my son took me on this hike. It was a work out for me but I really enjoyed the scenery.

Fun hike! A great workout and fairly steep most of the way. The trail was busy on a Saturday morning so watch where you step, lots of dog poop on the trail. Not much water running either.

on Malan's Peak Trail

There is quite a dense network of trails in this area, especially at the bottom of the canyon, and it looks like you could do this in a couple of different ways. Parts of this trail are included in at least 3 other trail entries on AllTrails. I just started at the end of 27th street and followed the signs for the north side of Taylor Canyon, and then took the signed turn to Malan Peak. After you take that turn, it is as others have said, relentlessly steep uphill. You can pretty much get the idea from the benchmark lines on the map. I guess the thing is to go slow and maintain a cheery disposition. Almost no water in the creek, no snakes and very few bugs this early Sunday morning. After reaching the peak I went another .5 miles into Malan Basin, which was nice and a bit cooler, but I guess I turned around just short of reaching the old resort.

From the map it looks like you could do this as a loop using the Beus Canyon Trail, but other reviews warn that this is very difficult and requires bushwhacking. It's not clear if this refers to hooking up with Beus Canyon, Waterfall Canyon or Mount Ogden trails. I don't think I would ever have the energy for the option of winding all the way up to the top of Mount Ogden from this trail, especially when you can take a gondola most of the way up from Snowbasin.

Love this hike! Very steep! But the full hike is 7 miles not 4.4 ...

Hiked this mid July and started around noon. Start of trail you are more exposed. Then shade for majority of trail. With a 1 and 2y/o we took our time due to heat. Scenery beautiful and would have appreciated a few more signs.

This is a favorite hike for our family. The waterfall is impressive. Try it in the winter if you haven’t! It’s a good workout and a fair climb but my young kids have all been able to do it.

Beautiful hike! If you go in the morning you can avoid the afternoon/weekend rush, as well as the heat. The trail has plenty of shade half way up.

Great trail but a little too busy for my liking...

Hiked this trail with my 9 year old and my parents. It was an uphill journey. Had to stop quite a bit near the top. I’m in moderate shape. It was an awesome workout with a beautiful view at the summit! Good amounts of shade along the way to help make steep trail manageable!

My husband and I completed this hike on July 4.

This was an awesome hike! Yes, it's steep, but there was way more shade than we expected, so it wasn't too miserable.

The views st the top were great, and everyone we encountered on the trail was friendly. Great hike to celebrate the 4th of July!

Would really recommend this hike to those who are up for the challenge!

A hard hike especially if you are overweight and out of shape but definitely worth it! The view is amazing! I would like to see dogs on leashes though.

Really nice hike! pretty steep all the way up but definitely worth it. watch for rattlers!!!

streams. rocks. snakes. bees. wild berries. shade. waterfall. what's not to love?

Pretty good workout. Went today 6/29 around noon with my sister and got caught between some rattlesnakes! One I went past but my sister saw, so with it being a pretty narrow trail and the snake being on the edge of the trail near the river, I went up and around the brush to go around it. Later we saw another one that was just too close, so we took a break to give it some time to get comfortable, then said a quick prayer and snuck past it as it slept. Nice hike!

Love this hike. I guess if you are a very mild hiker it is “hard”. It’s a workout but I would have rated it moderate.

My husband and I completed this hike on June 19 with Scout dog.

This trail was mostly shaded, and had a moderately steep incline the entire way.

At one point, we might have taken a wrong turn, because we never made it to a waterfall or an overlook. According to the app, we were still on the trail, and we made it to the "end," but it was just a random clearing in the middle of the canyon. So maybe we should've kept going?

Oh well. A decent, but not spectacular, hike.

Had a pretty good time on this trail was a bit tougher then I expected at the beginning but once I hit the rocky area it got a lot easier for me!

This has always been one of my favorite hikes. Even though the trail is not terribly long, it is a pretty steady incline up to the waterfall. It is well shaded, making it a perfect hike for any time of day, and the falls at the top are nice and cool and absolutely lovely. The farther you go, the rockier and steeper the path gets, but with decent shoes or hiking sandals, it can be done within about two hours.

Great hike! Beautiful views and and really good workout. A group of people coming down before us saw a rattler, so be careful.

I love this hike! It’s mostly shaded. It is a steep incline most of the way, but there are beautiful views at the halfway and the top! A great workout

I love this hike. Trail is pretty easy to follow. Good workout. Lovely view. Towards the ends you have to deal with lots of rocks.

Loved this hike, most of it is shaded so it’s great mid day! Amazing view points so plenty of pit stops if you need a break(: My dogs loved it, a river runs by at the half way point and a waterbowl is set up at the end; that was great! Worth trying just make sure to be prepared for a straight incline hike.

Awesome view at the top! Decent incline most of the way up- worth it though

Incline the whole way...can be tough but the view is worth the cardio

Beautiful hike! Me and my 11 yo and 8 yo did it with me. The 2nd half is steep but the waterfall is so worth it.

We hiked this on a very hot summer day. We believe if we had done this in the early morning, we would feel differently. A beautiful waterfall at the end, but for us, in the middle of July, it was hot and dusty but enjoyed the falls.

Super fun hike! My kids, ages 4 and 5 made the hike without any help but it was definitely challenging!

Beautiful hike with great scenery!!! Pretty steep trail! My legs were screaming at me by the time we made it to the falls!!!
