This is a greta hike for families as there is something for everyone. Don't be surprised if you come across hikes, mountain bikers and horses on this trail. The trail is found by parking at the lower lot at Snowbasin Resort. Follow the gravel road past the silver metal gate for 0.75 miles. Follow the road straight ahead when you reach the old campground. Look for an information board next to an old gate. This is the beginning of the trail.

Trail was pretty snow packed - I had coils on but you probably could have made it without. View at the top was unbeatable. Took me about 3 hours round trip!

Great easy hike that’s good for anyone of all ages. Out and back in about 3 hours and it was a leisurely pace. Spikes were helpful today in some parts but given the weather you could have made it without.

We loved this hike!! It's shady most of the way. Lots of beautiful wildflowers and trees. We saw moose which was also very exciting! The view on top is amazing!

One if my favorite out and backs. Fairly smooth, clean trail. Great variety of trees--Quakies, Oaks, Maples, Pines. Nice trail to introduce newer riders to the pleasures of mountain bikes while still interesting to more experienced riders. Want more workout or excitement? Simply crank up your speed. Beautiful view from the top. Several hawks generally circle overhead. I've seen plenty of deer in the evenings and even a massive black moose.

Loved this hike! Stunning views, nice shade, gorgeous flowers, relatively easy but still got a work out in. Stumbled upon a rattlesnake so be careful. :)

I really enjoyed this hike! I brought my 5 month old puppy on the hike (she was on a leash) and I thought it was a quite easy hike. Great views on the way up and the view on the top was great! We started the hike on a Friday at about 11 and the trail had moderate traffic. It was about 50/50 cyclists and hikes but everyone was quite courteous of each other. I will definitely do this hike again!

Pretty gentle climb up to a spectacular view of Ogden and the Great Salt Lake. Beautiful foliage along the way. Need to share the trail with lots of mountain bikers.

Very easy trail to hike , trail is in great condition I'd rate this trail as easy we hiked 3 miles in 1 hour 37 minutes to the over look , we continued up Sardine Trail 1 mile then handed back . There are a few benches to sit and rest .. Great trail for Horses, biking , hiking , running .. Or a good stroll.
The views are Amazing , colors are popping right now .. One of my favorite hikes

My wife and our 2 year old twins love this hike, there is a little bit of everything for everyone. Don't be surprised if you come across hikes, mountain bikers and horses on this trail. Often times we venture down all the little trails that come across Maples.

We have taken several of our friends, their kids and also our parents on this hike. It is perfect for any age and people of any skill set. Enjoy!

Love this trail! It's very peaceful and shaded. It's perfect for after work because it's not too steep. I would say it's an easy trail. Make sure you bring big spray.

For a mountain biking trail this is fantastic a lot of densely shaded Trail but breaking out into beautiful views and overlooks and thrilling smooth downhill

Nice trail but could be better marked on the maps near the snowbasin parking lot. View from the top was gorgeous. Will hit Sardine Peak soon

This trail is awesome for any family, my 2 & 5 year old loved it. They were exhausted by the time it was done, but the scenery was great and it stayed a lot cooler than other trails.
