This was a hike I was glad I didn’t take my younger kids on. They would have whined. This was fun to hike with another adult. Would be a great sunset hike. Some parts are a bit slick and there’s a steady climb the whole way up. We hiked up 1.9 miles and saw some great views of both SLC and Utah Lake before turning around (trail continued on after the 1.9 point). Took us 1:45 to complete hike (3.9 Miles total). Trail is exposed and there’s very limited shade.

Fun trail to hike, very pretty views, generally challenging as it is climbing the entire way.

Took my children who are 5, 3 & 1 along for the hike. 5 year old walked the whole way, I hauled the 3 year old my shoulders and significant other backpacked the 1 year old.

Everyone had fun, will probably do it again but split off to the other trail to add some variety.

Easy to follow this map but you can connect the to the trail just east and make a loop if you want. Satellite view shows the trail but its hardly used and looks more like seasonal runoff/washes. The eastern trail is more steep than the mapped one.

This was an OK trail. It's relatively low elevation, but rises above Corner Canyon so you can see the Salt Lake valley and Utah County. I took the trail to where it ends on the app, but the trail keeps going past that point.

It looks like it would connect with the Cherry Canyon Logging Trail further up, so you could do a loop down to the Orson Smith Trailhead area, or keep taking it up to the Outlaw Cabin or Lone Peak. However, there are more efficient ways to both.

Other options for long hikes would be taking this to Cherry Canyon, then connecting with Trail of the Eagle, and going through Little Willow Canyon (faint trail), and down Sawmill Trail (or heading up Sawmill to the Rocky Mouth Canyon Peak area that overlooks the upper Bells Canyon reservoir).

Overall, this is a nice trail that's well marked, has great views, and has some options for turning it into a longer hike. But it's not a very efficient trail if you're aiming for a specific destination.
