My wife and I did this a couple days ago. It took us about 4 hours round trip, but we kept a pretty decent pace the entire way. It is straight up just about the entire way - bring lots of water! It is beautiful hiking with mixtures of pine and aspen trees, wildflower meadows and steep canyons. The view of SLC in the pictures is from the very beginning, not the top (we found that out on our way down after no view of the city at the top). At the top you can continue right or left on further trails that will take you up to the peaks. That was about 3.5+ miles in, so we turned around. Overall hike ended up more around 8.0 miles round trip. As others said, keep right at the first few Y-intersections.
