Incredible trail you get back in the thick of things cross the river several times and if you like to get away from things this is a great trail. A lot of up and down and steep in places but so worth it.

Great dog trail. But watch out for poison ivy.

I’ve lived in N Salt Lake on the east bench for 3 years and this is the first crack at this trail. You should probably read the reviews before you set out on this one. It’s a relatively challenging hike at times but offers a lot of stream access and not too difficult for the first mile. Apparently the end (what I believe was the common end) is right around the clear cut area which is just under 3 miles in. I pressed on for another quarter mile and at that point there were several jogs that were completely overgrown. It was kinda cool to push through thick brush and also added to the challenge. It got late in the afternoon and I turned around but will return and press on because there’s got to be more of a payoff than that clear cut area.

Great dog trail

Muy bueno para empezar senderismo

I've been hiking this trail for years and i love it.

My favorite so far! Very nice!

Steeeeeep start. Lung buster. It was extremely hot and I didn’t bring enough water, so I cut it short. Good hike for increasing cardio fitness! Didn’t see any rattlers today.

Great trail- narrow in spots- watch for mountain bikers who are coming down- most are careful but i have had some close calls in narrow bends with mnt bikers- yesterday was almost hit by one who came around a blind curve speeding down the trail- they should consider a bell

This is a great trail! It was a little overgrown in places but not bad. I would recommend it!

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.

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

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

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.

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.
