Beautiful trail, so much to see! One of my favorites. Starts in the Temple Quarry parking lot. I'd recommend walking the super short Temple Quarry trail first, lots of interesting information!

I hiked this trail on a Sunday afternoon in July and hardly encountered anyone. There were a handful of bikers and a few hikers and campers, but otherwise it was very peaceful. It was a very steady incline the whole way out; if you want a shorter hike, I'd recommend parking along the road further up from the Temple Quarry lot and dropping in to the Little Cottonwood trail from there.

Note: Many reviews listed under the Temple Quarry trail include the Little Cottonwood trail also.

Nice easy walk along the creek, very nice during the run off. Watch out for the bikes
