on Nobletts Creek Trail

Took the kids (3 &5) today. It was I think perfect for them. Steep in places but nothing they couldn’t handle. Hardly anyone on the trail, only one other family. The river follows for most of the time, which is nice for them to play in.

Two words: Bug Spray! There were also a ton of flies. But despite that, this hike was incredible! My 5 & 3 year old did so well and loved every second! We hiked on July 6, and it didn’t feel too hot since it was shaded 80% of the trial. The water is amazing and the greenery is so lush! I’ve never seen anything like it. We live 1.5 hours away from this trail and we will be going again for sure!!!

Fabulous short hike. The trail follows a beautiful stream and ends at a little waterfall. We had our dog and 11 and 9-year old kids, and they loved it. Good for all ages. Not many mosquitoes but a few flies. Overall- great hike!

I was expecting more based on the reviews I read, so I was somewhat disappointed after finishing the hike. Nice view of the water flowing over the rocks at the end but overall I wasn’t entirely impressed. Some wildflowers scattered along the trail. Most of it was shaded though which was nice. We saw a huge heard of sheep being herded down the mountain across the creek on our way out which was probably the most entertaining part.

Very fun hike and really gorgeous hike. There was only one downed tree over the trail, so it looks like some cleanup has been done compared to a couple of years ago. Started the loop going north (counter-clockwise), though I think doing the hike the opposite way would be better . About 1 1/2 in, the trail ends as it merged with the stream. We had to walk on the stream about 1/4 of a mile before re-joining the trail. It has some nice views and some signs about the different trees and vegetation in the area. Not maintained very well, but that's expected with the little hiker traffic it gets (we didn't see any other hikers in the area). Would recommend it. My 9 year old nephew was able to do this hike, but I would still rank this as a moderate hike and not an easy hike.

Probably my favorite hike for kids. Make sure you stop by Mountain-Hi (in Kamas) for lunch and a milkshake!

Great trail, beautiful and easy enough for our 9 and 4 year olds!

Absolutely gorgeous! A little bit of everything that makes me smile. Flowers, water, trees, dramatic rock formations, aspen trees and small meadows.

This is a gorgeous, well-marked trail great for kids. Thick, healthy flora provides shade most of the way.

An absolute favorite hike for the whole family. Easy trail. Well marked. Follows the river all the way to the falls at the end. Lots of shade makes it perfect in the heat.

Yes it is a simple trail but with everything you could want in a hike. Cascading water over moss covered rocks. Wild flowers everywhere. First time I have ever seen wild irises. Incredible deep forest smells. Willows every where. Bird song. This will put you in an incredible mood. I have been out of Utah for years but this brought back all of the memories of my youth in Utah. I came from Texas nd this fulfilled all of my expectations.

Very beautiful trail. Definitely a beginner trail. I did not pass anyone at all on the trail.

love every minute of it. i have been hiking it ever since i was a kid

Beautiful trail! Nobletts Creek is really running high with all the run-off. A couple sections were a little washed out, but we crossed them without getting our feet wet because of the plentiful logs and boulders. The mossy creek is so beautiful! I would have given this hike 5 stars, but the forest service has cut down a bunch of trees and left them along the trail. I know the cut logs will decompose and it’s good to remove trees for safety reasons, but seeing cut logs everywhere detracted from the beauty. But 4 stars is still really good, and the kids (15,12,9) has a great time.

Other than the doe that walked close to us, we had the trail to ourselves. Still had some snow in spots but a really easy walk. Finished off the morning with breakfast at Woodland Biscut company.

Still some snow and it can get slippery in some areas. Good hike for kids, But the river is going very fast this time of year.

Easy hike, about hour and half in and back.

Took the kids, it was great. The trail had spots of mud but the temperature was perfect. Beautiful hike and we will be doing it again soon.

off road driving

We drove atv's from parking area at soapstone basin until you get to Iron mine lake. First half of a mile you are on pavement then graded dirt road that a car could drive for the next 5 miles. After you fork to go toward mill hollow or keep going straight toward the lake it gets rocky the rest of the way and slows you down significantly. We went through two flooded areas that were about a foot deep at its deepest, their span was about 20 feet across. Best parts of the trail! Finally when you arrive at the lake you are greeted with a serene untouched mountain lake with lillies and a large meadow. It is quiet and beautiful. We turned back to the parking area whole trip was about 4 hours. Great for going somewhere new to you.

I really liked this trail. It was super easy and the view is amazing.

horseback riding
Friday, August 04, 2017

Rode horseback with two young boys. Trail is a little overgrown but extremely beautiful. You basically ride up a picturesque little river/creek until you get to the end where there is a gentle waterfall where you can sit and take pictures. BEWARE.... at the end of this trail there is a small sign which has been damaged saying "end of trail" HOWEVER, the trail is very well travelled beyond making you think you can go on but it basically goes up and becomes a cliff side which you can not tell it will dead end into the side of a cliff util you are way up in there and there is now room to turn around. This is a very dangerous mistake on three horses with youth.

We just did this hike the end of July 2017. Took our six-year-old and we all brought water shoes. My daughter LOVED this hike! Almost the whole trail was shaded so it was nice and cool. It follows the creek and there were many shallow places to stop and go walk/wade around in the freezing cold water. There are no downed trees blocking the trail, everything was cleared away. There were fallen trees that crossed the creek and were loads of fun for kids to walk across. The trail is easy to follow. The waterfall/spring at the end was beautiful and was a strong current so keep a hold of your kids. Definitely worth the 1 hour drive to get out of the heat/valley.

this was a perfect hike to do with kids of all ages!

This is a very irresponsible thing to do in the outdoors. Leave the nature the way it was intended to be enjoyed. Do not ever leave markings on hikes.

Beautiful flowers in July. It is well maintained trail. We saw a lot of animals on our trip. Our family had a lot of fun!
