Spike Hiked up on New Year's day. snowshoes are not necessary. packed in Euro sleds to come down. this was a riot. sometimes the trail was too narrow, rocky or steep for the sleds, so we would pick them up and walk a bit. super fun day!

One of the best snowshoe hikes in Provo Canyon. There was a ton of snow today. I wore my spikes, but wished I had snowshoes. I usually do this as a loop, turning left at the Big Springs sign, heading through a couple of meadows. I often see turkey up here.

short and easy, but so much to see!

Very, very beautiful hike. Flew in for the day just to do it in the snow for the first time and had a blast. Definitely challenging, but it's overall not super long and totally doable, as an experienced hiker at least. Came prepared with microspikes and hiking poles, left hiking poles towards the very top once it became slightly more scramble-like. Picked them up on the way down and called it a day at dusk! I will say it got very cold, very quickly once the sun went down so come prepared.

The trail was snow packed and beautiful! It was easily doable without spikes or snowshoes! The gate was closed 1.5 miles out from the trailhead, but was a beautiful hike! Prepare yourself to have a towel and dry clothes when you get out of the springs!

13/Jan. Pretty views. Easy to see the trail. However, only 3/4 of the way has a trail, the rest will require some extra work. The snow is packed, even in hard to go places and the trail is wide enough to hike. Did not have snow pads, only winter boots and poles. Was sunny and no wind. Very silent. Many wild life trails. Enjoying hike!

Such a mellow hike through a lot of pretty canyons and dry river beds. The beginning wasn’t quite as scenic, but after about the first mile, it gets much more enjoyable. About 4 miles round trip - great family hike.

Nice, relatively short hike close to town that gets you high enough for some good views of the Wasatch to the east and the Salt Lake Valley to the West. Trail conditions today where excellent. Not much ice, mostly packed snow and mud/dirt. Much of the climb is south-facing, so relatively free of snow or ice except for the start and the summit. Deep snow near the top, but the trail was well-packed. Didn't need yak tracks or snow shoes at all. I saw only 2 other people with their dog the whole hike. My two pups and I had the summit to ourselves. We weren't able to get completely above the inversion, but we got close. Blue skies to the east, haze to the west. Great hike for this time of year because the steady climb and constant sunshine (no shade along the trail and mostly south facing) kept us warm.

My friend and I hit this trail yesterday. We walked 2.5 miles out all the way to the grapevine trail and then headed back not seeing anything. The tracks are right at the beginning, at the bottom of the first hill not far from the trailhead. We completely missed them going in. We laughed so hard. Despite the little sign talking about the tracks, we didn’t realize that was where they were located. Lots of sand covered the tracks. In fact the track in the first picture (the raised one with the interesting patterns in the rock) was completely covered. We had a blast either way. The entire trail is beautiful. Also the dirt road from the neighborhood to the trailhead was easy to drive in my 2WD truck.

This was a fun hike and I would definitely do it again—lots of great look outs and we caught the sunset at the point which was unforgettable. The trail was pretty easy to follow and offered plenty of great views.

on Dino Cliffs Trail

Beautiful hike! I was hoping to see more dinosaur tracks along the hike other than those that are at the bottom of the first hill. I never did see the tracks shown in the first picture for this trail. Not sure where that track is located. The scenery is gorgeous and worth hiking the full trail out and back.

Follow-up to my post. It turns out the raised dinosaur track currently shown as the first picture for this hike is not actually a dinosaur track that is on this hike. It can be found a couple of miles from this hike at the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm. https://www.utahdinosaurs.com/

I gave this four stars because I am sure this is a remarkable trail… but my personal experience, it should’ve been a zero. But it’s not a trail fault, I picked the worst day to do this trail. When I got to the peak, there was zero visibility to the city below. Also, there was a lot of ice on the ground and it was very difficult to walk up. I knew I should’ve waited for a clear day, but I only had a couple of hours free in order to make this hike happen at all. I will see if I can get time to do this trail one more time, but I doubt it. Anyway, I’m sure this trail is beautiful in the summertime.

Easy trail with a very slight incline on the way out. Beautiful sandstone with basalt ridgeline. Trail is mostly well worn, but there are quite a few sections with 1 to 2 foot rocks that you'll need to navigate if you're trail running. Georgous views. Map takes you right to the trailhead where there is a small paved parking lot.

Fun trail. Kid friendly.

Trail turned awesome after about 1 mile in (I hiked it). Great views and good workout. The trail is not hard, more like moderate in certain parts, where it gets technical. There were a couple of times where you had to figure out where the trail continues. Maybe next time I will bike it.

Went in January so the trail was covered in snow. I took my 3 year old. It was perfect length for him and he loved the wood bridges. I wasn't a fan of listening to traffic driving by but my little boy had a blast.

Easy but fairly boring trek to reach the petroglyphs. Once there the hike becomes worth it. Scramble amongst the rocks to find the many petroglyphs. Most of the folks we encountered were seniors, so this is doable. Keep an eye on your kids while scrambling as there are serious drop offs. We will do this one again when we have guests.

This trail is definitely worth stopping for and would be a full five stars if the trail was better defined. The trail is hard to find but it’s pretty easy to make your own trail up to the dinosaur tracks and the petroglyphs. Both were amazing, although the descriptions for both are at the parking lot - be sure to read these! Very interesting.

Talk about a gorgeous hike with massive rock cliffs surrounding every part of the trail. This hike is a must do! The whole trail is the destination, each portion is beautiful with new photo ops. The trail begins on the right of the parking lot if you’re looking toward the Towers, and there are bathrooms at the trail head. Blew my expectations out of the water!

Nice area for some easy hiking amid beautiful scenery. It feels remote in places even though the highway is just over the hill and in spite of being able to hear traffic. You can connect this trail with Beck Hill, Gila, Paradise Rim and Turtle Wall trails to provide a variety of options for loop hikes and varying distance. We spent 3 hours in here wandering around and taking photographs. Nothing strenuous about these trails; suitable for anyone who can walk on sandy or rocky paths.

Very nice drive in fall, it is absolutely worth it to take the road to Cascade Springs and take a walk there. Along the way there are not that many spots to stop the car and take photos :-).

The views along this trail are so pretty! It’s a bonus that you can bring your fur balls, too! I’ll be back in warmer weather to enjoy it a bit longer.
