I’ve hiked this trail many times (Also called the Powerhouse trail or Talbert trail). This trail is somewhere around 15 miles long and I believe it ends at Verdi lake. Personally I’ve done 6.5 miles on this trail and while there are a few areas after the 4.5 mile mark that aren’t well maintained, it is a great trail still with awesome views.

This trail is great for beginners because it has a good mix of steep and flat parts. We went almost 3 miles today and I think the trail goes a lot further. We are going back next weekend to go even further.

This was a really nice hike. The elevation climb wasn't too bad and is done in the initial first mile. The elevation starts, according to my Garmin, at about 6352 and peaks at 7800.

The trail was well defined and could be used for biking and running. The trail is definitely NOT 3.3 miles out and back. I did just shy of 4 miles in one direction. I suspect the trail continued for at least another half mile.

It isn't the most exciting trail, but does offer some beautiful views of the Lamoille Valley and the Ruby Mountains. I could see this being an ideal late fall / early spring hike as well as parking was fairly close to the canyon's entrance.

There is no water on the trail and it was largely exposed, so be sure to bring supplies. I did see about half a dozen other people on the trail as well.

This is a great trail. We did not make it to the end, we turned back after about 3.5 hours of hiking, but there were beautiful views (Lamoille/Elko valley and as far as the eye can see), flowers and butterflies along the way! We went late June.

Easy trail with a lot of benches to chill out. My dog loves this trail, and there's also a lot of cool stuff to read.

Did this with the kids, easy and short walking trail. They have a paper with numbered descriptions of plants and rocks to match numbered stations on the walk. It shows how the glacier cut thru the canyon too. Cute beaver pond at the bottom which is fed from a spring, very clear water. Fun and easy!
