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.

Great hike! Amazing view, you can see right into the salt lake valley. Is pretty steep, but not that long. I tracked a little over 3 miles from the trailhead round trip. Some parts are a little wet, but mostly still dry.

So beautiful!! Really muddy today and the road is closed which adds an extra 3 miles (RT) to the hike but worth it.

Hiked 10-21-17. The gate to the trailhead is closed for the season so you have to walk 1.5ish miles on the road before reaching trail, adding an additional 3 miles roundtrip. The trail is completely clear of ice and snow, making it a nice later season summit. But since everything is dried up and the leaves are fallen, I imagine it's much more scenic in the Summer or very early Fall.

The trail was muddy in spots. Nice views all the way up. Not a technical trail but steep.

Absolutely beautiful up there today. Pretty warm with direct sunlight. Hike took about 1 hr and 15 mins up, roughly 50 down. Very muddy at parts and certainly slippery; would be beneficial to have trekking pools and/or gaiters. Absolutely worth it! No real color changes yet - some faint color sporadically but it definitely isn't peaking for a few days, at least.
