The beginning of the trail is a little drab, but once you actually get into the canyon it’s really pretty. The snow is packed and easily accessible with spikes - icy in some areas from all the sledding on the trail. A bit annoying dodging all the sledders coming down while you’re trying to climb some of the steeper parts. Nice quick hike - takes about 45-60 min up at a moderate pace, 20 min down if jogging.

Hiked this morning with poles and Yaktrax, both were helpful. I think the difficulty level is neither moderate or hard, but somewhere in between. Saw only a few people. It was beautiful and the waterfall is worth the hike. If we had more time it would have been fun to pack lunch and eat at the waterfall.

Hiked the main trail (it was well packed) in hiking shoes and Yaktrax. No problem. Used the snowshoes for exploring the the meadows. Absolutely beautiful.

Lots of snow fell this week, so we spike hiked up the trail 1.5 miles. then sledded down. ideal conditions. highly recommend!!!

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Started just as it was getting light and watch the sunrise lite up the mountains behind us. The morning light made the mountains look incredable

We went in mid December (this month) and we brought snowshoes. Turned out we didn’t really need them but I would have liked micro spikes for the way down. There was a meadow that we did snowshoe through. There were quite a few wide-tire bikes on the trail and that looked fun.

I loved this hike. I went on a backpacking trip with some of my friends up here and about 10 minutes before getting to the waterfall there’s a little fire pit and a bunch of trees where you can set up a little camp and hang up hammocks. The view is beautiful and yes it was kinda hard carrying a bunch of your gear up the trail (because it’s just straight up) but it was so worth it. There’s little ponds that you can either look at or you can swim in (only if you like freezing cold water) but either than that it’s a great trail. It takes about 1-2 hours (depending on your pace) hiking up but walking back down feels like 10 minutes.

It was a gorgeous hike. Covered in packed snow for the majority of the way, so it got a little slick in some parts. I had a toddler on my back so that definitely made it tougher in the slick parts, if I were to do it in the snow again I wouldn’t take the kid. I ended up above the falls but I think there was probably some good views I missed out on below. The way to the falls wasn’t marked so that’s why it’s only 4 stars not 5 but I’m going to try again when there isn’t snow and see if it’s better.

Great snowy hike today, Dec. 8. Did not see any moose, saw plenty of tracks. Snowshoes not necessary, but microspikes very helpful. Took a little less than 1 hour to reach 2nd meadow.

The hike up Lone Pk by the Jacob's Ladder route is fairly direct, steep, and efficient. I consider the Lower and Upper Bell's Canyon route BY FAR the most beautiful route, but also the longest, requires the greatest elevation gain, and is best done with overnight camping.

Rated appropriately for the level, took around 3.5 hours however we stopped to take a lot of photos and take in the view. Dead horse is still on the left of the trail near the wood post for the 046 trail. It did not smell and is half buried so you may miss it (my dog easily found it with his nose so watch out if you're with pups!). Trail was clear with the exception of an ice slick about 1/4 mi past the first meadow. I was able to easily navigate around this in the brush and avoid slipping. This trail shares the majority of the way to Horsetail Falls so check that out as a nice pit stop (also found on All Trails).

This is rated "HARD" but find it to be intermediate; it shares the same trail for the Dry Creek Trail which is rated Intermediate. Went Mid-November 2018 and it took about 2.5 hours with stops for pictures and taking in the views. Trail was a mix of compacted dirt and some loose rocks so wear shoes with ankle support. Trail was clear of snow and there was only one icy spot about 1/4 mile up past the trailcamp meadow. I was easily able to walk through the brush and avoid it. The dead horse is still on the left of the trail just past the post for the 046 trail (on the right). The horse did not smell and was half buried, however my pup's nose had no trouble finding it. Only docking because the signs for the falls didn't exist.

Beautiful hike with amazing views of Timp. We got some directional help at the top to circle around on the Salamander trail which was perfect.

A beautiful and intimate look at the first and second Hammongogs (Meadows).

Breathtaking views on either side. To the south there is Lone Peak and to the north Box Elder Peak.

I absolutely loved hiking through this area and seeing this side of the Lone Peak wilderness.

Highly recommended!

Be prepared for a long uphill grind! ...

:-)

The first half of the trail or so is the same as Box Elder Peak.

Start out at Granite Flat Campground and make your way up Deer Creek Trail.

Once you reach the saddle, head west and follow the ridge line up to the saddle.

There is one precarious spot where you will need to watch your footing.

We went in November and the trail was rocky for a good portion of the trail and icy in a couple of spots but mostly dry. The falls leaves were mostly fallen. There was little to no signage to point us toward Horsetail Falls but we veered right at the first two forks and then went down a path to the Lower falls. Spectacular views and wonderful to see at dusk. It took us 2.5 hrs to go up and back.

This is a beautiful trail (minus all the horse poop). The signage to the waterfall could be improved! It’s a steep climb but take your time, you will be be rewarded with nature beauty

Easy loop trail with scenic variety of forest, meadow and panoramic views of Timponogos which steal the show. Definitely layer up this time of year, but I was sweating in the sun when protected by the trees. The melting ice also makes the path very muddy and surprisingly slippery, so be careful.

This is a really tough hike in the snow. We went on Sunday 10/28 and from about mile 3 onwards it was all in snow. We'd tried on Thursday and had only got as far as the meadow as the winds were so strong we couldn't even see our own tracks and couldn't find the trail. We managed to summit on Sunday but from the saddle to the hut and back again was very windy and very sketchy. If you've never done this before (which I hadn't), it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. Once over the saddle, the drops are very very steep and, I thought, very very scary. The views, however, are spectacular and the trail was pretty easy to follow. The whole thing took us 10 hours as it was slow going in the snow, so we came out in the dark. Be prepared and stay safe!

The water fall has dried out , but it was nice and easy hike . I enjoyed it itself

Took the puppers up here today, was a mild hike, views of Timp are amazing, there is a nice mix of shade and openness. It was a quiet trail (Sunday) only came across a couple of people. Was a little muddy in spots from snow melt after the warm weather.

We hiked this over Labor day weekend. The views and wildlife we saw were totally worth the hard hike. It was amazing!

Hiked the summit in Sept when leaves were at there best. Started from Granite Flats going up Deer Creek Trail, great hike except for last mile it is straight up, no switch backs. Came down bushwhacking through cliffs to the north of the peak, fun trail finding adventure. Caught an unmarked trail that loops around a no name peak east of Box Elder summit and went south connecting to and down Box Elder Trail. Took us 6.5 hours.

This was my first time on the trail. As of yesterday, it will take breaking trail for the final two miles to get to the summit. I wasn't willing to go further than the tracks went. There was a wind slab just before "the meadow" that I wasn't willing to cross, as well as some other evidence of snow instability along the way. I wanted to write this review to let people know that this trail is probably a ski/mountaineering adventure and not a hike at this point (probably from about mile 4) until next season. In addition, I was glad I had microspikes on my shoes after the first mile. It was intermittent ice/snow and mud for a couple miles and then straight snow after that.

Hardest hike of the summer! But I had the place to myself and the views were worth it! Lots of different terrain and scenery!

love this hike ALOT.

Love this hike. It’s awesome. The water slide at the end is cool too. Not sure why it’s rated hard though. This is moderate. Don’t be intimidated. It’s pretty trafficked though for sure. One of the best endings though.
