Even my fat ass could do it, though my recording drained the hell out of my battery, made it to the end of the trail. Great view up there.

I wouldn't rate this trail as easy. It was for me but I hike all the time. If you don't, it'll be moderate. The map that is on this app shows the trail going past where the 4 wheeler trail ends, I don't recommend going past it tho. After you get past where that trail ends it's just bushwalking through the trees and their "trail" ends at a cow watering trough. Right where the 4 wheeler trail ends it loops up to the right, that's the best view looking back down the canyon. I was generous rating this a 4. It's close to my house and I'll probably hike and mountain bike this trail more just because it's close to home. I wouldn't recommend driving out here to hike it if you're not from this area. There's better hikes to do out here if you're driving out here to hike.

This was a great hike, however it is a little more moderate than easy.

Really nice hike. The only reason it gets 4 stars is Deseret Peak. They are not on the same level. Beautiful views of Stansbury Island, The Great Salt Lake, and Grantsville. I'm an inexperienced hiker from Florida and would consider this more toward the moderate hike due to the constant uphill hike. Worth every minute spent there though.
