Muy bueno para empezar senderismo

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

My favorite so far! Very nice!

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Amazing trail.

Had a blast !! Great trail! Sunny day!
