Shaded most of the way, steady incline, and nothing really at the end, but it was a beautiful hike. We brought our 5lb dog and she did great. Go left at the fork and cross the bridge for the right path!

It is a pretty hike. The worst part is that you have to walk a half mile from parking to the trailhead, and THEN you start the hike. And there isn’t anything majestic or amazing at the end. But the actual hike is pleasant and easy. It is not steep or rocky, and it was not crowded although we did pass about 20 people total. Some pretty wildflowers along the way.

Went snowshoeing up here last week. Went at noon on a Thursday. Not a soul on the trail. There was about 12-15 inches of new snow. Great trail to offer solidarity. Had to either go around or under trees bent over with snow.

Nice trail for snowshoeing. Gradual climb. After you pass the junction you are in the trees with limited views in the winter

Nice area for snowshoeing. I took my daughter and her boyfriend on his first snowshoe. We only got a little past the trail junction.

Not a bad hike, but there are better ones. Pros: The climb is gradual with no really steep sections, and there is shade. You hike near a stream, which is nice. Cons: Parking is a half mile from the trail head, there is a bunch of poison ivy, the 2nd half of the trail is overgrown, there are a lot of bugs, and there is no real payoff view at the end- Just the stream and a lot of aspens. Tip: Make sure to wear long pants, and don't go when it's hot.

This trail has lovely fall colors!! Due to a recent storm there’s a good bit of trees/branches down throughout the trail.

Not my favorite trail, especially due to flies and hornets everywhere. There is NO little flowing stream here (at least not in September) however it looked like it’s been a long time since the little stream has seen any water. The tiny bit of water you could see in a few places was Stagnant & looked disease ridden. That would explain all the bugs, and my dog kept trying to drink it. Trail wasn’t kept as debris and fallen trees were everywhere. Colors are starting to change so that was beautiful, but otherwise there are so many other beautiful trails you can take your dog in Utah

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.
