The trail itself is fairly droll with not much to look at. There's a lot of close trees, shrubs, and bushes close to the path, which is lower than most of the landscape for much of the trek. So there's not much of a view until the very end where the trail dumps out out at the northern most end of Snow Canyon State Park. That turnaround point offers arguably the best view of the park you could possibly ask for. For all you photographers out there, the trail is easily marked and followed, so if you're willing to hike in the dark then the shots you'll get at sunrise will be a just reward.

View is pretty awesome. The hike to the view is pretty boring though. Really easy hike because it is flat. Bring water!

Beautiful hike with an ending that takes your breath away! Be prepared for snow and mud this time of year (February). My wife and I were taken back by the unspoiled nature, the wildlife, and the spectacular view at the end of this hike. We will absolutely come back and do this one again.

Boring hike on the way up, view at the end makes it worth it. If hiking in the winter be sure to bring a good jacket!

Great hike for younger children. Took my 12 year old daughter with me and she didn't stop once. The overlook is breathtaking at the end! We'd go again!
