I run/hike this trail almost every week with my dogs. It's starts moderately on a dirt road it quickly narrows to a rocky trail. Middle section is super Rocky, a lot of loose rocks. Makes it hard to run. Good area to slow down and hike. Save the ankles. The top reaches a T at the pole Haven dirt road. If you take it to the left you can follow the pole Haven Road all the way to squaw Peak. Take a right and you'll head down to hobble Creek Canyon. Can finish the run on pavement out of hobble creek, back to town, returning to the trailhead to get a challenging 14 mile run.
Love this trail! I hike it often. I hiked it today (Oct 19). It's still steep and rocky as ever. It's a bit windy at the top and the leaves have all fallen. But it's still great weather and well worth it!
Great trail! It gets narrow in some spots, and it can be pretty steep. Not a beginner trail. But it's well worth it! It's incredibly green, and all around a fun hike. My dog did great, too and she is a Mini Aussie.
excellent trail. Very solitudinal. easy access to squaw peak road for more miles.
I have hiked this trail overbthe years and also enjoy how secluded it is. It is a very quiet trail with very little traffic. Moderately steep with the middle portion being rocky bit this turns back to smooth dirt trail about 1.5 miles up. Early morning start is best due to it being very open and exposed the whole way.
Beautiful trail, without the crowding of the Provo Canyon Trail.
Really smooth and nice at the top, really rocky at the middle... very rocky. Expert only or walk the middle part.
