Absolutely beautiful hike. Wildflowers are in full bloom. Quite busy on a Sunday, but the crowd thins out once you pass Lake Mary and continue onto Catherine. When we reached Lake Catherine, there were 5 moose in the water! There are plenty of areas to sit and watch them from a distance.

Very busy on a Saturday but nice nonetheless. Great views and all the running water is beautiful and refreshing. I would estimate we saw 50-60 different people throughout the hike and my friend and I were the only ones wearing masks, so this may not be a good trail if you’re trying to keep your distance.

HikingOff trailOver grownRocky

Embarrassed! Bountiful has many trails but they are all in dire need of upkeep/improvement! Even the skyline road is so bad! We came from up on Sessions road and hiked DOWN Holbrook. The road at top was very rocky and snakes. Then the road just ended! No trail! No markings/ signage. We were left to bushwhack for about a mile or so. Stinging nettle along the creeks converging. Followed an animal track/trail here and there. Shoes sunk in mud. Fell several times, bumps and scrapes. So over grown and Canyon is narrow and hard to get a look around to find a trail If it existed. Finally, reached the pipeline scar and trail was still overgrown but recognizable. At about 2 miles to the parking lot I felt like we were gonna make it, but there are still some dodgy places where the footing isn’t sure. I wouldn’t take kids past 1 mile from parking lot. Seriously?! Can we have more than Elephant Rock?

Crowded, but we also went on a Sunday afternoon. It is beautiful and very easy to navigate. All ages on this trail as well as parents hauling kids in backpacks and kids hauling coolers and floats up the mountain. Lots of dogs. Sadly, some bags of poop left on trail. Lots of barking dogs around the lake. Bring a swimsuit or water shoes to enjoy the lake. Wildflowers are amazing on the way up. Saw 2 moose as well. Next time I won’t go on a busy weekend.

This trail was really pretty! For the most part it’s fairly easy (take the loop counter clockwise) and the majority of the climb is the section of trail up to the overlook - that part is definitely a lot more challenging. The overlook is amazing! Definitely worth the climb. Moderate traffic, but the bugs were awful! Even with bug spray, we couldn’t get a break from the biting flies (and it’s really strong bug spray)! Also it would seem no one picks up their dog poop on the trail. I did find a pair of glasses, with brown frames. Message me on FB if you lost a pair!

Steep climb with an amazing payoff! This hike will be tricky for little ones. We had a 13 year old with us and she did fine with a few stops. I definitely recommend this hike!

Horseback ridingRocky

I really liked this trail other than the rocks. I’ve been on rocky trails but this one was bad. It has a lot of bigger rocks that the horses had to scramble over. Steep part at the end wasn’t too bad, just bigger rocks still. Good fishing at Ryder for the kids. The hike to Mcpheters isn’t bad. Don’t follow the waterfall up from Ryder or you’ll end up above the upper lake. Head more north than west and you’ll get there. Definitely worth the hike to see it. Neat place. We were just over 9 miles to get there. Make sure your horse is in shape for this one. Plenty of feed at the lake.

Great for a quick couple hour activity. Extremely heavy traffic on weekends. Refreshing reward to have a swimmable lake at the end. Two moose just off the trail provided amazing pictures. They could have cared less about all the people and dogs near by. Very dusty with all the foot traffic. Wild flowers still in full bloom 7/12/20.

Stunningly beautiful hike! Wild flowers everywhere I ran out of time so will be back to complete the entire hike. Be sure to pay the $10. fee, cash only, exact change.

Quick little walk as a warmup for White Pine Lake trail. Be sure to pay the $10. fee as you enter the parking area. Stunning wild flowers everywhere and great picnic areas near the pond

I love this trail! If you do a lot of hiking, this one is definitely not too hard and you can bag a few peaks. We lost the trail a couple times as we ascended from Catherine’s pass up to Tuscarora, but nothing too confusing. Views are incredible. All the lakes make you feel like you’re in the Alps. Only thing I didn’t like was the huge amount of crowds coming down the Lake Mary side. We clocked in 6.3 miles although this has it set just short of 6. Next time I hope to keep going over to Patsy Marley and down to Twin Lakes.

OHV/Off Road DrivingRocky

Took 2 dual sport motorcycles on this. Didn’t make it past 200 ft. This path is NOT moderate for OHV. It is extremely difficult and has a section called ”devil’s crack” that is not for the faint of heart. We saw oil leak spots and broken parts that show others have struggled in their vehicles. If you do not have a super lightweight bike or heavily modified/lifted 4x4, stick to hiking on this trail.

Very good trail and we actually got to do a little extra to get up to the peak in the middle. We went early in the morning but there were still quite a few milers so just be aware.

Amazing trail but we went in the evening so it was mosquito central. We had to turn back after we reached the first lake because because it was a blood bath. Also lots of crowds on the initial boardwalk and very few wearing masks.

Really REALLY beautiful overlook mid trail. This was a beautiful walk all the way. Unfortunately, although we made it to the highest point of the hike we absolutely could not find the downward path indicated on this page so had to turn around and go back the way we came. Not bad but a bit frustrating.

Hiking

Beautiful views, the initial incline wasn’t too long or strenuous and the remaining path goes up and down a bit so on the return journey there are some more up hills than on other paths. We kind of just turned around and went back though when we had walked as long as we wanted. Not a clear end

Great trail. I would definitely recommend staying on the path and not venturing off the trail. I went today with a friend and we saw a really big rattlesnake!

Beautiful with stunning views all the way! If you’re planning on stopping at each of the lakes it ends up being closer to 6.5 miles FYI. No snow or mud on the trail when I hiked it July 12th. The wildflowers were not quite at full bloom but still gorgeous. Left around 11am, temps were warm until Martha but then stayed cool at the higher elevations until heading back down later in the day. If I did it again I’d start a few hours earlier. The mosquitoes were out in full force past Martha but let up during the final climb to the summit. Lots of wildlife! Saw FIVE moose, two quite close to the trail and very calm, not aggressive. You can also watch them swimming in the lake from above — so cool! A raven came and chilled with us on the summit and there were plenty of chipmunks, monarchs, birds, and ladybugs. As others have mentioned, the final climb to the summit is steep and sandy — the sand makes you work harder on the way up and you have to take extra care on the way down. Was glad I brought my trekking poles.

Quick little hike with pretty views. Took my 8 y.o. and she had no problems. Trail is exposed most of the way so during the summer starting earlier in the day would make for a more pleasant trip. Like others have mentioned, it’s popular with dirt bikers, but they are very cautious and courteous. Since this is just the route that connects with another trail (Salamander Flat) there’s no real payoff at the end.

Great hike today. A few dogs off leash but they were well behaved, didn’t jump or run at you, very friendly. Lots of dogs on leash, lots of bikers. This was my first time doing this hike. I got to the upper parking lot and snagged a great spot at about 11:00 am on a Sunday, kinda crazy. Next time I will go via Dog Lake as I ended up going via Great Western and start a couple of hours earlier. Must have gone off trail more than I thought as I finished with closer to 13 miles.
