Really fun hike up to scenic vista point. The trail itself is fairly easy to follow but there is a fair amount of overgrowth on the sides to push through. While our little dog appreciated the packed earth trail, we did have some concerns considering the narrowness of the trail and the several snakes we encountered in the overgrowth on the sides. You do have to park quite a ways away from the trail head, so once you start seeing signs, (we only saw one official parking area) start trying to find parking there or along the street. The elevation is subtle but makes it progressively tiring.

First half is nice. Second half is really overgrown. Walked through some grenery which resulted in some allergic reaction in my arms and legs, but not my daughter. 90% in the shade, and parallels water, so cool in temperature.

Since there is no parking at the trailhead, I dropped the kids (15, 11, 9, 7) off there and let them get a head start. I parked about 3/4 of a mile away and hoofed it up there and met them up the trail a little ways. The trail had nicely packed snow and we were fine in our hiking shoes and snow boots. I love the contrast of white snow with the red bark twigs. This little hike followed a pretty creek and had some easy ups and downs. We stopped at the stone marker for Killyon’s Canyon since the trail beyond was really muddy. Great little hike!

Nice & not too crowded. You cannot park at the trailhead, so go ahead pull over to park when you start seeing signs to do so.

A bit overgrown and the felled trees to cross were a bit rough. Overall great hike for Emigration Canyon. Shade for over 90% of the way. So many hummingbirds.
