Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Midway with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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

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!

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

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.

Beautiful scenery with a few fun spots to maneuver on the trail

This was a cool and difficult hike. The climbs to the peak were definitely difficult and we stopped a few times for water and to catch our breath. The view from the second peak is beyond gorgeous! Great views of the 2 or 3 lakes that we were near. We actually ended up scrambling down from the second peak towards the lake and then went to the trail that led to Bloods Lake. However, even if we did the loop that was specified, it would not have been 10 mikes. The hike, at most, is 5.5 miles round trip.

Easy, paved trail. Lots of signs with trail directions. Very pretty.

beautiful, great for strolling and leisurely enjoying nature

We've taken the kids a couple of times. Nice easy little nature walk.

Simple, paved - the dogs loved it.

One of my all time favorite alpine trails. It has some steep climbs and extremely fun downhill sections!

Start on ridge-157 and make your way back in the Elk Camp trail. It makes for the perfect loop that’s challenging and rewarding with some great views. Occasionally you might run into some wild like - deer, elk, and especially moose (see photos)

Can see Heber Valley, Brighton ski resort from the top

A few years ago this was a great trail. The Rock Crawlers have chewed it up so bad ATVs now get beaten up trying to get over the large boulders . Makes a good hiking trail but we (ATV'S) lost a good trail from misuse. It was to be a 40 inch only but managers didn't do a good job of management.

Hiked the trail today with the dog. Had the area to myself and was able to get it in before the rain. Great views and not too steep.

Very easy paved trail, my kids loved all the bridges. Went this past weekend, and while still pretty, the fall colors are mostly all gone. It wasn't very crowded when we went which was nice. It is quite a drive to get there and I'm not sure it was worth such a long drive.

Very pretty, also very short. We were done and back to our car in about 30 minutes.

RIDGE TRAIL 157 LOOP

From the Alpine Loop Summit parking area, start hiking on the Lame Horse Trail. You come to a trail junction quickly (.1 mile). Go left at the junction, taking the South Fork Little Deer Creek Trail 252 downhill in the aspens. The trail comes to a road and stop sign. Cross the road to the trail post. At .60 miles you come to the first of many meadows. The trail descends for 1.6 miles and crosses Deer Creek. Today this was really just wooden walkways with no water running underneath. The next landmark is the Cascade Scenic Drive Highway. The unmarked trail continues directly across the highway. From the highway, the trail starts up for the ridgeline in a sagebrush meadow. You leave the meadow for an aspen grove, then scrub oaks and finally conifers near the top. At 3 miles, the trail open up and smooths out to spectacular views of Mount Timpanogos. You arrive at the ridgeline and trail junction. Go left on Ridge Trail 157. Don't take the trail heading downhill. This section takes you to the highest point and the trail drops to the junction for Mud Springs. At this junction and all other junctions, stay to the left. Stay on Ridge Trail 157. The trail takes you back to the Summit parking area. Other users on the trail are mountain bikes and motorcycles. This is a beautiful loop hike with diverse terrain!

Directions: In Utah County, take Highway 92 (Alpine Loop Road) up American Fork Canyon or Sundance Canyon. Drive to the summit and park at the Summit trailhead.

Destination: Loop views
Difficulty: Moderate
Round trip: 6.5 miles
Hiking time: 2.5 hrs

This is by no means hiking. It's all on a wooden, man built trail that allows you to walk over the springs. It's like what they built in Yellowstone. It's a lovely walk though and very peaceful. We even spotted wild turkeys!

Nice evening walk to take with the kids and dog. Weeknights are perfect

Easy trail , lots of wildflowers and running waters.
I dug my feet in the water and it was freezing.
I did this trail last year.

This trail is misrepresented by All Trails. It's not easy, especially the first ~1/4 mile and it's pretty heavily trafficked, not moderately trafficked. Don't get me wrong; it's a blast though. Lake is fun. Kiddos like to catch salamanders there.

Very easy nature walk. I love the diverse ecosystem here and all the signage identifying the various plants and trees.

Took 3 horses on this trail went This is a great trail for anytime of the day. As you get further up it gets better and cooler. We rode almost all the way up Dutch Canyon to the other side. I would have given more stars if only this trail, with all the other converging trails, was not so confusing.

Very kid friendly- took a 3 yr old.
