It is very steep when you go the tipy top of the mountain. There was a lot of snow at the end and it made it difficult for us to climb it. We did it but I would not do it again. I would rate this as hard hike in the Spring mostly if you are not from Utah like us.

Very enjoyable hike. Quite steep in places. Plenty of benches to rest along the way.

The hike to the Y is definitely the worst part of the hike, but once you get on the east side of the mountain the sights are unreal. Mountain tops as far as you can see. Would definitely recommend going all the way to the top!

Necessary hike to do while your in Provo! Pretty boring hike, just switchbacks all the way up. But it's fun to sit on top of the Y and look at all of Utah Valley.

In your face the whole way but the views of the city and lake are definitely worth it.

A few more weeks will do this trail some good. Because of the warm up and cool down, the trail is a big sheet of ice when you get further up. Stay safe and wear snow cleats on your shoes. The lower part to the Y is completely clear.

Not one of my favorite hikes, but it was a good prep hike for backpacking season!
