Not a hard hike at all !

nice, easy trail with plenty of switchbacks. most of the fall leaves are on the ground, so it was pretty bare scenery wise. Would love to do this in the summer or earlier in the fall. Had a few mountain bikers on the trail, but everyone was courteous about slowing down when they got close to us.

So fun! Some parts are steep but there’s a bunch of different paths to go on. And it’s even prettier at night.

Dry and hot, Stop at Ghost falls was pleasant

Pretty nice hike. It got just a little muddy toward the top on the steeper parts because it rained recently, but it gives great views of both valleys from the top.

The trails are well marked and the new footpaths take you off the bike path. Thank you Draper for improving the trails. We followed the new marker

Definitely easier than moderate! Really pretty hike as the leaves are changing, but dodging the bikers was kind of annoying

It’s ok. You will consistently be looking over your shoulder for bikers.

This is a nice hike. However, I just went in September of 2018. Unfortunately, due to the weather there were no "falls". In fact I ended up passing it and hiking over 4 miles. I finally realized I had passed it when I got to the top and was heading down the other side! I went back and found what I could only think it was... a pretty a stream. I assume in the spring it would be better. I wouldn't recommend it though.

The trail is 5 stars for biking. I wouldn’t do anything else on it because the trail for hikers gets confusing and bikers go in between the hiking trails and the biking only trails. Anyways, if you bike yes to this trail—hikers it’s best find another trail

Wasn’t great. Trail’s just a straight, back and forth down the mountain then ends along some other trails. No scenic views, just some dead plants. The one area with trees, they were all burned from a fire a tear or so ago. There with a lot of bikers that we needed to move for, so hiking this trail probably isn’t worth it.

I got lost on the trail 2 weeks ago, but Kelly one of their guards was kind enough to give me directions and drove me to the parking lot. She deserves a raise and you're lucky to have an employee that loves what she does.
The trail was great also.
Thanks Kelly

did this hike last weekend. never found the falls but still a very fun hike.

Good exercise, ghost falls is a trickle in summer, but hey, get outside.

Wasn't sure where the loop went, so when I came out on the road I turned around and came back the way I came up. It was pretty, and there were lots of animals in the bushes. Met a coyote on the way up and down.

Trail has been built over by a new housing development. No access, at least for now.

I had a few issues with this trail. It was decently marked, but not too well. I definitely made some wrong turns and luckily realized before I'd gotten too far. Plus, that waterfall was hardly a trickle and I ate lunch next to it thinking there's no way it's that small. It was. The other views were absolutely stunning and the trek was actually easier than I expected, since we passed several "more difficult" signs. I'll probably come up here again, but not for this trail.

Hike was nice. Took my dogs because app said they were allowed yet sign just as I was getting on Clark’s trail said no dogs allowed. Picked trail because I was hoping for some shady spots along the way. Turned around and went on Bonneville trail. We walked over bridge and my guys got to play in the water a bit. It was a nice way to cool off on a hot day. There were a lot of bikers at trailhead but I didn’t run into anyone. Probably because of the route I took.

This trail is predominately used my mountain bikers, so we had to step off the trail quite often. The falls is more of a stream with a drop off, so if you are expecting a large waterfall you will be disappointed. Some of the forks in the trail are not marked, so it is easy to get on the wrong path. I strongly suggest taking a picture of the map at the trail entrance to help guide you. The scenery and trees were very nice though.

Way too many bikes on this trail. On average, runners will have to jump off the trail, into the weeds 8–10 times - if you go on a summer morning. The route itself is great. A moderate slope up and down with enough shade to keep from overheating.

Fun riding down but as a beginning mountain biker I didn't have the strength to peddle the bike all the way back up. Had to walk the bike most of the way back up. I'll stick to trails with less climb until get stronger

Pretty fun but could’ve been better by either being harder or longer

No shade. Best hikes in early morning.

Nice, easy, short hike. Not sure why there were multiple “difficult” signs posted.......it’s a mountain-there will be an incline-nothing difficult though.

It is not kids friendly. There are a lot of wild animals. We’ve seen snakes ( small and big), baby deer, hears, squirrels. The waterfall is real ghost in July.

Was nice, but no falls. My kids were mad. We also followed the wrong sign. But I had fun. Lots of biker, but they were all nice.

this would be a great trail, but mountain bikers ruin the hike. they are all over and don't care to look out for hikers. my wife was hit twice in one hike.

Draper is trying to sell this public land, including trails and the dog park, to a developer. There is a public meeting at City Hall on July 10th at 7:00 pm. Search for "protect deer ridge draper" on change.org to sign a petition to save this open space.
