This trail was beautiful! A lot of up and down both directions. The mileage and elevation listed is one way. It was about 10 miles with over 1500 elevation gain. We went late May and got wet crossing the river, but later it probably would be easy to use rocks to cross.

The app doesn’t take you to the trailhead but just follow the sign that says “Trail”. The trailhead recommends bear-spray, but we didn’t see any today. Cute little wildflowers along the trail and a couple small river crossings with stones to hop on. A lot of very happy dogs on the trail.

Well marked trailhead and trail. Dog friendly, beautiful aspens and evergreens. Good for trail run or leisurely hike! Went in early May when the aspens are starting to pop with green... very lovely!

Started snowing on us, but trail was passable with the few inches of snow that was there. Views of the valley, and doesn't get too high up into the mountains. Relatively flat (for being in the foothills)

This is my favorite hike in Teton valley Idaho it’s beautiful on the Darby end to look out over the valley especially in the fall the colors are amazing. I lead a group of 50 girls ages 11-16 on this hike in all experience levels they all made it pretty good except about 4 who thought they might die.

Being from AZ really added to our appreciating the beauty of this trail, especially in July. Abundant wild flowers and beautiful trees with some nice views. Not too strenuous but there is a bit if up going in. The only negative if there is one would be no real end or destination but still a wonderful stroll.

We went in the afternoon and saw a few people on the trail. We made it to the creek crossing, went over, and went a bit further before we stopped. Our mileage was showing we had gone 2.8 miles so we decided to turn around and head back. So either our mileage was off or we didn’t know where to stop.

6/17/19: This trail is well-maintained and winds through a beautiful hillside. We ran into rain, which made it somewhat muddy. I stopped at the 2nd creek (the first has a bridge)—it was a little too high for me to want to cross. It’s not really a hard trail at all, but it’s not flat, so I guess that’s why it warrants the moderate rating. I’ll definitely do this one again.

Great run, lots of up and down. Bring bear spray (feisty little black bears sometimes hang here). Dog friendly!

Aspen trail splits off to right but not groomed. We hiked it in winter. Went up about 1.2 miles and trail became indiscernible so we stopped and went back. It may have been the end of the trail anyway. Had to park on road because road to trailhead had not been plowed. Nice because no snow machines. Very quiet & peaceful.

This was a nice little hike for our family. We wanted to hike Darby Canyon, but ran into too much snow about a half mile in. Having passed this trail on the way in, we drove back and gave this one a try. It was a nice hike for the family. There were lots of signs of animals on the trail. There were even some signs of mountain bikers. We past a single hiker another group of 4. Other than that it was pretty quiet. I may come back to bike this trail without the kids.
