Even though I live in the area I never tried the Trails but lately since they closed gym I’ve been exploring parks and trails and I was surprised this one is nice I did both trails the yellow and white and they were easy to run in them. Love the idea because trails are less crowded than the main loop, and the views are amazing I really loved it.

Quite the steep hike. Didn’t love this one. The whole way was a decent incline with lots of rocks to start. 40% of it was shaded but lots of water for pups. The last bit before the meadow was overgrown. No snakes! Pretty valley view behind you close to the top! If you’re up for a challenge and have done Olympus I’d say go for it, but for a hike with views I’d choose something different or maybe aim for thaynes!

Beautiful park! Only downfall is there is no shade, so I don’t recommend it in the summer.

Super fun weekday hike to escape from the heat of the city. Muddy and slushy most of the way even in early June but the lake looks really pretty. It is one of the easiest alpine lakes with amazing views to reach.

Decent trail. I will try it again when it is less muddy. It was pretty but nothing special. Good for a work day hike/walk.

Well maintained trail! Not muddy currently but could get muddy in a few spots with heavy rain. Rolling hills good for a walk, run, or biking. It goes right by Hilltop and has lots of connecting trails. Only a few other people on the trail which was nice (I went in the evening time).

Very pretty trail!! Better than the pictures because the meadow part is really only the first and last half mile or so. We took the longer loop and crossed through more beautiful forest instead of turning back at the second to last fork in the road, extending our hike a bit. It was not too difficult at all, and by going right, we climbed up the most difficult part first and then gently wove our way down.

Great paved trail and clear of any snow. A downed tree blocking the path but we maneuvered around it walking our bikes. Pretty decent gradual climb for 5 miles then you end up in the Loveland Basin parking lot. All down hill on the way back! Fun ride with my little autistic man!

This is my local trail I do quite often. It is easy and beautiful views. It is 4 miles from my house!

Road is still closed so there’s a 2.5 mile hike to the trailhead. The trail is snow packed from the trailhead, almost continuously, to the lake. We make it pretty comfortably with spikes and trekking poles. People also did it without, but looked like they were having a hard time. Snowshoes probably would have been better in a lot of places. Gators would have been ideal. Fun hike, but the worst mix of seasons.

Definitely no ice on the rocks, but it's still quite muddy. Also - if you're doing the whole loop as its written in description - it's not going to be only 9km, With the fact that we did a little bit of shortcut through Eagle trail, it came to walked 16km.

Wow! This is a gem of a hike that I had never done before. It has it all! Most notably, it culminates with one of the best views in the Wasatch.

This trail was so incredible! First half is thick shady woods following a stream up at an easy slope. After the last water crossing, the trail is fairly flat following the topo line back towards the trailhead with stunning views of the valley looking towards Yellowstone. There is a steep descent near the end of the loop. The views were phenomenal and I couldn’t believe how many wildflowers were blooming in the fields. Possibly one of the best hikes I’ve ever been on. There is one stream crossing that was pretty deep; we had to take off our shoes and socks to cross.

6.2 Beautiful day on the trail! Fairly steep grade all the way up with just a few flat areas. The creek is running pretty high right now, with 3 river crossings - your shoes will definitely get wet but it's great to cool down along the trail! There is an incredible view of the Valley near the the top of the trail so be sure to look back and admire (and take a breather, as this section of trail is quite steep). Near the top, there is also quite a bit of overgrowth, so wearing long pants is helpful! Lots of bugs out and about today, but didn't see any snakes. Picked up a bit of trash on the way down - please be mindful of your surroundings, and always pack out what you pack in (including dog poo bags, orange peels, etc)! :)

Great trail, almost no snow or ice to speak of at this point, aside from a patch on the very top, but lots of wet rocks from run off. A good amount of scrambling up rocks. Park opens mid June officially, so be prepared to pay for parking if you go later in the season.

Great hike, plenty of challenges along the way, the fourth mile was super steep, rocky at the top, did not complete the scramble, beautiful views of the Great Salt Lake and antelope island.

Just a bunch of burned & chopped down trees the whole time unfortunately. Just lead to the same peak views you can see from the roads.

Very challenging to get to the lake. Lots of snow and post holes for the last couple of miles. The views at the lake are beautiful.

Great trail with amazing views at the top. Today (June 2) there was still quite a bit of snow on the trail and we were glad to have micro spikes. Could have used an ice axe the last 100 feet but managed to scramble up fine. Well worth the effort. Trail is short but good exercise in the snow. As others mentioned you’ll need a vehicle with a lot of ground clearance to get to the trailhead.
