The Jacobs Ladder Trailhead (N40 29' 39", W111 48' 59") is the beginning of several different trails. You want to locate the trail on the north side of the parking area heading directly north up the slope. The trail is easy to identify as it was once a road used to access Lone Rock / Movie Rocks, but the road has been closed to vehicle travel for many years and is mostly reclaimed. The road is now just a trail used by hikers and mountain bikes. Be aware that there is no gap in the fence to begin the trail, you must climb under the fence to begin your trek. If you look farther south you'll see a gap in the fence that begins the Jacob's Ladder Trail. That is not the correct trail for this hike. From the trailhead hike up the the trail approximately 300-yards until you reach a steep descent. The top of this hill is the Jacobs Ladder Trail / Lone Rock / Storm Window Arch junction (N40 29' 46", W111 48' 55"). The Jacobs Ladder Trail turns east (right) and follows the ridge line, the Lone Rock / Storm Window Arch trail descends the gulley. Once at the bottom you'll find a small stream. Cross this stream and then you'll notice two trails. One veers to the left which is for Storm Window Arch. The other veers off to the right and this is for Lone Rock.

Confused on whether on not it's dog friendly here. Brought my dog however a disgruntled biker told me they're not allowed and proceed to yell back to me that I'd be fined. However the no dogs beyond this point sign is only visible if you're exiting the trail leading me to believe they are allowed up.

Hiked from Draper Cycle Park, past Ghost Falls, and then up the Lone Rock/Movie Rock (Storm Window Arch) trail. From the upper Ghost Falls TH, it is about 1 mile up to Movie Rock and 1200 feet vertical. This is NOT an easy climb. Took me just over an hour to do the climb from GFTH to Movie Rock; 30 minutes to come down. Great views of the Salt Lake Valley, Oquirrh Mountains, Utah Lake, and Mt. Timpanogos.

Hiked from Coyote Hollow not knowing that there was a trailhead on the Upper Corner Canyon road which would have saved a lot of miles.I loved the views. Sections of the trail are very steep. Next time I want to go all the way to the summit on this one.

This is a very steep hike with little scenery until the very end. However, the end is amazing and worth every step!
