The trail climbs steeply the entire way. The summit is really a long ridge and have view of parts of Salt Lake city, Parley's Canyon, Lambs Canyon and of course Mill Creek Canyon where the trail starts. If you want to hike this trail prior to July 1st you have to either walk up the road 3 miles or take the pipeline trail because of a gate at Maple Grove that closed the road for winter.

Hiked it on Pioneer day. I thought I was getting on the Pipeline trail, but actuially was on this one. It was extremely steep. Total gained elevation is approximate 1987 ft . I was super glad I didnt quit and go back down there... the views were worth every bit of pain

Hiked it in the early morning. Super steep but plenty of shade. The wildflowers were in full bloom. Absolutely gorgeous hike!

It took longer than anticipated, about 3 hrs round trip with two dogs. It's gorgeous but hard!

I sunrise hiked this and it was steep and tough and a lot of the trail wasn't covered so it was hot on the way down. Great view of Parleys and the valley though.

Steepness is moderate but worth noting. It's too hot to do mid-day now....that was my bad. My four year old son walked up this mountain. So....it's doable by most, but it's pretty difficult for an "easy" summit. Features a sunflower field that is just breathtaking.

Steep, shaded, challenging, beautiful. Hiked at sunset last night. At the top you can see the Uintahs, Mt Olympus, Kennecott, Antelope Island. Did see on rattlesnake. Keep an eye out.
