Seems to get steeper each time but worth it. Still some snow on the last steep climb.

The trail itself was amazing but it rained last night and was pure slush. Basically ski’d the way down

The trail was in good shape. Easy to follow until about mile 3 where it splits. Most foot traffic goes to the right but the actual trail is to the left. You’ll know you went the right way when you cross a small stream. I used Snowtrax and they were sufficient for traction.

HikingGreat!

This trail is absolutely stunning right now! Get up there before the leafs fall off. Steep incline going up but not too bad. Coming down for me was more difficult. I can’t believe I haven’t hiked this trail sooner! It’s a hidden gem!

It was a beautiful hike this time of year. When I arrived at the saddle, I decided to climb up to the peak on the north side. Lone Peak is on the right side. The views from there we amazing. I would recommend that people go on this trail.

HikingGreat!

Great trail for cardio and awesome scenery in the fall. Secret water fall? I found a water fall that was not heavily trafficked. Not sure how many people know of it. The trees are beautiful in the fall but spring would be the best time for the waterfall.

It was shaded most of the way up. Let’s chat on the way down but still a significant amount of shade. Steep incline the entire way up. Honestly fucking fantastic hike. Kill me.

This was a big effort but amazing scenery! I noticed at two hours after the start at Dimple Dell Park I ascended 2,000 ft, and then a total of around 4,500 ft to the ridge which opens up to an incredible view of upper Bells Canyon with Lone Peak off to the right. Dropping down into Bells is steep and sketchy. I had to use my hands and poles for stability coming down the steep ridge. After a boulder field and scramble I found the reservoir due east which wasn’t visible from the Sawmill ridge. The trail down from the reservoir asy to follow. Using the GPS locator on the the app map was super helpful to find the trail Bells trail below the Sawmill ridge. I highly recommend trekking poles and plenty of water and a few snacks. Z

Epic trail - NOT for beginners. Footing is tricky. Lots of small rocks, gravel and dirt. Trail vegetation is a bit overgrown on the upper half. Bring plenty of water and wear hiking shoes. Enjoy the views!

It is a really steep trail so come prepared with a lot of water and go when it is cooled down. My friend and I had to turn around halfway because it took longer than expected. Other than that it is a beautiful trail and I wish I was able to make it all the way up! If you are an experienced hiker I highly recommend it!
