Varied terrain with nice climb on west side and a new .33 mile one way hike to phosphate hill overlook.

Did access this from the w.o.w (windows on the wasatch trail head) -thanks to prior post suggestion. Just under 6 miles out and back, when you are going up and the trail splits stay to the left and it will get you to the top. Just under 6 because there is a new trail that takes you from the saddle to the top of the mountain...awesome view of midway and wasatch range.

Great trail for a quick hike and great view.

This is a good hike. Although there is little to no shade and quite hot. Bring water!

Well-kept trail with multiple outlets for amazing views of the surrounding area. Some steep areas but, for the most part, very doable.

Nice views of the valley.

Very easy hike with nice views of the valley. There are trails all over. I’ll go back with my bike

Very accessible hike with beautiful views. There are also a lot of side hikes you can take, or if you are me, lots of options to get off track. Luckily there was cell service and the AllTrails map came my rescue.

Excellent family hike. I just wish it had mentioned on here the park fee.

Great hike. Challenging.

Trailhead has one, maybe two parking spots just down the hill, but not much as it is residential. That being said, the north side has the most spectacular fall foliage right now! Get up there soon! Even if you just want to turn back at the saddle and go through it again!

Nice trail for early autumn with leaves beginning to turn. The marked access point is has no parking so Wow Pine trail parking is your option.

Used as access to Phosphate Loop. A little confusing on the return with a couple of side trails.

Awesome trail. Lots of other trails around, this one is closer to a downhill style. Super fun.

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.

Trail is nice but they have restricted parking from Interlaken area with tow away signs. Need to access by hiking up one mile up Wow Trail to reach the Loop or by coming in Dutch Hollow and hiking 1.5 miles up Donkey Ridge trail. Now a Lollipop trail from either trailhead.

We started the loop (going clockwise) about 6:30 pm for short a evening walk. Trail is fairly easy and we could trail run about 70% if it. The switchbacks on the northwest side are easier walked. I would rate this an Easy/moderate trail. Beautiful wildflowers mixed with scrub oak, and amazing view of Midway throughout.

Although rated as "moderate," I thought this was a pretty easy hike with great views of the entire Heber Valley, as you circle Phosphate Hill. The south side of the hill is exposed and the north side is pretty shady.

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!

Great workout.

This hike ended up being 6.7 miles from the trailhead and back, which was quite a bit longer than we anticipated. We did the loop counter-clockwise, and the last half was much shadier and nicer than the first. Gorgeous wildflowers, including numerous sego lilies, and an eagle soaring overhead were the highlights. Worth the trek, would be good for trail-running, but no water so take your own.

Not sure why it's rated moderate. It's an easy hike. The trail is pretty and the first part runs along a neighborhood. There are a couple of places where the trail splits but it isn't marked to tell you which direction you're supposed to take. I don't know if it all loops back together but it seems like it might be easy to get lost if you don't have a good sense of direction.

The majority of the trail parallels the main road so it's not the best hike if you're wanting to get away from traffic noise.

Very fun trail, not as hard as AllTrails says. A few ups and downs but nothing steep. Enjoyed the big skull affixed to a tree at the end.
