This trail starts in the East Mountain Wilderness Park, travels along the very flat and wide Bonneville Shoreline Trail, and then takes a right (east) turn onto the Webb Canyon Trail. The Webb Canyon Trail is much more difficult and steep. There is another way to access Webb Canyon from Adam's Canyon. If you're looking for that, you will also find it on AllTrails.

Once you leave the BST this trail is STEEP. Sage and scrub oak are encroaching on the trail so pants are recommended. Up to the fork before the tin cabin the trail is easily followed and has orange ties periodically. Back on the main trail after the cabin the trail grows difficult to follow and the ties stop from what I could see but it should continue for about 1.5 more miles ending at the Great Western Trail.
