Best scenic trail with ebikes! Good place for fishing too, got some fish so big that snapped our line.

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)

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.

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

I only gave this 3 stars because the "trail" is really just a service road and I'm sorry but that is very different from a trail. The view from the top is beautiful though. Parking is very limited because of Blood lake Trail across the street, which is very popular. Go early, this is a very exposed hike.

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.

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.

Good trail, lots of trees to provide shade for most of the trail. There was a nice little stream adjacent to the trail. Too many motorcyclists on the trail.

I parked at Pine Hollow Trailhead since the road was blocked, then picked up this trail about 1.3 miles in. Absolutely gorgeous views! From the Pine Hollow trail head to the 157 summit was a lil over 4 miles, out and back, approx 8.2 miles which took a lil over 4 hrs.

Nice fairly easy biking /snow shoeing trail. Only negative is noise from highway at times, I prefer more remote.

We took our mules and had a great time. Easy ride. Much like riding on a dirt road. Weather was perfect

Great trail. Takes about 3 hours. Boulder section at beginning is the toughest part, but pretty easy to get through. Beautiful views and a lot of fun. There is a crap ton of ATVs on the trail though, so in a Jeep or truck, it gets annoying.

Slight incline, beautiful scenery. Lots of different trains attached.

Fun single track - easy access, rolling hills. A bit of an up out of the trailhead but worth the climb. Fun afternoon break from meetings!

I really thought this would be an actual lake but it's not kinda disappointed

Great for families, we had 2 4 year olds and a 3 year old with us and they loved it. Views on the ride in to the trailhead are great too. Took us about 40 min round trip even pausing at the top.

Pretty view of the valley below and a fairly easy trail. I went in mid-March and it was still very brown and a little dull. It would be perfect on a summer evening!

Nice trail system on the north foothills of the Heber Valley. It's pretty mild for hiking, but great for snowshoeing and mountain biking. Plenty of paths in beautiful scenery to chose from.

We went at the end of October to avoid to ATV's. I'm sure they appreciated that as well. The ATV trail runs around the perimeter of the lake making the lake look like a mud puddle. But because we went during the cold season it was quiet and the view was beautiful. The winter trees and fallen leaves made up for it. We also saw several deer.
