I've been sticking to Easy & Moderate Trails since moving to Utah recently, so this was my first 'difficult' rated trail in the area. Took about 4.5 hours, was pretty challenging as it's uphill the entire route & as another person mentioned coming back down on rocky terrain can be tough on your legs. But, it's totally worth it! It's a beautiful view from the peak, and in the fall the leaves in the canyon were stunning. Make sure you keep left at the fork after the 5th bridge (they are numbered).

Such a beautiful hike! A bit steep at times, but totally worth it. The view of the valley and the mountains is amazing, and in the fall the leaves are gorgeous. It took us about five hours but we stopped to take A LOT of pictures :)

Amazing view. Good incline but not terrible. Thoroughly loved this hike. Would recommend, it is difficult but with plenty of water and grit I think anyone could hike this.
