We love this trail. But about three weeks ago my dog got suddenly sick and passed away after hiking in the same spot on this trail two days in a row. I am wondering if anyone else had a similar experience?

Moderately steep! A nice upper glute burner through a cool ponderosa pine forest with long traverses. A very nice trail run/hike. There's a stream with a gradual water fall on the shared trail with Taylor's Canyon. After crossing the second bridge the trail continues to the right. It's a bit steep at first but the grade becomes less severe the rest of the way up. There is butte with a view a third of the way up. At the rocky top peak or butte is exposed with great views of the valley below and Mount Ogden behind. The descent had a few rocky turns, but it wasn't bad. Just watch your step.

Great for trail running. Perfect breaks between hills. Not scenic though.

These two 65 YOA flatlanders from Kansas enjoyed the hike. It had some beautiful views.

Beautiful falls

this was a great trail.

Love this trail! Easy for the littles and shady in most spots.

Beautiful trail, take your time and really enjoy the views.

It was a really challenging trail for me. It’s a good trail to overlook the city, but not much of an escape. I would recommend it for fireworks watching. The traffic, planes, trains, and emergency vehicles are audible all the way up the trail. The work you put in doesn’t feel like an equal output.

Nice Sunday drive

Always a favorite of mine!

This was a great hike. It is correctly labeled as "hard," but only because of the distance. The trail is a steady climb up switchbacks for a few miles, and then several miles of ridge-walking, before a strenuous climb to the summit that lasts approximately one mile. By the time that I was done, my joints were aching and I was very tired, but only because I had hiked 17 miles, and not because of any particularly difficult section.

We saw moose and mountain goats, and we signed our names in the log book at the summit. It was a great day.

Enjoyed the challenging hike during the cooler temperatures. Very peaceful at the end to relax.

one of my favorites especially in the fall. beautiful colors and views. I start at 27th or 22nd.

This trail takes you through beautiful pine forest. The view from the top is also nice.

Loved this hike! We took the fork to the left at the end and connected to Hidden Valley to make a big loop! Will definitely be doing this again!

Not a bad hike, definitely worth the views. Cold and windy at the top, great way to spend the day in the mountains. Took 6 hrs 40 mins with spending about 30 mins at the peak.

October is a pleasant time to trail run or hike this moderate to easy trail. The entire trail was carpeted with the fallen mable and oak brush leaves. I recorded 1.7 miles to the distination which is a grove of trees. I guess it could be called the trail to nowhere. Which was not a bad thing because I really enjoyed the quiet stillness and solitude.

I use this trail all year round for hiking, mountain biking and snow shoeing. Of the three, it's best for snow shoeing after a heavy snowfall.

Slightly more difficult than Quail Trail that starts from the same trailhead but not much. Good for a quick outing with kids.

It was a bi sketchy going to the trail. The road to get there is off road and I would only take a vehicle that you know can make it up. I was taking my F-150 and it was very tight at times right on the edge of the cliff with other people coming down.

It was pretty terrible. The hike was fine, me and my friend got lost a little bit, but nothing serious. The views were great too!! We found the cave just fine. BUT the cave sucks! The ropes that you use to climb up to the cave are SKETCHY!! They were pretty worn and I did not feel safe. When I got the guts to climb up into the cave, it was stupid. It smelled really bad, and there were spiders on the ceiling and it was super spooky.
Me and my friend DO NOT recommend the cave, but we DO recommend the hike.

Great hike

This hike is always a fun short hike to do! It gets you out of the house and gets some cardio in with the incline. Plus at the end you can see over the Ogden valley and not to mention the waterfall! The best time to go is once the snow is melting because the rub off makes the waterfall huge! It’s beautiful! You’ll enjoy it for sure!

Even in the fall there is actually an impressive waterfall at the end of the trail. Definitely a hiking trail. The last half is shaded. Great trail over a lunch break or just after work.

Too many people are leaving their dog shit in small plastic bags along the trail. Come on people! Do you think that the city hires someone to cleanup after you and your k9?

Good hard trail to hike. Beautiful views!

Good hike for kids. We took them during sunset and it was beautiful. Leaves are starting to change colors. Recommend this hike in the Fall.

The pond and little creek are beautiful. It is in an area where it closes at dusk. Love walking around the pond.

Starting at the Cold Water Canyon trailhead for this hike there was a large congregation of wasps blocking the trail about 0.75 miles in. They were attracted to the water that flowed over the trail and there wasn't a good way around them. We decided to turn around and hike a different trail in the canyon instead.
