It wasn’t difficult! Carried our 1 year old in a carrier and it we made it just fine. Short and fun hike! Really pretty.

Beautiful view, just thought there would be a spring, but nope!

1st half is paved. The loop is not and is a little more difficult. We took a wagon and a stroller and made it ok.

Super pretty view once you get to the top. Not too hard not too easy!

My wife and I love this trail, it’s our go-to when we want to go hiking on short notice. A fairly easy hike with a beautiful view and some excellent rock formations for those who like to go a bit off trail.

Very easy, to the point of being kind of boring.

Loved the hike! only complaint was the dog poop on the beginning of the trail. Definitely coming back though!

beautiful scenery and very easy. accessible walk. if you choose, there's a steep incline that reaches a cluster of boulders which is a great vantage point for viewing the river.

It was a great Sunday activity. The main trail is super easy, there are also some trails that go off which were a lot of fun.

Nice short hike up the hill. I’d do it again, as just a fun date.

This is a great little nature hike. We take all our visitors who like to see our area. A good hike for all ages.

Nice winter hike

Good for a quick dose of nature

A pretty easy trail. Something you can take your time with and enjoy the view.

Great trail for kids. Well maintained. Nice views. Today the leaf color was at its peak: orange and gold galore!

This is a great little hike. It is quite short, but nothing is left short when it comes to the experience. This is a great hike to go, especially in Late September and October to see the colors change for Autumn.
For someone who is just starting out in hiking, it is doable but it can be tough with the inclines it provides. It is possible to hike with kids as well.

Well marked and completely clear. Beautiful view of snake river. A great fall hike.

Very short, easy hike. Limited shade. Steep in some places but very manageable.

Nice easy trail, beautiful views.

First 2.5 miles are easy switchbacks through sage brush. The trail then joins up with an ATV trail, and gets a little steeper and rockier.

A quick uphill walk or ride to the high point of Jefferson county. Views at the top are OK.

If you're looking for a quick hike with some younger kids, this trail is OK. The first third of a mile up to the creek is handicap accessible (which means it is no problem even for the little kids). The loop portion is a little steep in places, but nothing too drastic.

This trail is heavily used, particularly during summer weekends. Parking can at times be tricky.

Great little hike. Made it all the way up to the top where there are some rocks you can sit on and have an even better view.

Nice hike through Kelly Canyon Ski area. The trail follows a very dusty road up and around the ski area. Go early to avoid the ATV and dirt bikers that were making their way to the trail by late morning.

Fun little hike into the hills. Great to do with kids and the creek is nice to soak your feet in the warm water. Nice vantage points of the South Fork, a beautiful riparian cottonwood forest

Not much shade. Can get a little warm I. The afternoon.

Watch for snakes. Friends of mine scared a good sized rattlesnake off the trail right at the bottom
