What a beautiful hike. Micro spikes are needed to traverse some of the icier parts. Strava had me at 3.8 miles before I had to turn around due to lack of snow shoes. God bless the people who trudged thru the snow and created the path. They had it much more difficult than I did. All in all a breathtaking experience if you can handle the climb!

Nice little outing... I’m all about yak tracks! Others seem to be ok without them, it depends on how well you know your limits

Trail was great today. Not many people out especially before 10:30 am or so. You should probably have spikes or something after about halfway up. The last third of the hike was basically empty but I would recommend spikes and poles if you have them. I only made it to wildcat ridge today, after that you’d probably want snow shoes. The snow was mid thigh deep and there were no tracks from previous hikers to pack the snow down so I turned back.

trail was pretty easy to navigate up to the meadow. after that it was less trodden and more difficult. We ended up turning back before the top, but if you have snowshoes you should be able to make it.

There was a few inches of snow on the ground and it got pretty slippery towards the top but most of the trail was nice and peaceful. Didn’t see anyone until about 9:30 am. Overall, great winter hike.

Great wide trail with space for your dogs but after the first mile it gets narrow and more remote. Really enjoyed it! The trail started icy around 10:30am but by noon on my way down had turned slushy except for the last wider part which was well worn and still icy. Bring yak tracks. Saw deer tracks on the trail. Beautiful meadowy basin at the end covered in snow!

HikingGreat!IcySnow

11/2: what a great hike! The first part is busy with people, but I only saw three others on my way up/down after that. It was pretty cold this morning (7-9:00) before the sun came over the ridge, and there’s snow after the first 3/4 or so, but it’s not slippery. The views of the mountains are amazing and the meadow is super cool! (You get to look down on Mount Olympus and over the valley)

I had the mountain all to myself for a few hours by getting up several hours before dawn. This was my first time hiking to the back of Neff’s Canyon. I first climbed onto the Wildcat Ridge before heading back down to the pass into Millcreek. Lots of newly toppled trees on the Millcreek side. The leaves in Thayne Canyon were incredible. I bet they’ll be even better next week.

Good hike that’s super close to SLC. Elevation gain was true to map - the way down was a bit more tough (on the knees) and quite some loose rocks/dirt. Great place for the pups too!
