SnowshoeingGreat!

1st time snowshoeing there and thought it was beautiful. The contrast of the cliffs with the snow really pretty. I had forgotten to charge my phone so it died not to far in, which was a bummer. I could have taken more pictures. Only downfall like many other trails is people not picking up after their dogs.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful fall colors. Definitely recommend doing the loop clockwise, because the incline is a bit gentler for going up. Some bikers, but it wasn't crazy busy.

It was an easy walk. We didn’t do the entire thing because it was long. Be careful because a lot of mountain bikers like to go on this trail and don’t even say they’re behind you! They just go zipping up and down!

I absolutely love this trail, my favorite so far. The views of the mountain are gorgeous. There’s a good balance between shade and open areas so it’s not too rough with the heat plus the river goes alongside the trail the whole way which gives it some coolness. Next time I plan on doing the longer loop around trail.

Took my 3.5 and 7 year old. The trial is not hard just exposed in the sun for most of it. The canyon offers some relief with water offshoots and a steady breeze. Fun for families.

Beautifull trail. I can't wait for the area to dry out somewhat. The current mud situation makes it very difficult to tack on more mileage further up past the meadow.

This trail has beautiful scenery, is extremely green, and there are a lot of wildflowers right now. There are a lot of sections that have multiple paths though, so I would make sure to have All Trails or some map to keep track on the trail.

This is a great trail for running or hiking! We were only able to complete the small loop, as the portion beyond the bathrooms was closed until June 1st for dry out. We first hiked it clockwise and we liked it SO much that we went back out for another loop— but this time counter clockwise! Great views of Snow Basin, wildflowers everywhere, and PRO TIP: be sure to bring giggling friends along for this adventure!! Highly recommend this trail and I can’t wait to go back and run it!!

HikingClosed

Great trail - at least the part that wasn’t closed. We parked at the pull off at the base of pine view dam, and hiked up the loop clockwise. When we got to the restrooms and upper parking lot, the trail past the road was barred with a sign that said it was closed until June 1st to avoid damage while the spring runoff has the trail saturated. It seems like this is a yearly closure, so plan for it if you are hoping to go in the spring!

microspikes are a good option. When the sun starts to warm the snow gets a little mushy but it was okay. A few Mt Bikers. Lots of snow and pretty views.
