of the Grove Creek side is dry/muddy. I took my spikes off at the "Heart Bench". Great loop, beautiful in winter.

Muddy and icy in spots today (November 23rd, 2020). Could've probably used spikes at parts, but did fine in his hiking shoes. Weather was great! Wore just a tank top on top well over half the time.

Some exposure on the grove creek side but little risk. Dirt roads and hunters at the top.

Beautiful evening loop. Some colors still up there but many areas where the leaves just blanket the ground. Lush and beautiful with lots of water.

I went up Battle Creek and went down Grove Creek. It was perfect I think Battle Creek is steeper than Grove Creek. It took me 2 hours and 40 minutes for the round trip including walking back to the parking lot.

This trial is so unique! You walk along the edge of the mountain for a good part of it, which features breathtaking views. This is probably one of my favorite all-time trails.

Great hike. Left the Grove trailhead around 8:00. Any later and I think the sun would have been above the rocks and would have baked us (it was a hot day, upper 80’s). Very pretty hike up the rocks, then through a trail in the woods, into a meadow that was gorgeous with big sweeping views. Hiking down the Battle Creek side leaves something to be desired as you go through the construction, but you soon end up on a trail along a creek. Overall a great hike. It took us about 3.5 hours, with a few short stops along the way.

The Grovecreek side is a gravel trail that turns into a dirt trail with steep drops on one side. It turns into some forested area and then opens to fields at the top. The Battlecreek side has been altered quite a bit, but is mostly a wide (sometimes steep) dirt trail and road. At a quick pace (and a group of fit women) with a few stops for pictures, it took us about 3 hrs to complete the entire loop. If you park a car at each canyon, that will save time hiking back to the starting point.
