Trail is easy to follow, and steady up all the way. A bit of scrambling on the gravel above the tree line. It was hazy when we went, but there are some good vistas along the way. Felt longer on the way down, and the brush was encroaching on the trail some. The trees and fauna are not what you'd expect to find near Tooele; felt more like a Wasatch canyon!

BEAUTIFUL! Remember to keep in mind you will be going up 3600 feet in just under 4 miles and be prepared for that--also, the elevation might get to you--make sure to keep breathing as much as possible without hyperventilating (that helps me). Overall stunning hike complete with forest at the beginning, meadows in the middle, and mountain-top views in the end!

9.2.2017 | 30lb backpack | Recommend: Sunscreen, Long Pants, Trekking Poles

This is a tough, exposed hike (definitely made harder by my heavy pack). You cross a river at the beginning but the majority of the hike is dry so plan ahead! My GSD and I drank all 6L packed.

After you cross the river the trail will fork. Left leads to Desert Peak, right leads to South Willow Lake.

The trail varies from forested to meadow to exposed rocky desert which kept it interesting and I suggest long pants for the overgrowth. Unfortunately, the air was smoggy/smokey so the views overlooking Salt Lake Valley on the way up and even the 360 views from the summit weren't as grand as they could've been. We passed a few people and a family with 4 young girls who all made it to the peak which I found very impressive considering the steepness and midday heat.

Once you reach the ridge, there are a few trails you can follow which entices me to come back and explore. I was bummed that we couldn't figure out where the loop was so we went down the same way. Trekking poles on the way down were really nice as some spots are steep and slippery but you'd survive without them.

All in all, this is a beautiful desert hike that I look forward to doing again in clear air!

This is a great hike; took us about 6 hours to do the full loop - including a bit of time at the summit. The steepest part is up to the saddle, beware of some lose gravel along the way as well. Highly recommend this challenging hike, although it should be rated as Hard rather than Moderate.

This hike is beautiful! I am an avid hiker and would rate this hike as hard more than moderate (for some reason the peak route on All Trails is marked hard but the loop is moderate even though to do the loop you summit the peak?). There is some loose gravel near the saddle and further on the way up to the summit so shoes with a fair amount of tread are helpful, also hiking poles were a great treat on the way down but aren't an absolute necessity.

One of Tooele's gems, a must do in the Tooele Valley. Moderate hike that's lightly trafficked. My GPS measured 7.5 miles, took us 3 hours round trip, with 2100 ft elevation gain. Dog friendly with several streams along the way. The second half is quite exposed to the sun, but gives a great view of the valley. I like this one

Great hike- definitely wear long pants because it's overgrown for a majority of it.

Rode this trail back in May 2017, loved it but got stopped by a snow drift about half way. Does anyone know if it is clear yet?
