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.

super fun & beautiful scenery !!

Great trail for hikers outside of summer. Too much tall grass too close during the summer for a snake-cautious hiker like me.

not bad for a moderate Trail better to do it in the morning when it's not so hot

Really pretty views from this hike. Great shade along most of the trail. Some wildflowers and so easy to get to. Lots of people on bikes, everyone had great trail etiquette. Would be great for trail running as well!

I might be wrong but didn’t there used to be the draper glow caves on this trail?

There's a lot of trails at the start so pay attention to the map. It's downhill at the start and uphill coming out. Sandy terrain so it wasn't overly muddy on our rainy day hike. I felt like I was hiking in somebody's back yard at one point, kind of weird.

Fun quick hike with my girls. The falls aren't much to see, mostly covered by plants. For a while we thought we missed it. There were signs all over to watch out for poison ivy...

Nice and easy. Felt more like a nature walk with a few high steps here and there, but nothing serious unless you're looking for it. I would definitely bring family and kids along. The trails are clearly marked as well, so there shouldn't be any confusion. We went on a Wednesday and the overcast was perfect. Even on a hot day, most of the trails are shaded.

I’m an out of shape lady, working on my fitness. 280lbs at the moment. (TMI, but it’s helpful to know). I thought I could handle this hike and I did. I did it. However, it took my longer than the average Joe. People flew past me going up. And the trail was sometimes narrow, so I politely moved out of the way as needed. It was also sandy/rocky but I didn’t mind. There were plenty of places to stop, catch a breather and enjoy the view. (Note no places to sit, but nice viewing points). It’s truly beautiful, with my weak little body, I hadn’t been on a hike yet that had allowed me to climb that high up to view such scenery. At times, I’d get discouraged, looking up, seeing people so high above me up the path— but I got through it. I should’ve recorded the time, I think it took me 20-30 minutes? Anyways, the climb was well worth it—we took the trail at the top to go to the Suspension Bridge. (There’s another hike link on here for that one) I’d do it again. Note: this trail also leads to other multiple hikes to top.

my first time hiking here it easy trail to walk and enjoy.

Very fun hike and easy with my toddler on my back. There are a lot of mountain bikers so watch out! And there are quite a lot of snakes on this trail, non-venomous and venomous (rattlesnakes). I’ve been 3 times in the past week and have seen at least 3 snakes on each visit. Beautiful Mother’s Day today with my little boy and husband seeing all the wildflowers.

I’m not sure what trail we were on, my boyfriend and I just parked by Hidden Valley Park. On the stroll with our dogs we passed a trail that said dogs allowed so we followed it. According to a stranger on my Instagram post we were on Bonneville Shoreline Trail and said dogs aren’t allowed. However, I can assure you, while there were a few signs saying no dogs allowed on specific trails, we did find one that said they were allowed on another one. It was a beautiful hike, I’d say pretty easy. Lots of kids, runners, bikers and plenty of dogs. I think it just depends on the trail you go on, so be sure to keep walking further until you find one that allows dogs :)

Hiked 4/26/2018. Saw two rattle snakes. It was a easy hike. I would go the same way I came in instead of hiking up then back down the driving path. But that way did offer great views just no shade.

Lots of bikers, small waterfall - still a nice little hike out with the fam.

Amazing trail for running on. The first part up Clark’s trail is a bit difficult but not too strenuous. There is a lot of shade covering most of the trail so it wasn’t too hot, even in the afternoon. It only took about an hour for me to finish the entire loop, so it isn’t too long.

Great hike BUT it was more like 5-6 miles start to finish. I did it with twin three year old because it said 2.5 miles but it was at least 2.5 one way.

Plan my day around going on this hike drive 40 miles it saids digs on leash when you get there it saids NODOGS. Very disappointing

BEAUTIFUL day for this hike! Trail was dry and although there were quite a few people out, we were able to find a parking spot in the tiny parking lot at the Coyote Hollow trail head. The major thing we immediately noticed is that NOWHERE at the tiny parking spot did anything say Ghost Falls as a marker to let us know we were in the right spot. Luckily a biker had just finished his trail ride and let us know we were in fact at the right spot. So, we took the Coyote Hollow trail and headed out... It wasn't until 0.8 mile up that we finally came across a trail marker that said Ghost Falls (see map recording). That was when we finally knew we were actually on the correct trail. From there it was 0.3 mile to the falls. Total hike up for us was 1.1 mile. The waterfall was flowing very well and we're looking forward to going back up again when all the leaves are on the trees to make it an even prettier experience! Wonderful day! (I hope this description helps other newbies to the trail find the trail head a bit easier).

Pretty easy going trail. I love coming to this trail via the BST, starting at Hidden Valley Park in Sandy. It makes for a good, long walk in. During the warmer months, it can be very busy with mountain biking traffic to watch out for.

For the hour I was hiking there, I didn’t see any other hikers. Plenty of mountain bikers. Careful to stay on the hiking trail, especially after the waterfall during the loop. I ended up in the bikers rush path and it’s very winding and muddy on that part. The views were gorgeous, ranging from rolling green hills, to desert rock and plants, to inside a forest of tall shrubs coming from off the waterfall and creek! So much variety in views and vegetation. I saw a section of poison ivy and poison oak just off trail at the waterfall area, but nothing on trail. This is the nicest kept trail I’ve seen, it’s so beautiful and definitely worth a morning hike! Not too long, and it had a steep portion, but overall pretty easy. Gets the blood flowing.

Easy short hike with lots of deer and bikers. The view of the valley from the picnic area was beautiful! There are a bunch of different trails throughout the canyon. Ghost Falls is a small stream that waterfalls down the side of a hill and we walked past it thinking the falls were further down the trail.
