Steep and rocky at first, but a super enjoyable hike. It was so pretty by the Reservoir! The only downside is the crowds on the trail.

Only about half a mile to get there but steep. Nice bridge to sit in and put feet in the creek coming down a little ways up. My kids enjoyed taking a break there. Reservoir is beautiful.

Another fun hike with kids. It's a steep hike but my four year old made it without help so is not too bad. The lake was beautiful and the trail was easy to follow with the signs.

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.

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.
