This trail is in a fee area. The first part of the trail is exposed, so on a hot day, it can get pretty warm. Then the trail goes through trees. In the summer the trail is very lush and crosses streams. There are lots of wild flowers. If you go go another 100 yards to the left on the Ridge trail you'll reach a meadow where you can see down to The Heber Valley to the East, Lone Peak Wilderness to the North and Mt. Timpanogos to the West.

Very gorgeous hike, serval mountain lion tracks all over today, all different sizes. Posted some pics of them above, including one picture with some blood spots in the snow... some mouse or rabbit had just been breakfast before we got there...

Really cool trail, but it is very icy right now. You need good hiking boots or yaktrax or something to give you grip. We slipped several times.
Very pretty though!

This is a fun trail filled with some really cool views! It’s amazing to look back at the canyon and see all the layers and colors. Loved that. It’s steep. I could see kids and beginning hikers not enjoying this trail for the difficulty. It is a nice trail though. Between the little streams, animals, and basins, it is a very enjoyable/ slightly difficult trail with a great length

Hiked this trail and the Ridge Trail up to the Summit Trailhead as part of a loop hike. Good trail with great view of the sun rise lighting up the surrounding peaks

The first third of this hike is in the sun and the last fourth of it is as well. Nothing super amazing the first half, but after that it gets good. You pass a couple small streams, and then an open Meadow. You continue to follow the trail and come onto another Meadow. You then come to a fork in the trail and this is where the Pine Hollow trail ends. If you go to the left from here you will get to see some absolutely AMAZING views!! These views made the whole hike worth it!

Way fun!! Kind of difficult to find the trail head at the beginning because it is across the street from the parking lot by the bathrooms. During the hike you pass over 2 or 3 small streams and our dogs LOVED it! A little steeper at the beginning but definitely fun! Not too bad of a hike at all! Definitely worth a lot of a views, it was absolutely gorgeous!

We hiked this on Memorial day. Our GPS said that we walked 6.8 miles start to finish. Not sure why there is a discrepancy with the distance.

The trail is dry and some of the flowers are starting to bloom. It is a bit steep until you get to the loop portion, where is mellows a lot. The trail is currently only open for hiking. No bikes, etc. are allowed at the current time.

Loved this hike ! Narrow trail but it was dry and snow free up until you got passed the first meadow but still totally hikeable and worth the bit of mud to get to the final clearing !

Great trail with plenty of flexibility as far as where you want to go and how far. Great for snow shoeing in the winter. The first part is steep and then after that it gets easy. Soooo beautiful. Once you go to the meadow, if you take a right towards the timpooneke trailhead there's an awesome viewpoint.

Gorgeous hike in the fall!! It's steep the first mile but has wonderful views. The only reason I knocked it down one star is because it was hard to navigate which trails to go on because there are so many, we ended up hiking on a few different trails trying to figure out which one was the right one. But other than that it was great, will definitely be doing it again

We took our five children and started at about 7:30 am. The forest was beautiful and cool and there was practically nobody else on the trail. Great summer hike but only if you start early. All but our youngest (3 year old) hiked the entire way, and we stretched it out to a little over five miles. We will be back in the fall to walk amongst the yellow aspens.

Ended up back packing in up there Saturday morning and spent the night at the 2nd meadow! Kept filling up our water from the tiny brook at the meadow, tossed some Frisbee and enjoyed some BEAUTIFUL warm sunshine! Incredible Thunder and Lightning storm all night, what a SHOW it was! We ended up having to pack up camp in the rain Sunday morning and even though everything stayed dry through the night, it all got soaked packing it up in the rain which made for heavy backpacks for the 3 mile hike out. All-in-all the trip was about 7 miles and was a GREAT experience!

I really enjoyed this hike with my 2 dogs. At the first meadow we went left to climb the north section of the loop. There was still plenty of snow only on the northern section and the ridge trail section. The southern section was free of any snow. When we got to Salamander flats 6 wild turkeys were visible and gobbling. Light snow the entire 2.5 hrs hiking, perfect weather for me I don't like hot.

Beautiful trail. Needed spikes. Leave your parks card out on the dashboard or you'll get a ticket. There is a restroom at the trailhead open year-round. There was one stream crossing at this time of year but you can step across the snow banks. Reasonably paced incline. Great views.

My rating is going to be slightly inflated due to the fact that I did this in fall, but this was a beautiful hike. I also really like that despite going on one of the busier weekends during the year (fall break) there were only a few other people on the trail. This leaves a lot of room to explore further; I would recommend going further and exploring the views from the Ridge Trail where Pine Hollow ends. Will definitely do again

OK trail, steady incline, nice and shaded, occasionally comes close to a small stream. We went on a Monday morning and were the only ones on the trail.

Easy to hike , but yet if you like not to run in to horses and bikers every 10min then find another trail .. I liked the hike but the crowd is not appealing..!

Great mountain biking trail with not a lot of traffic!

Good well maintained trail. Saw a little traffic, but not enough to distract from the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Out hiking and searching for geocaches, used this trail to access a very special geocache with my two caching buddies Cheda and Ratwaffles. This area is very pretty and while we hunted for caches we enjoyed the views a lot.
