Up hill. Very pretty and friendly people.

Definitely a lot of uphill especially the first 2 miles but overall a good trail run!!

I really enjoyed this hike, and plan to do it again. The beginning is very steep, and almost kept me from continuing. I was using trekking poles for the first time, and if I didn’t have them I doubt I would have made it very far. I made it up to the top and the view was amazing, as well as the feeling of accomplishing a 3400ft climb in 3.6 miles in under 3 hrs. Made it back down in 2 hrs, and thanks to my poles I didn’t have too many problems with my I.T. band.

On the way down it was getting warm and I was keeping an eye and ear out for rattlesnakes. Those popping grasshoppers and other bugs made me jump a few times, but no snakes.

This was a beautiful trail. We had 5 kids ages 5-10 and our dog with us, they all handled it beautifully. Everyone wanted lots of water on the way up. The trail is nicely shaded the majority of the time. Cons: the amount of dog poop on this trail is ridiculous, why the heck can’t people just pick up their dog’s poop?! Pretty soon dogs won’t be allowed in such beautiful places. Not cool.

Really like this trail. Watch for rattle snakes tho

My husband and I completed this hike on July 1.

This hike was okay. Typical canyon hike- lovely views and mostly shaded. Frustrating that the trail was overgrown in some areas, especially toward the end. We're not even sure we made it to the official end of the trail... we just couldn't go any farther.

Probably would've given it 3 stars, but the stream crossings and clusters of butterflies were redeeming factors.

great hike :)

A wide road trail - Need to bring up the Jeep next time. A constant climb, enjoyed the hike with my wife.

There is copious signage at the trail head and around the parking lot that dogs are NOT allowed on this trail. Be advised before you drive up. The scenery is beautiful from the pass. We did not hike due to the NO DOGS ALLOWED posted.

This was a really good hike/walk. It was very easy and very pet friendly. The view is amazing highly recommend going during sunrise or sunset. People you meet along the way are very nice. If you want to make this hike a bit harder I say run up and down it. It was just plain amazing, loved it!

Fun and gorgeous hike! There is poison ivy along the trail, so be aware of that, but otherwise a very nice trail.

Nice view of the Bountiful Temple. Trail has very little shade. Best time to hike is the cools of the morning

One of my favorite hikes. love the water and the bridges.

No one picks up their dog’s poop here. The most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. Ruined it for me

Very fun little off roading trail. Has a quite a bit of rocks and puddles so I recommend something with some ground clearance. Very pretty view up there!

my favorite... but its very busy and lots of bikes spoil the walk

Mountain bikes this trail and loveeeed it! Pretty steady climb with a pretty view at the top.

Nice trail mostly in the shade, the tepees on the trail had been pulled down, except one little one.

Great trail, beautiful scenery.

Great hike for families with young kids. Fun to play in the creek along the way.

A great trail to run. Not too steep (up or down), not too long or short, not too rocky. Lots of shade and beautiful greenery in the spring.

Very pretty, scenic views. Trail is moderate incline to the rock. Somewhat crowded later in the day. Thoroughly enjoying the trail when 2 kids on motorcycles came up the trail. Apparently motorcycles are allowed on this trail? It terrified my dog and the engine noise echoed through the canyon. Other than that disturbing episode, the trail is good training.

A favorite for sure. Absolutely gorgeous. Begs to be run.

Good climb at the beginning, levels out at the top. Beautahful views at the top. plan for a couple hours (at least 5-6) to finish the whole trail.

What a work out,loved every minute of it beautiful scenery.

Its a good family trail with fair amounts of shade. I don't personally love sharing the trail with mountain bikers (with 3 kids 5 and under, its a total hassle to pull them all aside every 5 minutes) but we chose a much less crowded time than usual, which was very pleasant!
We typically hike Big or Little cottonwood about 75% of the time, so the dog waste everywhere was appalling to see... CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOGS PEOPLE!
The teepees were all dismantled which was a total bummer! My kids were really looking forward to them!
There were tons of wildflowers and tree blossoms and it made for gorgeous scenery!
