Climb 4,000 feet on this great trail to fantastic views over the Wasatch Valley and Salt Lake City. This is a steep, Class 3, climb up 4,000 to the top of a peak with great views over Salt Lake City and the surrounding Wasatch Mountains. You will be surprised at how abruptly you leave the bustling city below and find yourself high in an alpine environment. This is a good peak for budding mountaineers to start with.

this trail is not to be underestimated, and not for the faint of heart. the elevation gain is steep, intense, and immensely rewarding. if you're willing to scramble to the top, you will be rewarded with stunning views.

First real mountain hike. The snow was challenging for the last mile near the top since I only had hiking boots, but I was able to take it slow and make it through. The rock scramble was intimidating since I hadn't done anything like it before, but again, taking it slow I made it to the top and it was well worth it.

Damn hard, but super fun trail! The last part i would say is 4th and 5th class terrain, rocky and steep, wouldn't advise hiking it with snow/ice. Fun hike that'll make your calves burn

Man, what a hike! It can be quite strenuous getting to the top, so start early and bring plenty of water. The views are spectacular, to say the least.

Definitely still a lot of snow up near the top. Trail is actually 7.2 miles so a little longer than what is stated.

Early March - upper half was snow. No tools so did not want to chance the last 100 ft of elevation. Beautiful views. Only 4 because of the noise from the freeway for the first hour.

Super great hike. Absolutely beautiful views of the winter landscape. Definitely worth the effort. Be sure to have campons and tools available as the top 1500 or so feet still have plenty of snow.

Challenging hike, exacerbated by the fact that the snow was hip height! Offers greats views. Would suggest going with someone who has climbed it before (especially if in winter).

Killer hike. Cool view from the top and super rewarding once you get up there. Be careful once you reach the saddle and climb up the rest of the way. Lots of crumbling rocks.
