Beautiful hike. The trail is overgrown near the top, so make sure you bring pants. I was stung three times walking through the wildflowers.

Just finished Neffs Canyon to Thanes Peak with a friend and my dog. The trail was steep and rocky with spots where you will have to walk through the stream. Its a beautiful trail with little snippets of the Salt Lake Valley peaking through the trees and a truly amazing view if you can get to the ridge or peak. It is still quite snowy right after the meadow and can be slippery and soft in places, use caution. We were both in good hiking boots and made it through the snow. we were also able to find and uncover the spring near the top of the trail. it seems we were the first to drink from the ice cold spring this year! A really rewarding and underrated hike but not for the faint of heart!

Hiked to with a few hundred feet of the peak. Upper Neff's canyon meadow is very beautiful in the spring
