I've only done this hike from the trailhead on Wasatch. That hike up isn't very enjoyable, but it's not long and the reservoir is beautiful.

7/4 - Quick morning hike to a beautiful resevoir and amazing SLC views. Didn't see a ton of people, but imagine it gets pretty busy.

I started off Wasatch blvd and that part has a lot of 2 foot log risers (would be harder for kids) nice views. It was in the 90's so crossing the streams when you go around the reservoir felt great. I ended on Stone Mountain Lane. That path down was smooth and easier than coming off Wasatch. Overall, fun hike.

Listen to Kris Oldroyd below. He nailed the path. Take the granite one. Not a lot of foot traffic.
