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

New to UT trails, though hitting many in UT county. Spectacular views, great
Rock formations. Took my 13 year old daughter and 6 year old son and they great!

great trail beautiful scenery got some really steep hills 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

I love this trail and really hope they don't develop it. The views are amazing (when its not smokey) and it is a fairly easy hike. There are some steepish sections depending on your fitness level. It is open and not much shade. Dogs are allowed but there are some off trails that you have to leash them.

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

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.

easy hike. the directions took us to a culdesac tho? the hike actually starts at the park next door to the lds church. we did the loop where the waterfall was supposed to be as well and i never saw anything? lol maybe i was too busy talking or theres not much left this time of year?

Totally exposed to sun but a must do for all locals because it’s easy and the views are rewarding. Plus the pyramid at the top is an added bonus

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.

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

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.

The path had beautiful views and some shady parts, but if you take a dog you can’t get to the waterfalls. So it’s kind of anti-climatic. Otherwise, great FIRST hike with my 4-month old puppy!!

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 to a developer. There is a public hearing on July 10th at 7 pm at City Hall. Search for "protect deer ridge draper" at change.org to sign the petition to save this open space.

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

I brought my dog along with me, lots of fun! She loved it and I loved it, win win!

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!

Good trail, and is great for those starting out. Dog owners should note that the BSL part is where dogs can be on a leash, all of the connections do not allow dogs. There were a few times I regretted bringing the dog because I could not venture on paths I wanted to check out.

Great dog trail and mountain bike trails connect to this trail. Easy loop for family and friends.

how and where does the trail start? I came across some houses and it's there's no trail. can anyone help? I really want to go hiking on this trail.

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