Caught this trail yesterday. No problem with mud. packed down and dry. (Today!) Very beautiful trail with meadows of predominantly purple flowers. A bit rocky on top, but the view was worth it. Nice!

Nice trail right next to the creek, only problem with this one is that it is still very muddy.

The trail is still really muddy and slick in some places. Most of the trail has been ripped up by four wheelers so there’s a lot of ditches that are filled with water. There are some pretty flowers and you can hear the water running pretty much the whole way up.

First of all, thank you to everyone who stayed home today because of the weather. I had the trails all to myself and it was glorious. The weather was perfect; a beautiful rolling fog, no rain. I actually started on the Water Fork Loop trail, and then took the connector over to the Rose Canyon trail. The Rose Canyon path is super muddy, but it wasn’t too bad if you wear a good pair of boots, and I’m glad I was only coming back that way, going up would’ve been no fun. The views on these trails are great, and there are lots of pretty flowers.

We only walked back about 3/4 mile. Still quite muddy with patches of snow. Trees do not have leaves yet.

Hiked this over the weekend. It was beautiful weather. The snow was a bit slushy in some areas but no crampons or snow shoes needed. Well marked and continuing past the map all the way to the top... definitely worth it!

The road up is easy. It’s a good workout going from the road up the trail to the ridge and taking the loop around to come back. Good for trail running. I would not recommend the loop trail for people with bad knees or little kids. Steep going up and coming down.

When you add the Big Rock Trail (single track), Yellow Fork Loop trail (double track) this becomes a nice loop

I loved the ridgeline portion of the loop we took. The views of the Salt Lake Valley were beautiful from a perspective I hadn't seen before. The drop down to the trailhead from the top part of the loop wasn't very interesting, and it was long and steep enough to give older knees a reason to second guess the decision to go down—but really not a problem at all.

My husband and I did this hike but rather than turning around and tracking back we went off the map and did a loop. We seen cows, deer and lizards! Wild flowers in the beginning of the hike! There was surprising ALLOT of cactus.

Great hike for kids with minimal elevation gain and the creek offers a few places to stop and play in the water. You will share the trail with horses and mtn bikes.
