I didn't love the first bit of the hike, but the trail gets gorgeous once you're past the Y! Fewer people, and way more wildlife.

Tough hike but once you get passed the Y, the view is absolutely spectacular and worth all the effort.

It was a great, hard little hike with a gorgeous view at sunset!

Just don't hike it during Spring. I hated every single time of it.

Going to the “Y” isn’t that great, but once you go past it, the trail is a lot prettier. The view from the top at sunset was perfect!

It can be a bit grueling, but worth it!

The trail is much prettier after you turn east into the canyon.

Fun trail and great views despite the very useful post by Brandee Aragon. "BYU sucks" so you don't like the trail?
