This was such a nice hike on a hot evening. The first half mile or so is on the road in the sun, but then it is shaded and the grotto is nice and cool with the waterfalls. Follow the tips and make sure you go up at the “steed creek trail” sign. I think moderate is a good rating for this hike. I loved it!

on Lagoon Trail

6 days ago

Great family walking trail that we've been using for years. Wide and paved, can be used for strollers and bikes. Added bonus, passes by a section of the Lagoon zoo. Wild berries and fruit trees along the way. A couple of bridges over a stream with no water access. Great place for a photo shoot.

We hiked this starting around 6:15pm. The trail is not clearly marked for some time. We found ourselves “stumbling” onto the trail. My GPS said that it was around 1.5 miles up, 1.6 down. We did not go to the mine. Took us around 2 hours to get to the flag (it was super hot, and we were slightly creeped out thinking we kept hearing rattlesnakes...although we never saw one) we took multiple breaks and sat at a bench 1/2 way through the hike. We spent a good amount of time up top, watching the sun set

Great well maintained trail! Pretty the entire way through!

It was a bit rough for my out of shape family but it was a great view and I loved the mine. I’m a bit scared of heights and the narrow steep trail had me a bit anxious, especially on the way down. However I didn’t have too much trouble and I’m looking forward to seeing more of Utah

Lots of cotton! Like coated everywhere, looks like spider webs, and being next to lagoon it sounded like people dying screaming! Kinda hysterical except my 2 yrs Old was scared!

Walking trail not a hike. Well shaded.

Did Triumph up, which was brutal, semi dangerous and gorgeous views, it pushed me and I loved it. Hard difficulty steep pitch, loose shale, nothing to hold on to. Definitely need hiking boots, walking sticks and maybe rescue gear and first aid for Triumph trail. It’s just a swift gain in elevation. Waterfall and creek were awesome at the top of Triumph . Did the Davis creek loop hike coming back down. Loved it. There are rocks and roots to trip on and it is really overgrown in some parts. Did it at night. Would do Davis loop again in the day going up. Wouldn’t take my 5 yr old but my 8 and 14 yr old could handle Davis creek loop.

Missed the real short loop by taking the wrong trail. Discovered the error and just had a longer hike than expected

The grotto was nice and cool on a warm morning. Very nice

Great views of the valley and the Great Salt Lake. A good trail for the entire family. If you like mines, Patsy’s is an easy walk into.

Good little trail. fun to see the lagoon animals on the back side. super easy if your looking for a quick escape

This was a super fun hike because of the old mine at the end. Before you go, Google the history of the mine, then you will have the back story as you search the tunnels. Bring a flashlight!

Great hike but it's full sun for almost the entire way, so just be prepared for that.

Mostly shaded. Nice and easy.

Perfect for my kids who are just starting out hiking.

I like to access this from 2200 West which is just east of the airport by road bike. I hate when the bugs are thick, when wearing sunscreen the bugs stick to your arms. Only a few restrooms.

Great trail for everyone, the elevation gain is not a major factor. However, the trail leading down to the waterfall was too difficult for my 6 yr old to traverse.

nice easy walk with the kids (9 & 4) and dog. flowers were in bloom & we had a lot of fun looking for the birdhouses. shaded.

I hiked this trail this morning with my 8 year old. It took us 3 hours, but we have to stop and see every bug and look at every rock. Haha. Definitely an overgrown trail and very easy to get lost on; thank goodness my sister had been there before and was able to guide us. Also, I’m glad I wore pants after reading the reviews; there’s plenty to brush your legs on. The little waterfall at the end was completely worth it. If I hike it again though, I’ll start earlier in the morning. On the good side, we only saw two snakes (:

6/2/18 Just tried Doing this hike with my hubby and baby in tow... we parked in the designated parking spot and went across the street to the gate and went around to be on the BST... after a bit went down a hill and made a slight right into a JUNGLE! this is NOT a nice trail, you could barley see where to go... while looking on the all trails app it said we were going the right way but it was pretty awful... we would have kept going but ran into some water that was not passable due to not wearing water shoes... I was glad to be wearing pants due to several thorny bushes... there is another trail head just up the road from the parking lot that we were told later had a waterfall... so maybe try that one... anyways bad luck with this one... too bad....

While this trail has a Sleepy Hollow vibe to it, there isn't really much to see. It is a good place to take a family for a walk as it is paved and relatively quiet.

Great hike. Worth it but certainly for those who feel comfortable on the edge. There are a few parts where you’re on a very thin trail over a cliff.

Super fun but very steep. The kids made it ages 3,6,7 but it was difficult. Worth the hike. Round trip- 3/12 hrs.

Nice hike for Memorial Day. Loved being up at Flag Rock to see the view and ponder what so many have sacrificed for us. Fairly easy trail, but definitely exposed. Luckily it was only in the 60s. The mine was cool and definitely required a light to explore.

The views were a 5 but the trail isn’t well maintained and is on the more difficult side of moderate. Watch out for snakes and steep slopes. Definitely an awesome trail but it’s not for people just getting started with hiking. The trail is also easy to get confused on for direction.

Beautiful morning for a hike. The views are spectacular the farther up you go. Well kept trails although a little narrow at times, especially if someone is passing by. There were a lot of families with children and they were all doing well. Patsy’s Mine was a fun little spot off the trail on our way to Flag Rock. I recommend starting early in the day as the heat of summer could make it too difficult.

In the morning around 8:30, it rained the night before, so the trail was pretty wet and my pants wound up soaked from walking through all the brush. I would recommend long pants since you’ll be walking through shrubbery almost the whole way. You’ll be on a decent incline almost the whole way, and the trail is pretty narrow and treacherous at times so I would leave the little ones at home for this one. The trail gets pretty narrow and the edge is really soft towards the top. Overall a beautiful and quick hike.

it is a beautiful trail, that I think would be great to take a photoshoot in. The trail starts by a power plant, then goes by bison and elk, you can Lagoon off and on. then the trail stops at a road. go left down the road, then the trail continues on your right. after a bit, then the trail comes to a small building for electricity, go right. after a bit again the trail ends, at the end of a drive way. go left this time, and there is a hill. at the top you see the dam. along the trail their are picnic spots, or benches. easy walk.

Very cool place to cool down on a hot day. The trail can be a bit confusing. Once again watch out for snakes.
