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

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!

Super busy on weekends would never mountain bike on a Saturday morning or evening nor Sunday, but any other day is a blast!

The real difficulty for me was the slippery mud. I wore shorts and didn’t find the trail as scratchy as others have noted, but there is a lot of foliage and growth along the way. Saw plenty of deer and turkeys. There are fantastic views of North Salt Lake and Mueller Park. There is also far less traffic. I hit the parking lot at almost 22:00, and it was still full of cars. Didn’t see another person on Kenny Creek.

Beautiful hike!!

The road further up the canyon is closed off for construction. Not worth the drive if you’re looking to off-road or go up to the peak.

I ran this trail in the rain, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The trail is moderately steep in areas, but it’s not too steep. It’s wonderful. If you’re considering this trail, definitely do it! :)

The heavy crowds don't distract from this beautiful trail. It start steep, shaded by big pines, followed by scrub oak. There are several bridged stream crossings and much of the trail is shaded. I nearly always see wildlife from deer to snakes and even the occasional moose. The trail is multi-use so expect to share the trail! Hikers, bikers, horses and motorcycles are all allowed. To get away from the crowds continue past the big rock to Rudy's Flat. There is room for camping and few venture this far. I usually mountain bike the trail but often hike with the kids, camp at Ruby's and snowshoe in the winter.

Awesome trail close to town. Remember folks, this is a multi-use trail which means it allows dirtbikes all the way to Mueller and back. Hikers please be courteous and let riders pass. Riders keep the speeds down! There are a couple creek crossings which utilize raised bridges...these are treacherous when wet...please let the trails dry before use!

Hiked the Kenny Creek Trail past the cabin to Willy Hollow. Lost the trail after it crossed the small stream at a camp with an old table. We just followed the Willy Hollow stream down to Mill Creek. Both Kenny Creek and Mill Creek are very overgrown.

There are two trails here apparently . One that goes above the parking lot and one that goes below into the canyon. We did the latter. Great family friendly trail. You will cross a couple creeks and rivers but there are bridges over the creeks and the river is currently still calm enough to walk through. Beautiful trees everywhere and lots of shade . There are a couple steep hills.

Very difficult and seldom used hike. Starting point is at the far South-East end of Mueller Park so you will have a bit of a walk to get to the trail depending on where you park. I started recording when the pavement ended. First 0.4 mile is a dirt road, then the trail started. Until you hit the campsite I marked the trail wasn't overly difficult to follow. Every time I started to wonder if I was still on the trail I was able to find a plastic tie trail marker.
You have to cross the creek 13 times, in addition to crossing and using the tributaries (mud) as a trail often. There is also a section that is in and out of the creek and may get dangerous depending on the season. I was able to slowly pick my way through this section without getting too wet, but you should assume you will get wet on this hike.
The trail was pretty overgrown at times but once you pass the campsite it was closer to bushwhacking. Even with pants my shins are bruised from pushing through. I eventually turned back once I hit a large snow field that was deeper than I cared to work through and I had been having trouble locating the ties as well. The trail should continue about 1.5 more miles. I think I had gotten further but noticed my GPS stopped advancing at 2.75 miles.
I would recommend turning back at the campsite for about 5 miles RT.

I love hiking the Cave Peak trail up by Bountiful Utah, and making my way up to Elephant Rock where you'll find an amazing view of the scenery, trails, hill sides, and mountains you just hiked! Its a shorter hike only about 10 miles all together but along the way you'll meet amazing people who share the same flare of traveling that so many of us do. The scenery along the was is amazing, filled with lots of places to take pictures, and videos. One of my favorite places along the way is this clearing at a bend in the trail where the trees cover the sky almost completely but leave enough space for this beautiful lighting from the sun to come through, the ground is littered with small bushes, leaves, and these moss covered logs stacked up against each other to make a shape resembling tepees, when you come to this clearing its like you've entered another realm and really goes to show you can find beauty everywhere. This trail isn't widely known about, accept to the locals who live in Bountiful Utah, but it is my favorite trail because not only is it a good hike but short enough to bring along the family, but because every time I go i bring back a new experience, one of a magical nature!

Decent trail: A bit steep for some, and overgrown to the point of requiring pants after the first mile. The cabin at which most people end this hike is 2.4 miles in, making it 4.8 RT. The currently shown map listed at 9.5 RT is pretty inaccurate and I couldn't find a trail going west from the cabin. I followed the marked (plastic ties on trees) trail south-west for about 1 mile until I lost it along one of the streams feeding Mill Creek, south of Kenny.

Amazing trail.

Had a blast !! Great trail! Sunny day!
