Beautiful varied scenery. Totally worth hiking.

Fun trail with lots of shade. Wife and I really enjoyed it. Lots of bikes on the way up but bikes aren’t allowed on downhill portion. Enjoy!

Absolutely awesome hike. Definitely steep as the other reviews mentioned, but only took about 45 minutes to the top so it’s doable. The view is 100% worth it. Be careful coming down, there are a lot of loose rocks easy to slip on.

Not enough shade, need to be there first thing in the morning. Did see a beautiful large moose grazing and that was exciting. Very dusty trail, mountain bikers don’t slow and give you time to yield to them. I probably wouldn’t do again.

Very steep uphill and compensated by also being very steep downhill. Not much shade either. The mine is cool but there are better trails to get there and back. We have hiked a lot of better trails in Park City.

This I feel should be more on the difficult side. straight up climb with a lot of shade, but once on top there is a bench you can sit on a take on the beautiful view. Coming down the loose rocks will slide under foot so go slow! However I would do this one again.

Pretty diverse hiking. part of it was on an open, rocky trail, but lots of side trails to venture off to. Saw a neat old abandoned mine along the way, a beautiful grove of aspens, and a forest of firs. Used GPS tracker a lot-no trails markers.

Awesome, except there are narrow spots, where trimming can be done. I took my 2 1/2, 9, and 11 y/o on it. Little one walked over half of it.

This was a lovely walk this morning. lots of cool shade, aspens, wild flowers, and great views. Saw a Western Tanager early in the hike.

never too crowded, beautiful views of park city, and well-shaded throughout

Easy to hike, some nice views of the beautiful area, but nothing particularly unique on the landscape beyond the abandoned mine building.

Easy going hike with some beautiful scenery along the way up. The saddle has a decent view of surrounding mountains.

New hiker family w/ 1 nature lover and some reluctant members (and a healthy bit of bickering! ) We tried this hike and loved it! Great views.. very private.. and challenging but not too bad. Trail markers were very clear. Also- pro tip — I made my kids (teens) think of songs for each trail picture—- which really added to the bickering! You are welcome !

Beautiful views, but the overgrown bushes made it difficult to even walk through it. Does it ever get maintenanced? Also, saw a momma mouse and her baby about 25 ft away from me, so that was my cue to quietly descend and go back home. If you’re into those kinds of thing, then let this trail be the first on your list!

This trail is good for a quick trail run/hike. Best to do early morning or dusk. Watch out for moose.

Great hike with plenty of shade and sun. I got a bit confused when trail signs denoting Rob's trail seemed to stop. I keep turning right to go higher. Trail markers said Mid-mountain, GPS here said I was still on track. Great view at the top! Mountain bikers were polite & friendly.
At the end of this trail are a few other options to go further. I opted for the extra bit at the top to reach Murdock's peak-the first part is quite steep & rocky and then eases up. Going down is always a bit more interesting!

Beautiful trail, steep rocky areas, a constant climb to the top! Not too crowded today! Great hike

Picked this trail because of the high reviews. I was skeptical, but pleasantly surprised with how nice this trail was. It had a good amount of shade, the woods smelled great. Nice views and not too difficult. We we quite happy with it overall.

Loved this winding, scenic trail.

The steep trail was worth it once we reached the top!

Beautiful hiking but have to watch out for bikers

Was hard to find and looked overgrown. We didn't start it, just turned around and went to another trail (Rob's Trail) instead.

Smooth trail, not too rocky, uphill but not too steep. Beautiful views and plenty of shade!

I really enjoyed everything about this hike! It was long, with a steady incline throughout. No parts of the trail were really any more challenging than others. The trail itself was relatively soft dirt, with a few rocks jutting out. There were plenty of mountain bikers, all of which were extremely respectful and informative of how many were behind them. The trail is shaded the majority of the time. There are switchbacks towards the upper half that I really enjoyed, because the trail would weave through the thick trees and bushes, then open up to a beautiful meadow and view of the valley below. We began our hike around 11:30a Saturday and finished around 3p. Highly recommend this hike!

Great trail, nice incline, shaded, not too crowded but did see some hikers. The trail head is not marked. It is located where there is no parking signs in between two residential driveways. Before then scenic view, the trail splits and it looks like it could take you to a ton of Park City trails.

Great hike if you’re looking for a workout!

Tip for parking: there is a dirt lot on your left when you’re driving out of park city towards guardsman pass, this is most likely the most convenient lot and it’s also free.

The first half of the trail is essentially going up very steadily with no flat ground breaks. Keep your app open so you can follow the map. There aren’t any trail markers.

Once you complete the uphill portion you can explore the old mine buildings which have historical plaques. Once you’re up you can hike around the park city ski runs and get some stunning views of the park city valley.

When you’re ready to go down make sure that you follow the ski runs that say town lift or your map. Once again, this is all downhill and quite steep at parts. Hiking shoes/boots with good tread and support are essential to enjoying this hike.

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.

My go to running trail when I am in Park City. Beautiful - perfect if wanting a smooth flat running trail. Varied surfaces with asphalt, dirt or wooden bridges. Nice vista’s and cool art sculptures en route. Connects to several trails that are similar and you add on and can get in 13 miles round trip going from Park City to Kimball Junction. Also 3 miles in there is a clean public bathroom at Ranch Road that I always stop at before I continue with run.
