Good park trail with lots of places to hop out of the way to stay physically far from others. Nobody (other than us) was wearing a mask, so it was nice to be able to get far away from them.

Super Nice! A quick little walk and few picnic spots.

Wide paved trail with several short stair sections and sunflowers lining the path. There were a few dirt path offshoots crisscrossing the park, but I didn't take any of those - looked like most of the folks with dogs did, though. It is literally right along 215 for a ways, so constant road noise. A good trail for a quick walk with a couple of great views.

Some parts were wet. Next to the highway it does not give you the all- natural feeling.

Great short, paved trail! Definitely recommend. Nice wide paved trail with fantastic views of the city one one side and up close mountain views on the other. I-215 is between you and the mountains so some traffic noise, but not bad at all. There are some dirt side trails, some that increase difficulty or others offer cut thrus. Good for families since there is also a playground and seemed dog friendly. Only complaint would be that I wish it was longer.

I always preface my reviews with, I’m an out of shape lady! Hey, that’s important to know. This is a great path for beginners. It is paved, but offers dirt paths for variety. Also, there is TONS OF SCENERY and VIEWS. Which is typically rare for a small loop hike, with a low climb, and isn’t highly trafficked with people. It is important to note there are sections with stairs, however, you can see others have paved out paths along the side with their strollers. There are places to stop and sit, black beetles (a fair amount, fun for kids into insects), birds, we saw/heard a hummingbird. We’ve seen people with bikes, dogs—For being out of shape—we can do the loop in about 20 minutes. I’m sure the average John could do it in 10. There are bathrooms here, I believe there are water fountains (I haven’t checked). If not, there’s a 7/11 very close nearby. The only reason I gave 4 of 5 stars is I wish the loop was a little longer.

Nice place for a walk along a paved trail on a spring afternoon. It was nice to have a series of steps to tackle. Pretty views of Mt. Olympus and the Salt Lake Valley.

Nice little walk with paved and dirt trails, along with a sweet view overlooking the city. All of the trees right now are pretty bare, but I imagine when spring has sprung this place is lush!
