Great hike, beautiful. It was just SO hot when we went.

I can't believe more people have not reviewed this Trail it was absolutely stunning! There's no way that it is easy, I would rate it at least moderate as it's uphill in some areas. I hiked up this Trail and then took the Ontario Trail on the way down. It was an incredible hike. Highly recommended.

Very boring not much to see as views

Great trail

Trailhead not marked but once your on the trail you’ll be going uphill for 1 mile to a magnificent overlook. Trail is aspens/spruce and firs with very few clearings to hike through. Only saw 13 people and 6 dogs. Mostly rocky trail

I liked this trail although we ran into a number mountain bikers. Beautiful aspen forest.

This was such a beautiful hike. We were on the trail at 7 on Saturday morning and had the trail to ourselves until the way back down - lots of mountain bikers. The foliage was full, the aspens were stunning, and the wildflowers were a dream. We went all the way up to Murdoch Peak. It was a perfect moderate hike on a well travelled trail, with steady inclines and shade about 60% of the time.

It was so hot, which didn't help. It was good overall. The trail intersected dirt roads and have to watch out for the mtn bikers.

I haven’t hiked this for a month or so but I usually hike up to the bench and back so don’t get the same mileage as stated even though it is still a nice moderate hike. This is a trail for almost anytime of year except right when it is becoming slush in spring. Mostly shaded with lots of trees so beautiful in fall also. I have never seen moose on this trail but have many friends that say they have seen them on this hike. This would be a good hike for visitors to Park City adjusting to altitude as it does not involve steep climbing.

This is a steady climb and good workout, not a super long hike. Will be a bit more difficult if you’re not used to altitude because of climb but very doable. Hiked at dusk yesterday and nearly ran into a moose!! Last week I hiked up to mid mountain trail instead of summit. Very nice trail but current noise pollution from Colony construction infringes on what would be a fabulous hike. Don’t recommend hiking the mid mountain portion at this time if you enjoy solitude and nature.

Wasn't prepared for the steady incline. Thought about turning around, but knew I was near the top so kept pushing through. View from the top really nice. Had a hard time finding the trail head, which is in the middle of a cul-de-sac. Glad I did it, but probably want to try other trails before repeating.

A great hike which was challenging with magnificent views. Some of the best views I’ve ever seen. It’s well marked and a must do if you are in the area.

I absolutely loved this hike. It was a great workout with a great reward up at the top. Couldn’t beat the views! The temperature was perfect + I loved being surrounded by so many trees. My dog loved it too. Afterwards we stopped at the Silver Star Cafe on the way down + enjoyed an amazing meal. This hike will easily become a favorite go to!

Good view at the top of the trail.

Amazing ❤️

Awesome.

Perfect quick hike with an amazing and kind of unbelievable view at the top! I finished in 1:15

This trail totally exceeded my expectations. Quiet, lush, a nice steady climb, and only a few friendly travellers along the way. I appreciate having a secluded experience and this definitely checked that box. Gorgeous views from the top! And the nice bench up there was a pleasant surprise.

Great trail for two reasons - very few people and so can take your dogs. In fact most people we run into on trail have dogs. If you hate dogs please stay off this trail and don’t ruin it for the majority of people who love dogs

We rode along Echo Reservoir into Coalville on June 9, 2018. Most of this trail was not paved, and turned out to be harder than I expected due to that. Probably if it was paved it would have been easier. The views are really nice. Keep in mind that at least this part of the trail is sparsely shaded, so it gets HOT!

Excellent to go up Ontario Trail to top of Deer Valley (Bald Mountain) and then make it a looplby going down Silver Lake trail for views of Jordanelle. Start at mid mountain of Deer Valley.

Beautiful trail, especially at the beginning when the trail follows the stream. The wild flowers were gorgeous! While not particularly steep, this trail is more of an endurance game. The fallen trees mentioned in previous comments have been cleared recently. The summit view wasn't much to write home about, and there was nowhere to sit and take in the views (either at the top or on the trail). Definitely glad I went once, probably won't do again. :)

A little tricky to find parking; make sure you obey all signs. I only saw 8 other hikers! Uphill and all big rocks. Beautiful scenery & mix of shade/sun! Loved it! The view from the top is worth the climb...

Don’t miss the cut off at Dawns Trail if you want the loop - it’s more like 3.8 miles.

Make sure you plan for the hike up the series of stairs from Park City’s public parking. This was a hike in and of itself before we even got to the trailhead. Plan for extra time on the trail to stop and admire the views, wildflowers, and animals along the way. We saw a couple deer above us. We didn’t plan for enough time before sunset and never made it to the mine. I suspect we could have made it by starting south on the loop instead of north?

Exposed, monotonous, and deceptively steep. The trail is just an access road up to the mine. It might make for a fun ATV ride (although I'm not sure those are allowed), but not a very interesting hike. We hiked up to the mine, then took the chair lift back to Park City Main Street. The chair lift is free for downhill riders in the summer, and we took the free trolley to the top of Main Street to get close to where we parked.

The mine at the top was very cool, so if your goal is just to get to the mine, this is probably the most direct route there. With as many trails as there are in this area, though, I'm sure at least one of them must be more interesting than this route.

Hard work on way up. But beautiful forest views and satisfying finish

Completed in mid June 2018. I really enjoyed walking through the mountain forrest. the combination of thick trees and thick vegetation was very cool. the beginning seems to be the most difficult part out of Park City, but once you hit the switch backs and the thick trees it is not too bad. took me and my two boys about 1hr 45 minutes at a slow but study pace. I really enjoyed this trail. did not see anyone else on this trail, but could see evidence of past mountain bike use. would be hard to pass a biker on switch back trail is very narrow. we rode the ski lift back down. made the climb worth the it. ski lift is free coming down. $24 per person to go up.
