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 :)

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.

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.

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

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!

Beautiful hike!!

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.
