Ended up being about 4.75 miles out and back
saw mama and baby moose near beginning, steep!

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.

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!

Loved this winding, scenic trail.

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!

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.

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.

This trail starts to the left of the Silver Lake Express chairlift in Deer Valley at Silver Lake Lodge and is used by a horseback riding company. Not a bad thing except the trail was dusty and very soft, loose dust-I thought I was walking on the beach in Destin, FL. Once you get to the deck, picnic tables and grills turn around and go back or you’ll be walking up a service road-not scenic. The lake is Jordanelle reservoir in the distance. Not a lake you touch or feel.

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.

Great off leash fun for dogs but not in heat of summer unless you are willing to carry a lot of extra water. There is no water at all on this trail in the summer and as mentioned in prior review trails are mostly fully exposed. I hike and bike this frequently in fall and winter because of easy access. In the spring it can be muddy ( but not this year). I have seen moose here more than once - mostly in the winter months.

Much dustier and rockier than expected. This is more of a bike trail. No shade and no river crossings. Pretty views though.

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!

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. :)

Excellent riding with a nice variety of trails beyond this one. Definitely challenging and fun with plenty of technical spots.

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.

The gate was open, and the trail was lush and green. A few downed trees are still on the trail. Hollyhocks and wild roses can be found.

Nice paved trail outside Park City on the west side of the highway, nice scenic route along gentle hills. Contender Bicycles has opened a new bike shop at the end of the trail. The trail becomes White Pine Canyon road that leads to the Canyons Resort. The Park City end of trail becomes wide sidewalks that connect to other trails.

I would not recommend this trail. It gets one star for views. But it was dusty, full of horse manure and you return on a steep uninteresting fire road.

I recommend you skip this one and take the Silver Lake Trail which is longer but a 5 star hike to bald mt. Even if you turn around 1/2 way to the top and call me back.

This trail winds up and down a hillside, partially through a wealthy neighborhood. On over half the hike the highway is visible, which was a bummer. There is a fairly short section with shade, but mostly you hike alongside shrubs and wildflowers. We saw a snake, two deer and heard many critters rustling in the bushes. My puppy loved the dog beach at the stream. We were all happy that the dogs we encountered were on leashes. The restroom and drinking fountain at the trailhead were nice.
