snowy/muddy but the views are worth it. Definitely longer then 4.6 miles, it was 5.6 miles when I recorded my trip. The trail on the map ends prior to the actual lookout. So just a heads up it's more like 5.6 miles but well worth it!

HikingGreat!

Had a great night hike to the Overlook. The trail was firm enough to just use microspikes and probably didn't even need them.

SnowshoeingGreat!Off trailSnow

Great snowshoeing location. Nothing like some deep powder to end the day! Once you get a bit higher, there is >4 feet of powder. We were the first tracks up.

Fun hike with my four daughters, ages 7–15. The trail was snowed over and icy in spots making it a little difficult. Everyone made it to the top in tennis shoes, however.

One of my favorite hikes I’ve done since moving to Utah. Don’t stop where the app says to, keep going and be rewarded with a great view! Worth the extra quarter mile. Well kept and wide trail. Just look out for bikes.

HikingGreat!

LOVE this trail! Was my first time, and fell in love. Keep going the extra 5 min to the top of the mountain, so rewarding!! And on the first clearing when you start the trail, take the side trail to the right that leads to the lil pond, it’s so worth it! My dogs loved it. The colors are stunning right now, and will continue to get better!
