Beautiful and lots of water. Great family hike, not too hard

Took my sister who’s from NY on this trail since it’s an easy trail. The trail was mostly ice so we were micro spikes the whole time.

The hike is actually easy, not moderate. It is mostly walking through sagebrush until you get to the lava caves and some fun rock formations to climb on.

Our group loved this hike! We did think it should be rated moderate though, because the large rocks in the first mile were difficult for a couple older people in our group. The incline is easy, but the actual pathway is often moderate. The view at the top is incredible!

Wanted to ditch the crowds today and it worked on this trail! We didn't go too far but we had our 5 yo and it was perfect for us. Lots of beautiful scenery and plenty of exploring to do and scrambling around on the slick rock. We were here in good weather in January - I imagine it gets real hot in summer but once you get down towards more of the narrow sections it's probably a lot cooler. Just lots of exploring to do here - I look forward to coming back and making it further down the gulch.

Absolutely incredible view from the top. Icy and some light snow.

This was our family's first time in this canyon, although my son had been the year before with his scout group. We went up Ding and down Dang, which I would probably recommend for the easier route.

Ding was perfect for our group of 6, age range 9-60. Great bouldering, and just a fun adventure hike. Dang was definitely more difficult, and my son said it was harder that he remembered from last year. There were quite a few boulders wedged in the narrow slot canyon with vertical drops between 10-15 feet on the other side. Luckily my husband was able to come this time and he helped us navigate over them, with only a few tears of panic from the younger ones.  I definitely wouldn't have wanted to try that on my own, but it was awesome.

Everyone had a great time after we got through the hairy spots, and I think we would absolutely do it again. If you aren't an experienced rock climber, or at least fairly brave, I would recommend going with someone who is, just in case you have to climb over they way we did.

Visited the Quarry and camped at the campground with family.

Amazing view of Ogden and the waterfall is beautiful!! Steeper than I thought it would be especially close to the top, spikes highly recommended!

Super steep but great views. Rock Sofa at the top is a must! Fun short hike. Watch out for rattle snacks

Nice side trip when at dinosaur.

Great drive. Varied landscape. Leads to many hike opportunities. Did in my many trips to Salt Lake. Each year I would new routes off of the interstate.

So glad we took the trail down from the overlook. All the elevation gain is right at the trailhead on the south end, but they have installed steps that make it very doable. On a Saturday in January we pretty much had the trail to ourselves.

My husband and I took the route counterclockwise and decided to use the primitive trail to return. I would not necessarily recommend that way in the winter as it involves walking quite a bit in the shade behind the rock walls and some scrambling on ice near the end. That said, we got some wonderful pictures and it was much quieter on that stretch of the trail. It only adds another 1/4 mile to the route.

Take the 10 minutes to walk up under these two arches even though you can see it from the road. It is stunning up close.

We started out just hiking towards the beginning because the snow was a little more packed, but saddled on the showshoes towards the middle of the trail and it was perfect. Weather was great, not too steep. Woodsy and beautiful! Brought my dog and she loved it as well.

We loved this hike. It was our first moderate hike, and it was really only bad because it was pretty icy, which made it a little more difficult than we expected, but once we got to the lake, it was amazing. 3 feet of snow that we were able to enjoy, ate a nice sandwich and watched the sun go down. was an awesome hike. definitely recommend.

Beautiful, relatively flat trail. This would be an absolute breeze in warmer weather, but if you plan on visiting in the next few weeks or anytime there is snow on the ground, there is a good chance you will be walking on some very icy patches. Nothing too treacherous as there are no dropoffs on this trail, but you could land on your butt if not careful. I would recommend actual hiking boots and even poles if you need some extra help.

We had great time on this trail. It was not too hard or too long just a nice hike. We took about two hours to do Scout Cave and Johnsons Arch.
