As advertised, the first mile is very steep but then mellows out. It took me 1 hr 10 minutes up with some snow on the trail (Nov 17) during the last half mile. It snowed all day and the lake was covered in snow. Definitely will do again earlier in the year.

Easy hike with options to do a straight up the mountain which was challenging. The views of the valley from the top are awesome but pale in comparison to the memorial and the historical and patriotic feel at the top! ❤️

Not a hike, but a gentle walk. Beautiful perfect for elderly or little kids. 3 loops to chose from. Lots of benches to rest and Rockwall areas to sit on too.

I picked this hike because of the name...what's Pittsburg doing in Utah?! I didn't research much just read a couple of comments. Luckily I was in a jeep. The long dirt road is very treacherous. You definitely need a high clearance vehicle for this road. Really, don't attempt it without one. Huge boulders in the road. The map took me to the exact right spot (using Apple maps) and then I pulled up the all trails app to find the trail and stay on it. I was wondering how a mile and a half hike could be rated hard and then I did it. Yep. Straight up. I saw no one else on the trail - but it was October and snowy! I was sad to not see a moose and then saw a huge bull moose right at the end!i will definitely go back in the summer and maybe camp overnight. It really was beautiful and worth it.

Agreeing with the other poster about this trails rating. Once you cross the river, around the bend there is a rough spot with a lot of boulders. We went while it was wet, and there was no way for us to make it without mud tires. 3 of the 4 keeps behind us turned around and went another route. It is a beautiful, rocky ride. Very heavily travelled and several with trailers beyond where they shouldn’t have been. Most everyone is courteous.

Nice short hike up to Clayton Peak. It is steep to begin with. At the top instead of going over the boulders I went west or to the right around them then up to the peak. Not much boulder hopping that way. It was snow at the top so the views were limited but still amazing. Then I went down to Blood Lake. Beautiful area. Fall leaves were beautiful in the snow.

Early October colors were the best I’ve ever seen. So much beauty in a extremely kid friendly hiking location. After we left here we took the Alpine Scenic road over to Sundance for lunch at the deli. Incredible place and highly recommended.

I really wanted to love this trail, and I did! great for beginners and photographers who want lots of little streams and mini waterfalls.

I love this place. I always bring my dog and boyfriend to this trip whenever we are available. It’s a very peaceful place to walk around and see pretty plants around the water.

Beautiful but brutal hike! Very peaceful at the top.

started around 8 am. Road up to the trail is rough, so dont go without the proper vehicle. On the way up, we only ran into one jeep. Hike up is fine, not too tough but nothing special. The fall scenery once you get to the lake is amazing though. ATVs on the way back down around 1030 ish, but not too bad.

The views are worth it but the path near the top is a little tricky with all those boulders to cross. I really enjoyed Bloods Lake. I would go again just for that area alone however the dog poop bags were very unpleasant to have to pick up. So disgusting! Please pick up after your pets. Do NOT leave the bags on the side to pick up later because you may forget and it pollutes the area and makes it unpleasant for hikers walking by when they are trying to enjoy the scenery. Thanks!

Awesome hike. Absolutely beautiful on the peaks!

did not expect as a challenging trail but surprisingly amazing place...very relaxing. for sure I'm gonna bring my family next time for new adventure.

Nice displays, easy.

How are you peeps finding this trail head? I followed Google maps in my F150 yesterday and the road just turns into an impassible four wheeler trail. I had to turn around and go to silver lake with the rest of Utah county.

Super fun pack light

Great trail to get away from the crowds. And the water temp was perfect for a swim.

Good trail but hot and dry. Also watch for rattle snakes! And bring water.

this is definitely not 10.3 miles I think it's closer to 7.5. At the top of Clayton is a stretch of about 100 m of Boulders that you have to climb through it is not a path. Might be hard for dogs

Tough hike. I took my 10 year old daughter on her first overnight backpacking trip. This was definitely a tough hike. Great fishing.

Excellent if you want to escape the smoky valleys right now! The water isn't as clean as I remember as a kid but this makes for the most perfect after work hike/stroll. Mostly completely paved. Stunning views, tranquil waters and perfect temps for summer!

We followed the AllTrails directions and ended up 1.8 miles from the trail head. We started walking and realized there was a road below the trail we were on - so circled back to the car and followed the map and ended ip at the right trailhead. The hike is hard because it is so steep. Views are beautiful and the lake is Amazing. not a hike for beginners, this one kicked our butts. But now one of our favorites! .

Amazing views that are usually shaded, you have dirt bikes on the trail as well as horses.
Great hike for larger dogs; some parts get a bit steep but it’s well worth it.
You’ll come to a point close to Tibble Fork where a sign points to the trail, of you go the opposite direction you come out by the dam at Tibble Fork.

Fun Area! Great views and nice trail.

Nice easy trail. Rough drive to get to the trail head.

Not a hike, but nice for a nature walk! Beautiful wild flowers and streams!

wonderful... early morning pleasant

Great secluded hike! I will be going back with a fishing pole.

Mileage is wrong. Less than 4 miles. Lots of rocks to slow you down if you are running. Amazing vistas at the top and a couple nearby lakes to cool you down.
