Good trail if you just want to stretch your legs or get a view of the valley. Not great if it’s nature you’re after. You hear the highway noise the entire time and end up basically in someone’s backyard at the top of the trail.

We didn’t start at the Victory Road trail head. We started at Ensign Peak and from there you can take a couple of paths that lead to Hell Canyon and go down. Nice hike, beautiful scenery and nice and shaded at the top and gets more exposed at the bottom. A bit over grown in some parts but beautiful view. There aren’t many trail markers so it can be quite easy to get turned around, but if you started from the actual trail head it would be better. Not super strenuous and a nice gentle incline on the way up
