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.

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.

This was an awesome hike. The gate is closed to cars until July 1st, so know that you need to walk a couple miles up the road to get to the trailhead, but it's a stunning hike the whole way up. Definitely not for the faint hearted. It's absolutely not easy, but doable if you're in at least decent shape! I definitely recommend this hike!

Reached summit with my son today. 1.5 mile hike from parking to the trailhead. Trail is steep and muddy for the first 1/2. Snow and watery trails to the summit. Plan on getting very wet, muddy and tired this time of year.

Attempted with family this weekend. Took the pipeline trail to this trail head ( 3 miles ) and this trail was good for about 3/4 of a mile. Then ice and snow covered the trail. Ended up turning back, and will wait till the snow melts a bit more. Took road back to the car, and that has ice/snow for about 1/4 mile of the 1.5 miles to the parking.

FYI 1.5 miles before you reach the trail head there is a gate that doesn't open until July 1. Rode was still completely covered in packed icy snow about 1/4 mile up from the gate. I was looking to move more quickly last night so I decided to wait and do this hike later in the season. The trail it self might not be snowy. Unsure. Also there was a sign saying a cougar was seen along the road just the day before.

Beautiful hike. Easy to do, was up and back in 4 hours due to a ton of snow. But well worth it once you're at the top

Beautiful, steep hike. Fairly hard but well worth the views.

This hike was definitely difficult for me as it has a steep incline (and I had a few too many beers the night before). However, it was beautiful at the top, great view!
