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.

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.

I just discovered this area this year and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve fished all over Utah/Wyoming/Idaho and this is one of the best places.

Great hike. Challenging.

my dogs and i enjoyed this little hike. nice and quite

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!

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.

Nice uphill venture.. always solitary if you want to really get away from everyone

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.

July 30 2016. There are 2 things I liked a lot about the Foreman trail; it is a loop trail, so you don't have to see where you've just been a 2nd time, and also that it is a true intermediate hike.
At the Lodgepole campground entrance there is a parking area for about 10 cars just before the fee station. We paid the day use $8 fee but maybe this isn't mandatory. Walk north along the paved campground rd that is parallel to the hwy, at the end of the loop go around a locked road gate and continue on the dirt road. A sign about 100 meters farther shows the turnoff to the trail on your left. [Turning here will take you around the loop clockwise. If you want to go counterclockwise, keep going past the primitive road turnoff and you will meet the trail in about 1/4 mile]. This is a primitive road at 1st. About 100 meters farther, go through another gate and then reach the trailhead proper, to the right.
The biggest negative on this hike is that there are quite a few fallen trees across the trail mostly in the middle third. Sometimes you can easily climb over or duck under, a couple times you have to make short detours around. I estimate an extra 30 min hike time from the trees on the trail.
It took us a little less than 3 hrs for the hike including a 15 min break to eat something. Coming down the small creek drainage in the last hour was the prettiest part. We saw a couple Ruffed Grouse along the trail there. We saw one deer. Some flowers but not a lot now. There are a few cows but they are skittish and run off as you get close. There was no running water in the creeks or spring at this time. We didn't meet any other hikers on the trail but could see boot prints. A nice hike.

not a bad trail, but go early in the day. it was overly warm at 830 am. Right now the wild flowers are in full bloom and that is a sight.
it might get a little to buggy here soon as well.
oh and several different types of butterflies everywhere enjoying the flowers.
