This is an easily accessible hike for those in the SLC area. The trail rating of 'hard' is certainly accurate as it is quite steep and there are lots of portions with uneven footing. Not very trafficked, but most everyone on the trail brings their dogs (myself included) and lets them roam off-leash so if you aren't an animal lover this might not be for you. My full description of the hike can be found below:

Love this hike! There must be two routes. When leaving the parking lot the one on the left is on a pebble paved route that's easier. To the right is a more challenging route. But it's amazing! A lot of rocks and boulders. It's uphill and coming back the hardest part is not rolling your ankle. About 2 miles in the trail gets kind of lost with the fallen trees and foliage, but it picks up about 1/4 mile later. Didn't get much farther because the sun was starting to go down around 6 pm. I'll be going back for sure next week to explore it more.

Steep rocky and hot to the rope swing. Fun but the creek was mostly dried up when we got there.
