Trailhead has one, maybe two parking spots just down the hill, but not much as it is residential. That being said, the north side has the most spectacular fall foliage right now! Get up there soon! Even if you just want to turn back at the saddle and go through it again!

Nice trail for early autumn with leaves beginning to turn. The marked access point is has no parking so Wow Pine trail parking is your option.

Trail is nice but they have restricted parking from Interlaken area with tow away signs. Need to access by hiking up one mile up Wow Trail to reach the Loop or by coming in Dutch Hollow and hiking 1.5 miles up Donkey Ridge trail. Now a Lollipop trail from either trailhead.

We started the loop (going clockwise) about 6:30 pm for short a evening walk. Trail is fairly easy and we could trail run about 70% if it. The switchbacks on the northwest side are easier walked. I would rate this an Easy/moderate trail. Beautiful wildflowers mixed with scrub oak, and amazing view of Midway throughout.

Although rated as "moderate," I thought this was a pretty easy hike with great views of the entire Heber Valley, as you circle Phosphate Hill. The south side of the hill is exposed and the north side is pretty shady.

This hike ended up being 6.7 miles from the trailhead and back, which was quite a bit longer than we anticipated. We did the loop counter-clockwise, and the last half was much shadier and nicer than the first. Gorgeous wildflowers, including numerous sego lilies, and an eagle soaring overhead were the highlights. Worth the trek, would be good for trail-running, but no water so take your own.
