Awesome views! great trail! I went on a Saturday and there was a decent amount of traffic, mostly razors and dirtbikes and people shooting guns, less traffic once you got into the actual canyon! I live in eagle mountain utah and will be doing this trail again for multiple uses!

Hiked on 5/21/16 and 6/14/16. Trail is on the road. Nice walk, except the last 0.5ish mile to the top. Small, slippery rocks... walk on the sides. View from the top is beautiful. Nice quiet Sat morning hike up with dogs. Many trucks and ATVs were heading up at about 2pm when we were walking back down. The Tuesday we hiked up, we were completely alone except for one Rocky mountain power truck.

Really a fun hike. best part is no one else really thinks to hike it. my advice is to get to the top via isreal canyon, and if you can arrange for a shuttle, then take the ridge north for like 4 or 5 miles and it'll dump you right into silver lake in eagle mountain. be careful during hunting season. view from the top are epic

We hiked this today with the whole family and our dog. We only hiked up to the little handmade teepee and back which was about 2.3 miles. Pretty easy hike. There is a lot of vehicle traffic on this trail, including ATV's, Dirt Bikes, etc. Had fun looking around for "treasure" as our kids call it but decided to head back when we noticed a lot of people target shooting in the area. Sunday was probably a popular time for folks to go shooting up there so we weren't too alarmed. We will probably be back to do the full hike to the top but will choose a less busy time. There are some amazing views of Utah Lake up this trail and definitely worth the effort!

This is a very nice early season hike if you want to avoid snow and mud with a great view of the Wasatch Mountains from North Salt Lake to Mount Nebo
