Horrible and overgrown trail. Lots of stinging nettle. Confusing in 3-4 parts and no signs. Saw 5 rattlesnakes on the trail.
pros: only saw two people, quiet, not too hard. Shaded for most of it.
Took 2.5 hours up and 2 hours down.

Decided to go for a “quick” Sunday hike. Made it to the ridge in an hour and 45 minutes. It was hard but we enjoyed it. Only 2 or 3 places that still had snow on the trail but it was pretty easy to get around it.

This trail was harder than expected. We couldn’t make it to the top because the snow started to get deep. Even if we were prepared with the right shoes it was near impossible to tell where the trail went. On the way down there was one small snake in the trail that was easy to walk around but further down my dog found a rattle snake right next to the trail. Thankfully was not bit but I did notice lots of holes on the way up I was nervous about. The trees didn’t have any leaves yet in April so maybe later summer is a more scenic and better time to go. Definitely want to be in shape for this one!

We did this trail today (7/24) and it is HUGELY overgrown. 6 foot tall weeds lined a lot of the trail, along with loads of stinging nettle and bushes. Tons of flies. It is gorgeous when you can see through the weeds and some of the more clear spots have pretty fields of wildflowers. I wouldn't recommend to anyone who isn't at least mildly active.

I like to do this one every year. Overall it is pretty steep continuous climbing with some switch backs. Once you reach the saddle rock, you have great views of Cache Valley and Box Elder. You can continue this trail south and go down Cold Water Lake trail at Stewart's Cone, or keep going and come down Rattlesnake Trail in Sardine Canyon, and find the geo marker on top of Box Elder Peak. (Make sure you have someone to come pick you up. Lol)

My daughter and I hiked up as far as we could go on Saturday Evening. We got to a point where there was still snow on the trail and it was quite muddy so we came back down. But it was a really good hike, not too hard, but good views of Logan as we hiked.
