A friend and I really enjoyed this hike this morning! The path was shady and beautiful and the views at the end were breathtaking! There was hardly anyone else on the trail. Moderate difficulty, mostly due to the high elevation. The trail name was marked as Lame Horse trail - not Hensky Overlook, but based on the pictures, it was easy to tell that this was the same trail. This is definitely one of my new favorite hikes in Utah!

Beautiful hike with a nice view of the east side of Timp at the end. I would recommend continuing to Bob's Knob for more great views of Timp and Aspen Grove.

gorgeous views. I went when it was raining and it was so beautiful and peaceful. wondering if anyone knows of a trail that goes to the waterfalls that you can see at the end of the trail?

beautiful hike! Well worth the incline at the end. The trailhead calls it horse trail 250.

I'm out of shape and really enjoyed this trail. It ends with a beautiful view. I had to take quite a few breaks on the steep parts near the peak, but it wasn't too bad.

Only 4 stars because the trail was super dusty and there was not much shade.

I drove quite a ways to hike this today. However, the road was closed due to a fire. I'm sure it's amazing, just have try another time. Beware that Alpine loop is closed in both directions today (Hwy 92).
