Amazing trail!! Some of the inclines were a bit difficult, but otherwise beautiful! I can’t wait to hike it in the spring when the water is flowing!

Great trail to see the fall foliage. Nice shallow incline all the way up, for the most part. Once you get towards the top it gets a bit steeper. Lots of trail forks, we didn’t see the waterfall; we might have taken a wrong turn.

Fun easy little hike! We got off the trail near the end and went left to the lookout. The lookout is great and is connected to the hidden valley trail. The trail was great for our dog (plenty of water). The trail less congested and we had it to ourselves going up.

Worth doing once. Steady uphill the whole way. Mostly shady and barely any other people at all.

Trail was fairly busy this morning. No water at the beginning and very little water near the end portion of the trail. Most of the trail was shaded. Going in the trail is almost a constant incline, definitely a more difficult hike!

Hike was a decent challenge, pretty steep at some points. Did not see a waterfall at the end. Plenty of cover throughout the hike.

I was expecting a waterfall at the end but the only thing I saw were some small creek tributaries running down the side of the mountain early on. I followed the map but the trail “end” was in the middle of an overgrown forest. Was still a nice trail but very anticlimactic.

really pretty trail. very steep for most of the way. nice little stream to walk by. not sure what was supposed to be at the end of the trail though. it seemed to kind of just end. so I just kept going and ended up getting to a lookout point that was pretty awesome. took me about a mile farther than planned but at that point I wasn't going to be satisfied with where this apparently ended otherwise.

I rated this a 3 star only because it was a little hard to tell if we were on the right trail because we had to hike a while before we actually saw a sign and there are intersecting trails- which in the end we ended up following because the actual Taylor Canyon trail was a little strenuous for me. We went about 1/2 mile up and then came down the south Taylor Canyon trail, along a bit of the Bonneville Shoreline and then the “Pond” trail (which isn’t even on All Trails) and then back to our car on 27th. It had a good combination of shade and sun and some pretty wildflowers. The little “pond” was pretty and a good resting spot and we did have some good views of Ogden, too.

Great small hike. One section at the top especially steep when you climb above the river for the view. Rocky, but still fun. Signs clearly mark where the turnoff up Taylor Canyon from Malan’s Peak.

Hiked up Taylor canton to the east chute and up to Mt. Ogden. Excellent hike but steep. There is a horrible bush whacking section at the base of the chute that was relentless. Hiked down porcupine run on the snowbasin side and used a trash bag to slide down the steeper parts. Used spikes and poles and gators. Very fun hike.

HikingOff trailRocky

Today is Sunday April 19, 2020. I did this trail this morning. It was a nice trail. At some point I lost the trail or it was hard to tell if it was the trail or not. This was further up the trail. It was quiet on the way up with no one coming down but there were several groups going up when I was going down. Still not hard to get far enough off the trail to keep my distance. There wasn’t really snow on the trail for the most part. Just a timely patch here and there. Nothing to worry about.
