Went horseback riding on trails and gravel roads (?) in Dry Canyon area. Went up the Dry Canyon trail through the cliffs then north on the Curly Springs trail. Heavily used area. Really rocky/gravel/shale covered trails in many areas. Lots of side trails created by mountain bikers. Once out of the cliff area its mostly oak brush with nice views into valley and up canyon towards Mt Timpanogos but I never quite feel like I've left the urban area. Limited shade w/85% exposure to sun. Ok trails if you're looking for a quick get away but nothing worth making a long trip to get here. Typical of Wasatch front foothills scenery.

Good trail up dry canyon. Once the trail got closer to little baldy, we missed a turnoff that put us on some biking trails and added a couple miles. If you’re going to do this trail, watch the map carefully around little baldy.

Also, it doesn’t appear that there is a way to actually get up little baldy.

I did this trail on Mother’s Day 2018. It was my first hike of the season and first hike since I was a teenager.

It was nice. The trail was kind of worn out as you approached the saddle. Overall a nice hike that got me hooked!

AllTrails is inaccurate on the loop trail back. The Little Baldy trail forks several times with no indication which one gets back to Dry Canyon, so as long as you follow the Ridgeline and don't get distracted by other primitive trails, you'll be fine. Bring all the water you need; there are no sources of water. Not many places to camp, as the grass is all untouched and the trails are overgrown, but hammocking worked out fine for us. Lots of bees and wasps, but they didn't sting us. Weather at night was pristine, and there was plenty of shade on the way up.

We didn’t go all the way up but lots of shade from scrub oak trees

trail running

It was clear that the second half of the trail wasn't used much, at least if you follow this exact route. The trail was rough and pretty overgrown at parts, my legs got a huge rash on them by I think some stinging nettle that had overgrown the trail around mile 4, and I think I somehow missed any turnoff for the actual Little Baldy summit (I think this route just goes around it). That said, it did offer some really beautiful views, but I don't anticipate running this route again.

The directions on the app are incorrect. You need to go east on 200 South in Lindon then turn left on Dry Canyon Drive.

It’s definitely a difficult hike, but once you get about a half mile in, it gets easier.

This trail was beautiful! It doesn’t have very much shade, so make sure to bring lots of water and sunscreen. It was definitely a nice hike without being difficult. We did see three rattlesnakes while hiking, so just be aware of your surroundings!

Holy elevation gain, Batman! You’ll go up, up, and up for awhile on these trails. You get well into the wilderness although civilization remains within view for most of the hikes. There are multiple trails here—some more treacherous and rewarding than others—and there aren’t many folks. You could spend all day here weaving your way through and around the canyon. Watch out for rattlesnakes—they hang out here! Don’t be fooled by the residential location. These trails are legit and the payoff in views is worth it.

Great view

The trail is bad

Great little hike.

Its about 2.5 more miles to add the north-east Big Baldy Summit and its no harder than the Dry Canyon Trail incline.
Also a great view point on the Little Baldy side for another .5 miles or so.

We did this trail on a clear November day. it was fairly steep for about 2.5 miles. and then we turned at the top and began the loop down. it seemed like a clear trail but somehow we got off track and didn't see where the trail broke off and ended up going almost three miles further. For a total of 9.63 miles. Not sure how we missed it, we were following the app. The trail we we on paralleled the trail on the map, which was more confusing. This trail seems to be used by bikers quite a lot.

good steep hike. great view

Saturday, June 10, 2017

great hike. firs half mile is strenuous to get up above the cliffs. beyond that I suggest going northwest-ish another mile/ mile and a half to the Battle creek overlook. Gorgeous views and frightening cliffs. Also, if you do scale the immediate cliffs to the left of the trail up Dry Canyon--be aware of rattlesnakes. Saw one today, chilling under its rock perch, see pics attached.

5.21.2017 | 10lb Backpack | Recommend: Trekking Poles

I didn't even know this canyon existed until I heard about it through word of mouth. My GSD and I were happy to explore it even though it's strenuous!

As previous people have said, there's a North fork and a South fork (no signage, you just have to notice it when you get there). I forked North on a rainy Sunday afternoon and met 3-4 people on the trail. There were plenty of deer out and saw quite a few birds as well. There are many criss-cross trails to explore and a great one toward the beginning that leads across the cliff to a beautiful valley overlook.

As you might expect, the most rewarding part is reaching the top and standing in awe of Timp. At this point you can make your hike as long or as short as you want to by continuing to follow trails at the top or turning back. I would recommend poles on the way down, especially if it's raining since it gets slick!

This is a canyon I can't stop thinking about and will return to for further exploration and peaceful enjoyment.

Great views, you don't even need to hike super far for them. There's a nice side trail that loops back on top of the ridge with a stunning view of the valley.

If a 3 year old can do this trail, you can do it. She loved it, so did her 5 year old brother. Great hike saw a lot of deer and some bear tracks just past the cliffs to the left of the trail head sign.

Perfect time of year for this hike, recommend Sunday's as no ones out!

cool views. constantly climbing but not the worst.

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

Deceptively difficult, this is not a "moderate hike." If you follow the path outlined, you can go one of two ways, neither of which is easy.

Taking the south fork up, your path will be less steep to the summit of Big Baldy, but the way down will be very very steep. We had to go down backwards, nearly climbing, using our hands for support. The path down to the west from the summit is extremely steep, with loose dusty gravel and rocks. It's doable, but slow.

Going up the north fork will be an extremely steep ascent, but the descent will be a lot safer. However, that path is more in the shade, so will be cooler and get dark earlier.

In any case, this is one of the more difficult, frustrating hikes I've done, due to the long descent, loose rocky trail conditions, and steep grade coming down. Some awesome views all around, but not one I would do again soon.

good for camping

Friday, August 19, 2016

This hike needs to be considered as hard because it was a very difficult hike to climb, but for those who want to hike Dry Canyon need to pack A LOT of water especially if your bringing your dog because they need water as much as you do. As for little dogs if they're having a difficult time walking bring a backpack big enough to carry your dog. Keep your phones fully charged in case of emergency. Just be safe out there guys.

I love this trail because it takes you right under Mt. Timp and the views are amazing. It's a beautiful little canyon and the hike is medium difficulty for a day hike

Friday, June 17, 2016

Not as easy as I thought it would be but camping in Hidden Valley is incredible. It's amazing how it just turns into a flat, grassy valley in the midst of the mountain.

So... According to my iPhone's health app we went 9.29 miles by staying on this trail... I'm out of shape obviously. This took us more than 4 hours to complete. It is really steep for over a mile. This is definitely NOT EASY...
